Are You a Blogger? Blog Tour Invite for Shades of Morning



Shades of Morning by Marlo Schalesky

Hi! My name is Kelly Blewett, and I'm Marlo's publicist for her upcoming release Shades of Morning. Marlo and I are delighted to invite you to participate in her blog campaign for Shades of Morning (Multnomah Books).

The blog campaign will run July 12-16. Please post your comments during that week. As a participating blogger, you will receive a complimentary copy of the book and the opportunity to interview Marlo directly.

Please RSVP to this invitation by emailing me at kellyblewett@hotmail.com with the subject line “I’m in for Shades of Morning!” Only the first 15 respondents will be included in the tour.

Here’s the plot in a nutshell: Marnie doesn’t know much about miracles. Mistakes maybe. Accidents, too. And monstrous mess-ups. She knows a lot about those. But miracles? Those are for other people. But in Shades of Morning (Multnomah Books, on shelves June 15, 2010), Marnie is about to discover that God can turn a past full of regrets into a beautiful future.

Happy blogging!
Kelly Blewett, Publicist

Tour Information

Book: Shades of Morning

Dates: July 12-16, 2010

Summary: Marnie Wittier has life just where she wants it. Quiet. Peaceful. No drama. A long way away from her past. In the privacy of her home, she fills a box with slips of paper, scribbled with her regrets, sins, and sorrows. But that’s nobody else’s business. Her bookstore/coffee shop patrons, her employees, her friends from church—they all think she’s the very model of compassion and kindness. Then Marnie’s past creeps into her present when her estranged sister dies and makes Marnie guardian of her fifteen-year-old son—a boy Marnie never knew existed.

And when Emmit arrives, she discovers he has Down syndrome—and that she’s woefully unprepared to care for him. What’s worse, she has to deal with Taylor Cole, her sister’s attorney, a man Marnie once loved—and abandoned. As Emmit (and Taylor) work their way into her heart, Marnie begins to heal. But when pieces of her dismal past surface again, she must at last face the scripts of paper in her box, all the regrets and sorrows. Can she do it? Or will she run again?
