Where in The World Has Kourtney Been?


Over the past week, I started my blog hopping to promote The Six Train to Wisconsin!

So far, it’s been a blast.

I stopped by the awesome Peter Andrews’ How to Write Fast Blog on 5/10/13 to talk about my inspiration for Six Train and share a few productivity tips.

This Monday, the fabulous Carrie Rubinย of The Writer’s Transition shared her rib-tickling take on Grandma H as a mindreader.

And yesterday, the amazing Fel Wetzig of The Peasants Revoltย picked my brain about what type of drink I am, my writing process, and why I use a pen name for my YA.

Thank you to Pete and Fel for asking cool interview questions and giving me a chance to showcase my book. Thank you to Carrie for featuring my book and inviting readers into the world of Grandma H. ๐Ÿ™‚

To showcase the generous and talented bloggers who are hosting me, I am going to dedicate one post a week to listing where I’ve been. I hope you’ll check out a few of them and maybe find a few new blogs to follow.


This week I received my first official book review from Sandra Schwayder Sanchez of BookPleasures.com! Thank you Sandra!

And a big thank you to the blog buddies and readers have taken the time to post ย Amazon reviews! Thank you thank you thank you to EllaDee, Carrie, Catherine, Jen, Robin, and Marilyn!


Yesterday, I kicked off Six Train’s Biggest Fan Giveaway to thank all my supporters and readers! ย Taylor Swift is one of my favorite artists, so I’m giving away two tickets to her 7/6 concert in Pittsburgh, PA. You can find out more details and enter the giveaway here:ย http://www.facebook.com/kourtneyheintzwriter/app_228910107186452

    Even though a lot of your recent promotion is online, I bet you’re still not getting much sleep! It seems there is always ‘one more thing to do’ the first few weeks after a book’s release. But you’re navigating the marketing world beautifully! (I’m taking notes…) Thank you for the mention and the pingback to my blog! Always appreciated. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Just clicked to order a copy :-).

  5. You’re rocking the book-o-sphere! It’s an exciting time, right? Congrats on your ongoing success.

    It looks like I’m definitely registering for Killer Nashville, by the way. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • LOL. Trying. Some days feel better than others. Very exciting and unexpected. I never know what is happening next. Awesome. I signed up and booked my hotel room. Are you coming in for the wine tasting Thursday night? It’s my favorite mystery conference. The people who run it are so friendly and generous. I made two lasting friendships there back in 2010.

    I would be exhausted if I were in your position! ๐Ÿ™‚ Can’t wait until June 1st when you’re visiting with me on my blog!

    • JM, I’m fraying a bit around the edges. Thank goodness I had my hair salon trip today. I needed to just chat with people and get away from my desk. And the sky didn’t fall in. LOL. I think I’m going to try to work 6 days a week instead of seven. What a novel idea. ๐Ÿ˜‰ I’m so excited for the June 1 post. I loved your questions they were so fun to reply to. ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. Whew – talk about living in the middle of a whirlwind! Try to sneak in some downtime – and don’t stress too much – it’s a long term thing!

    • Thanks Karen. :)I am so happy to have so much going on, but it’s hard to keep up at this pace. I do need to add more me time to each day. And have one day off a week. Maybe Sunday. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  8. EllaDee says:

    I checked out each of the links, and wow… I have to admit though Carrie’s take on Grandma H. stole the show ๐Ÿ™‚
    It will be a while before your feet touch the ground and life feels anyhting like normal…but that’s not such a bad thing… enjoy ๐Ÿ™‚

  9. 4amWriter says:

    Gosh, you are a busy gal. But so thorough and organized! I am really impressed.

    I received your email, but I haven’t had a chance to look at it. I will make some time this weekend and get back to you. I’m sure it’s great, and I cannot wait to have you visiting me at 4 am. It’ll be super early, what do you like to drink? I’ll make sure I have it waiting for you. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • Thanks! There’s been a few mistakes along the way. ๐Ÿ™‚ But overall, the spreadsheets are keeping me on target. ๐Ÿ˜‰

      No worries. I just wanted to get it back to you ahead of time so you wouldn’t be time pressed on it. ๐Ÿ™‚ Aw, I will need a nice splash of tequila in my hot chocolate at that time of day. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  10. Just finished the book Kourtney and loved it – couldn’t put it down. Liked the different perspectives of the two characters and found it intriguing and suspenseful. I’ve posted a review on the UK version of Amazon.
