Weekend Book Buzz

He is risen indeed! Alleluia! Alleluia!

It may not be quite Sunday where you are, but it’s coming! So happy and blessed Resurrection Day to you all!

Here’s a quick recap of what’s happened here at Fiction Aficionado over the last week:

~ Blog Tours ~

This first item today isn’t so much a blog tour as a blog event. Christian Shelf-Esteem is celebrating National Park Week by inviting nine authors to chat about a national park that has made its way into one (or more) of their novels. It starts today, so click on the graphic to go to the blog!

And now for the tours underway with Celebrate Lit. As always, you can click on the graphic to be taken to the home page for each tour, where you’ll find the schedule for the blog tour, giveaways, and more. The blog tours for Finding Hope in Savannah and Just The Way You Are wrap up this week, while Surrendered will continue through to next week:
