The tour is kicking into HIGH GEAR today with 4 great new stops, including a guest post on how I came up with the title for Shudder, 2 fantastic Shudder reviews, and 3 new spots you can enter to win the big CBL Tour Prize Pack Giveaway!
From the guest post: You’d think that writing a book is the most difficult part of the process, but for me, that’s generally not the case – coming up with a decent title once I’ve written the thing is *infinitely* harder.

As a result, I find the exercise of naming my books to be a generally daunting and stressful endeavor. So how do I know when I’ve got a good title? Besides satisfying a number of criteria (concise, memorable, simple, upbeat, and goes well with the other titles in the series), I also look for titles with depth – some word or combination of words that convey multiple levels of meaning.

Next up, we’ve got another great reviews PLUS opportunities to enter the CBL Tour Giveaway at all of the remaining stops on today’s schedule. First, from Book Nerds Anonymous:
After reading Stitch, I was really excited to see how this series would go. So many twists and turns happened in that novel, it could only get better. Plus, secrets were revealed, and it’s always fun to watch what happens after that. And it was definitely more than fun in this case. It was emotional, tense, and exciting. <continue reading>
