I don't think you guys know how much I really love this blog. I don't even think I really knew until right now.
I sent an email to the Info section of the tour site just before midnight, then tossed and turned over it for most of the night. I woke up and checked my email. I came to work and checked my email again. I hit Twitter, knowing my blogging buddies would make me feel better, and they did. Then I posted here and got even more support. You guys are awesome.
So I need to tell you now that the issue is being resolved. The woman who launched the tour company has graciously agreed to change the name. Which she didn't have to do... which was part of why I was so freaked out. She didn't have to do it. In fact, it puts her out quite a bit to change her name, her graphics and the things affiliated with her tour business. But she is doing it, because I asked her to.
I don't know what the new name of the book tour company will be, but I hope that my drama doesn't stop you from working with her, if you were already so inclined. Starting and running your own business is tough enough. I would never want to interfere with someone's livelihood, especially someone who is working to accommodate me. I wish her nothing but success and I truly apologize if I caused her or her business any harm.
Anyway, this whole experience has really hit home for me what this blog --and all of you-- mean to me. Thank you for visiting, posting, tweeting and chatting with me every day. Thank you for being people with whom I can share my love of books and sexy men. Thank you for supporting Red Hot Books. I love you.
