Tomorrow is a big day, at least in my world. It’s the kick-off of my 15-day blog tour for my newest book from Ave Maria Press: Cravings: A Catholic Wrestles with Food, Self-Image, and God. Every day of the tour I’ll visit a different blog. Some days blogs will run reviews, other days excerpts, Q&A interviews, podcasts, and more. Each stop will give readers a chance to win a copy of my book and a chance to win a $100 gift card from Williams-Sonoma.
