Blog Tour Sign-up for Quintana of Charyn

We here at 132 Minutes would love to host a Quintana of Charyn blog tour! Of course, the only way this will work out is if there are other blogs participating in the tour. So, we're hoping there is some interest from fellow Melina Marchetta/Lumatere Chronicles fans and bloggers.

Not sure what a book blog tour is? Basically, a number of blogs have posts scheduled during a particular date or time-frame where they talk about a certain book. A list of all the blogs participating will be made so that readers can find the posts.

In order to participate in this blog tour, you must have a blog (or a blog you can guest post** at) and be a fan of the Lumatere Chronicles. We know not everyone will be able to obtain a copy of Quintana of Charyn from Australia or read an early copy from the US, but whatever the reason, don't worry! We're not going to make reading Quintana of Charyn a requirement to participate in the tour. Just be a fan of the series!

Your post should be about Quintana of Charyn or the Lumatere Chronicles. Some examples: a review of QoC or the series, music that reminds you of the series, your dream cast... Anything! The point is to support the series and have fun while doing it.

**Guest posting on someone's blog is fine as long as that blogger knows and you keep them up-to-date about the schedule, which will be decided later. 

Fill out the form below if you would like to participate. Click here to access the direct link to the form. Sign-ups will most likely be open for awhile (as long as it's necessary, really). Edit: Signing up guarantees you a spot on the tour. No one will be left out!

Have any thoughts / questions / suggestions? Be sure to leave a comment on this post. Thanks! :)
