Smorgasbord Blogger Daily – Monday 17th May 2021 – #Author Support Gwen Plano with C.S. Boyack, #Podcast Rebecca Budd with D.Wallace Peach, #BookDrive Dawn Doig

A small selection of posts I have enjoyed over the last few days and I hope you will head over to enjoy in full.

One of the key elements of the writing community we belong to is the support offered so generously to other authors. The first post today is from Gwen Plano with a book launch post by C.S. Boyack for his new release.

Boyack is on tour with LUNAR BOOGIE!  

Hello, blog friends!

I’m excited to welcome C.S. Boyack to this site today. Most of you know and appreciate Craig through his books. He’s a prolific writer and amazing storyteller. His latest publication, Lunar Boogie, just became available, and Craig’s going to tell us about it. We’re in for a ride, because the entire series is laced with hilarious and unforgetable scenes.

C.S. Boyack has a wonderful way of taking reality and masking it in a fantasy. Through laughter and quirkiness, he opens our eyes to possibility. That’s no small achievement.

Let’s see what Craig has to say!

I really appreciate you loaning me your space today, Gwen. My door is always open when you need it.

Today, I’m out promoting my newest book, Lunar Boogie. This one is part of The Hat Series, and I’ll let the cover and blurb do their jobs down below.

And another generous host is Rebecca Budd who interviews authors for her podcast Tea, Toast & Trivia and this week Diana Wallace Peach shares a wonderful reading from the first book in the amazing Unraveling the Veil trilogy.. Liars and Thieves.

Season 3 Episode 19: D Wallace Peach Reading Liars & Thieves, Unravelling the Veil Book One

Bookstores, libraries, and coffee shops are great places for book readings. There is something extraordinary about hearing the voice of an author reading their stories. Their voice and intonation are nuanced by the many hours of effort putting pen to paper. They created the characters, structured the plot, and lived every twist and turn that creates bumps in the storyline.

Living in the reality of Covid-19, book readings at public libraries and bookstores have been curtailed. We are learning to embrace technology in new ways. Welcome to the podcast series, “Authors Reading their Books”, which will recreate the reading spaces in a virtual venue. I invite you to put the kettle on and join the conversation on Tea Toast & Trivia. I am your host, Rebecca Budd, and I am looking forward to sharing this moment with you.

I am thrilled to introduce D Wallace Peach who has graciously agreed to be our guest author reading from her novel, “Liars & Thieves, Unravelling the Veil Book One” is available on Amazon. I am looking forward to meeting up with Diana and entering a world of fantasy and imagination. I am ready for the adventure! Are you?

And the final note today is from children’s author Dawn Doig who is requesting help with a charity drive for a very important cause.

Hi everyone. I am trying to sell my books to purchase a communication device for an individual with brain injury. The proceeds from each book sale go 100% toward the device. I am still a long way from raising the necessary funds. For any of you reading this in the US, my books are on the wish list for Hindi’s Libraries. They are doing a book drive for the Dell Children’s Medical Center.

If you buy one of my books and donate it to Hindi’s, they are supporting two wonderful causes with one book. I have made a quick link to my books on the Hindi wish list on Amazon so that you don’t have to scroll and try to find them:

Universal Hindi Wish List on Amazon:

Note: The books are all available in paperback and hardcover. If you click on the link, you will be taken to the book page and can select the format of your choice


Thanks for dropping in and I hope you will head over to read the posts in full and if possible help with the Hindi book drive… thanks Sally
