December 2008 Virtual Book Tour Stops



I am touring with Pump Up Your Book Promotion between
December 1 ~ December 23



I hope you'll stop by each of the stops listed below. I'll be updating the links everyday and adding the archived links to the blogs here.




Leave a note, question, or comment on the tour stops and you could win a FREE virtual book tour from Pump Up Your Book Promotion if you're a published author with a recent release or a $50 Amazon gift certificate if you are not published!




And while I have your attention! If you have a copy of either of my books, "Silenced Cry," the "The Devil Can Wait" or both, send me a picture of yourself with the book(s) in hand for the upcoming FAN PAGE on my website, http://www.martastephens-author.com/.

The pics can be serious, goofy, or anything in between.

As you can see, I'm thinking life is too short to not have fun. So Sam Harper Fans, send those wacky pictures to me in jpg format to ma50step@yahoo.com. Sam and I would love to meet you!

So where am I today and where have I been? Here:
