TDS and IvIn Blog Tour: Day 9

by Kellyn Roth |
June 28, 2017


It’s Day 9! That’s right. For nine ENTIRE days I’ve been posting the EXACT. SAME. POST.* and it is sooo boring for everyone involved.
Including myself.
Like, I am so bored with blogging right now. Because it’s the EXACT. SAME. POST.™ **
So I decided to switch it up a little.

*with slight variants (I have little note things! Like May!)
**I’m also stealing various bloggers’ little ™ thing.
***I’m a filch. (And no, there wasn’t a statement that this was related to. This is totally random.

First we’ll talk about the giveaway. So … in case y’all didn’t know, there’s a great giveaway going on. Huzzah. You can enter here. Much celebration.

|Today’s Posts|

Thanks, ladies!
This is our biggest post day, as you can see … and I couldn’t be happier! I love all these posts.
Jesseca published a interview that I really enjoyed. My favorite question was the one about the hymns.
Jaylee published a character interview with our very own Ivy along with a guest post about writer’s block and how to avoid it.
Zielle published a review of both TDS and IvIn. She said some nice things and then some more critical things that helped me think how I could improve.
J.C. also published a review of both TDS and IvIn! And she also said some nice things and some things that were more critical. (And J.C., I want you to know that I agree with you. I’m working on it …)

|More Stuff Which I Legit Just Copy and Paste*|

‘Cause why not. It’s not like you want original content or anything. It’s not like that’s the #1 reason people keep reading blog posts. *shrugs*

  • Signup here to receive notifications whenever I have a blog tour signup open. This doesn’t mean you’ll automatically be added to a list of people participating in the blog tour … it just means you’ll get notified that a blog tour is coming up. And you can signup if you like to. Or just ignore it. That, too.
  • You can still ask me questions! Just comment below. I’m open for questions on anything … my real life, my writing life, my favorite kind of cookie. You can even ask me real deep questions like, “Whuz up, man?” Because all teenagers seem to think it’s the pinnacle of coolness. *eye roll*
  • Interested in reviewing? I’m looking for people to review my books on Amazon, Goodreads, or their blog. Because whenever a review is posted, an author gets her wings. #truestory You can sign up here.
  • Signed paperback copies!?! You heard it here first (’cause I’m the one who said it). You can now order a signed paperback copy of any one of my novels. Do that here. Copies of either TDS or IvIn will cost $9.99 and a copy of TLOTV will cost $7.99. This does include shipping.

I don’t even care anymore if I’m repeating the same thing over and over again. I’m completely fine with this complete lack of creativity.** And now I’ve repeated complete twice in the same sentence.***

*Although I didn’t this time.
**That’s an outright lie.
***Not a lie.

Did I do better now, folks? Or am I still lame? How am I gonna narrow down what social media links to have before the p.s.? Did you enjoy today’s posts? What was the rarest animal you’ve ever petted? For me, it was a tiger cub.

What do you think of my thoughts?

  1. I think you did better this time at making it more interesting! I was more interested, anyway.
    Okay, before I get down to the business of answering these questions, I want to know…how do you comment on blogspot blogs? Sometimes they have the Name/URL option, which I use, but other times they don’t, and I haven’t been able to get the WordPress option to work–it just never posts. Then I made a blogger account just so I could, but I can’t figure out which option uses that account. So…how do you do it yourself?
    How am I gonna narrow down what social media links to have before the p.s.? I dunno, Kell. For me, I just don’t have any social media to put before the p.s. Not that I have a p.s., but you know… Probably whichever ones have the biggest appeal to readers…whichever ones get the most clicks or something.
    Did you enjoy today’s posts? Yep, they were interesting! I always like reading reviews…it’s interesting to see what other people thought and how they compare to what I think.
    What was the rarest animal you’ve ever petted? For me, it was a tiger cub. WHAT I’M JEALOUS. When did you get to pet a tiger cub? (I’ve pet a tiger…if you count stuffed animals!) Um…for me…probably a baby goat? Which isn’t very rare at all, but hey, I haven’t petted any rare animals before.

    1. I’m glad! Maybe I’ve finally gotten the hang out it … after nine days … 😉
      I have no clue! I struggle with it myself. Most the time I end up just using my Google+ account to comment. I’ve yet to get WordPress to function.
      Yeah, I should probably do something like that …
      I love reviews myself … well, as long as I’ve read the book or really want to read the book … if it’s a book I’m not interested in reading, I’m like, “Eh … I’ll pass ….” Although perhaps the review will convince me to read it …
      We were at a petting zoo on the Southern Coast of Oregon … and there was a baby tiger that they let us pet. I should scrounge up a picture … I was like ten …

      1. Okay, I was worried that I was the only one it happened to, because I haven’t really been able to find anything about it online.
        Yeah, I might read the review if it’s someone I know, but if not it has to be a book I’ve read/want to read.
        Lucky! And aww, little Kell petting a little tiger! That’d be cute.

              1. I agree…not that I ever actually use my reader? I like using my email instead because my reader has sites that I’m following that I’m not actually interested in…everything I want to read gets to go in my inbox. 😛

                1. Well, I like to half-read some of the blogs I don’t want to read and don’t want in my inbox in the Reader. XD Or at least pretend I’m reading them … Though honestly, I follow way too many blogs I’m not even vaguely interested in reading.

                  1. Haha…I feel like I’m only actually reading 10 blogs or something… I mean, nearly all the people writing the blogs I like to read have disappeared off the face of the Internet…where have they goneee? 🙁

  2. It was very interesting, Kellyn. XD I also really liked the interview of Ivy; it really captured her personality.
    P.S. It’s actually the LOVE of money is the root of all evil. Sorry, I had to correct it. 😛
