Z Day on the SHIFT tour, plus SHADE Reader Playlist

Since Logan had his day yesterday on the blog tour kickoff, today's stop is all about his archrival. Fittingly, the post on "All Things Scottish (especially Zachary)," is being hosted by Scotland's own Splendibird and her blog Mountains of Instead.

I owe Splendibird big time, because she beta-read SHIFT for me to make sure I didn't make any Scottish faux pas. She also taught me two of my new favorite words. You'll have to read the book to find out what they might be. (Hint: pages 136 and 311.)

As you might know, I was just in Scotland a week ago (and then I came back--waaaaaah! *weeps, kicks heels against floor*). You can see some of my photos from the trip on the guest-blog post, as well as read a short excerpt from SHIFT, wherein Zach wears a kilt to the Prom and has a bit of fun with his American classmates.

And of course, you can win the usual blog tour stuff, free books and a special prize. But you're not in it for the stuff, right? You're in it for Scotland!

Deadline is tomorrow morning, so hurry. International entries welcome, of course.


On Monday, Jen at Makeshift Bookmark kindly let me share with the world the SHADE reader playlist. This is a playlist I put together based on songs suggested to me by readers. Who have verra good taste in music, I must say. Go check out the guest post, listen to the music, and enter to win a signed SHADE paperback. Deadline is May 13, and international entries are welcome.

More tomorrow!
