#1 F.A.I.R.I.E.S.: Baptism by Fire Blog Tour!

I can't be more excited by the prospect of reading what my FIRST members thought about my book, F.A.I.R.I.E.S.: Baptism by Fire. The tour starts on 12-05-11 and lasts all day. I have a huge list of bloggers that requested the tour, and I plan to visit them all. I'm going to copy the reviews for you and give you a link to where they posted the tour on their blogs so that you may visit them all. One of the bloggers already has her post up, so I'll start there.

Before I get into all the things that I loved about this story, I would like to share all the things I loved about the actual book. I received a hard copy of this book and when I opened the envelop I was instantly impressed by the superior quality of the publishing. This book has instant visual appeal with the cover art and as soon as I opened the book, I was again impressed with the paper quality, the typesetting and the illustrations (done by the author herself). This book was very professionally done and I can’t rave enough about the quality of the book itself. That is why I prefer actual books over ebooks. You just don’t get the same level of enjoyment that I got from actually holding this fine book in my hands.

Now to the story. When this book first started, it sounded like a “normal” story, which is just fine, but since I was expecting a fantasy, I was a little surprised that this story started out so normal. Well, that didn’t last! Once the story really got going (only took a few pages) and I got to see the author’s imagination coming alive, I was hooked. We all at some point in our lives want to escape into another world and I loved coming along with Mellie on this adventure. Mimi Pearson is a very talented writer with a vivid imagination, not to mention a very good artist. I thoroughly enjoyed coming along for the ride. I’m very happy that I have become such a fan of fantasy books because if I hadn’t, I would not have read F.A.I.R.I.E.S. Baptism by Fire. This is an excellent book and such a fun read. I highly recommend it, and not just to fans of this genre.
