Dream Boy Blog Tour: The Launch

We laughed. We yelled. We teased. We listened to each other sound off about flooded basements and tricky freelance assignments and sick cats and crazy people. We tramped around the woods and solved a few (but by no means all) of the problems that come along with child rearing. And somehow, in between all of that, my friend Mary Crockett and I wrote a book.


Dream Boy comes out July 1st from Sourcebooks, and in the days leading up to that (and the days following) we have a group of fabulous bloggers who are hosting us as part of our Launch Tour. We hope you will visit them. The sites will feature reviews, guest posts (I finally get to talk about my thwarted career as a rock star), and give-aways. So now, without further ado:
