Get in on the discussions, connect with new allies (other readers, writers, and social justice advocates), and win a copy of Inheriting the Trade. My virtual book tour gets very busy this week.

The book giveway contest at GoodReads ends this Monday, August 31, the same day we’ll be stopping by Bookzillion. Tuesday and Wednesday will see two more book giveaways at Curled Up With A Good Book and Book Blips. On Thursday Powell’s Books will feature a new essay I’ve written titled “Family Threads: From John Alden and Drew Barrymore to me and to you”.

I hope you’ll take a few minutes this week to visit the websites on the tour, enter a contest, and participate in the conversations. The full tour itinerary can be found here.
