Give it your best POP!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
This is my last post of 2013!! It's also the final post for my extended POP TRAVEL BLOG TOUR!

I bring you tidings of great joy!
First, I want to thank all my little elves for making my book tour such an awesome experience. I can't express how much I appreciate their help.

And through my busy Fall, I kept up with my schedule, except for the very last one - I'm a week late. Oh, well! My guest post about book trailers goes up at Brinda's today - with a sneak peek at my sample Broken Branch Falls book trailer! I hope you will go see her - and celebrate her release, WATCHER OF WORLDS, too!

I also wanted to let you all know my plans for 2014.
First, I can't believe I've kept the same header for a whole year! So that will change. Now, as I grow as an author, the purpose of my blog must change as well. I would like to make my blog more of a platform for showcasing you all and your upcoming awesomeness!

I am opening my blog to COVER REVEALS, BOOK RELEASE ANNOUNCEMENTS, GUEST POSTS, etc. My plan is to post one or two of these events, about once a week. So if you or someone you know is interested, email me: T A R A T Y L E R T A L K S @ G M A I L . C O M ! I'll be making a new button for it and everything. 2014 is the year I give back. Thanks, y'all!

By the way, Brinda's giveaway reminded me I didn't do one this month, so here it is.
Happy & Safe Holidays!

Already caught your last stop at Brinda's blog!
I think you will have plenty of requests for those things to fill your schedule.
Looking forward to your new header.
Have a wonderful Christmas, Tara!

Your headers are so much fun. If only we had more hours in the day!

I'm just thinking that I've never changed my header. But I always enjoy yours.

Have a wonderful holiday!

It was fun being on your Pop Travel team. Your plans for 2014 sound exciting too, although they don't seem to include popping down under. Can't wait to see the new banner. Have fun with the design. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

Donna K. Weaver said...

I think you're going to busy! :D

I'm so jealous of SK and Donna! I want a signed copy. Maybe one day we can get our schedules together and do a signing or something together and I can get myself a book!

Elizabeth Seckman said...

Oh and I have thought of changing my header, but how could I ever get anything as perfect as what you made me?

Michelle Wallace said...

You had such an awesome tour! I hope that Pop Travel is selling like hot cakes!!

Wishing you a happy, peaceful and prosperous 2014, Tara!
