Meet Suzanne Lieurance - Children's author extraordinaire

I had the pleasure of being on Suzanne's blog talk radio show last year about my series. Now, I get to host her this week for the Virtual Book Tour Yahoo! forum I belong to. Let me introduce Suzanne to you by presenting her bio and Tuesday, I'll introduce her newest release - The Locket. Later this week, Suzanne will do a guest posting about her writing workshops.

Hope you enjoy meeting this wonderful children's writer.

Elysabeth, this post is a good introduction to Suzanne. I'll be checking back to learn more about her and her book.

What can I say. I absolutely love wht Suzanne has to offer a writer. Although I'm one of those guilty parties who might read but not comment all the time, I love her website.

Great job, E.

Vivian, I can't wait to share more about Suzanne and her newest release, The Locket. If you've not had an opportunity to do an interview with her on blogtalkradio - Book Bites for Kids, I suggest you try to get on her schedule. The interviews are fun.

Lea, I know what you mean - there are so many blogs and content out there that it is hard to visit them all let alone leave comments. Very time consuming. Thanks for stopping by today.

Maybe Suzanne will pop in tomorrow and leave some comments too. See you all in the postings - E :)

Suzanne has a wealth of knowledge to offer writers. I'm taking a writing course with her right now. Her teleseminars are packed full of great tips that will help you become a better writer. Her business courses can help anyone increase their business. Take the time to look at what she has to offer.

I can't wait to hear more about her latest book, "The Locket."

I wish I had a copy of it to do a review this week, but maybe later. Oh - I hadn't even checked to see if my library has it - what was I thinking - lol. I guess I can do a review by the end of the week. Kathy, thanks for letting us know some about what Suzanne has to offer. - E :)
