Olive and the Great Flood Tour and Prizes

I am so pleased to let you know that my new children's book, Olive and the Great Flood, has been released by Guardian Angel Publishing. It is a rhyming picture book about the sweet dove that is sent out from Noah's ark to discover when there is dry land after the flood. She also has an important mission, to keep the animals calm during the storm and long ride. 

My Virtual  Book Tour will begin on Monday, the 16th, and the tour schedule is listed below. I hope you will visit as many of the blogs as you can. Prizes will be awarded at the conclusion on February 28, randomly drawn from among those commenting. The more different blogs you comment on, the more entries to the drawings you will receive! The prizes are shown below the blog schedule. You might want to bookmark this post to return and check the schedule. Feel free to share on facebook, twitter, etc., and leave a comment here to let me know and receive extra entries for the prizes!

Here is a sneak peak at a couple of the terrific illustrations by Kathleen Bullock. You can see more of her work by visiting her website.

God kept Olive and her mate and all of those inside
safe, protected, high and dry while floating on this ride.
Olive trilled soft peaceful songs to help them sleep at night.
When the ark tossed back and forth, her coos relieved their fright.

Olive and the Great Flood is available from Guardian Angel Publishing, Amazon, or a signed copy from my website.
