Sophie’s Turn mega-event on The Write Stuff: Brittany Roshelle hosts an interview, review and give-away of Sophie’s Turn this week!

This week, I’m visiting Brittany Roshelle on her blog, The Write Stuff, for another massive event on the virtual book tour for Sophie’s Turn… [drumroll…]

Today (Monday), Brittany is hosting me during an author interview.  Brittany was particularly interested in the logistics of self-publishing a novel and the process of writing.  I talk about why I chose to go the ‘indie’ route, what challenges lay in wait, and how I got my book from ‘tree’ format to ‘e’ format and out there into the blue yonder…. And also, I tell all about what is the best part about being an author!

On Tuesday, Brittany offers her very own views on Sophie’s Turn! Be sure to check out her review on her blog–especially as there is a give-away competition associated with the review.   One lucky blog reader will win a free Kindle copy of Sophie’s Turn!

And now I would like to say a very big Thank You indeed to Brittany for hosting this triple-whammy jam-packed stop on her fabulous blog.  Your support and enthusiasm are both invigorating and invaluable!  🙂

I look forward to seeing y’all on The Write Stuff soon.

Nicky Wells visits Reabookreview for an interview and a give-away!

Good evening! I have been looking forward for weeks now to visiting Reabookreview again… this time, for an interview and a give-away.   Rea reviewed Sophie’s Turn in August and really enjoyed reading it.  She particularly liked the characters and, in her interview questions, set out to find out how they came out to be so down-to-earth and easy to relate to.  Visit Rea’s blog  to find out how I went about creating such likeable characters!

The give-away is for one e-copy of Sophie’s Turn and is open internationally until October 7.  Good luck to all entrants!

Once again, a big thank you to the wonderful Rea for all her support with my virtual book tour for Sophie’s Turn! xx 🙂

Girls Who Love to Read interviews Nicky Wells…find out about Nicky’s very own ‘Thunderbolt and Lightning’ moment!

Today it is my great pleasure head off to Australia… virtually.  I’m stopping by on Girls Who Love to Read for an interview with the lovely Flo.  Flo wanted to know whether I’d ever had the ‘groupie’ experience, or my very own ‘Thunderbolt and Lightning’ moment as described by Rachel to Sophie in Sophie’s darkest hour…  Also find out about my favourite rock bands and which very exciting rockers are following me on Twitter!

Join me at Girls Who Love to Read for the full interview today:  http://girlswholovetoread.com/interview-with-nicky-wells/.

Thanks very much to Flo for her interesting questions and for hosting a stop on my virtual book tour.  The good things don’t end here, though… Flo has also read Sophie’s Turn and will be posting a review (with a give-away) in November, so watch this space!

Nicky Wells visits Kim the Bookworm for an author’s interview… stop by and find out all about my life in 213 words!

Rightly or wrongly, I feel like a celebrity right now with another interview going live on another website!  This time, the wonderful Kim Nash has asked me a variety of interesting questions… She wanted to know about my life, why I write, and where… and also what I’m working on right now.  The answer to that question will be obvious to anyone who’s read Sophie’s Turn:  I’m writing the sequel.  But visit Kim’s blog for a little bit of an idea what might happen in the sequel!

Find the full interview at http://kimthebookworm.blogspot.com/2011_09_01_archive.html.

Please do join me on  Kim the Bookworm and leave me a comment!

Thanks very much, Kim, for this great opportunity and for hosting an interview on your blog as part of my virtual blog tour.  Thank you also for your guidance, advice and encouragement in every other way (you know what I mean!).  🙂

Rock on!

Nicky Wells visits Kritters Ramblings for an interview… come and join us!

Good morning again!

 

Things are continuing apace this week, with another of my interviews taking place–this time by the lovely Kristin at Kritters Ramblings.  Kristin asked me all kinds of interesting questions.  Find out what I ramble on about (and ramble I can!), whether there’s anything of me in the wonderful Sophie, and what part of the writing process I enjoy most…

Join me at http://www.krittersramblings.com/ and feel free to comment and discuss: I’d love to hear your thoughts.

Thanks very much to Kristin for hosting an interview (and yesterday’s review, of course) as part of my virtual book tour.  I have really enjoyed answering the questions and really appreciate stopping by on Kritters Ramblings today.
