Review Schedule

Despite my best efforts to save myself the stress of scheduled reviews, I have been unable to say no to them!  I seriously need an intervention.  Until then, here's my updated schedule.  Please note:  If you scheduled a tour stop with me and you do not see it listed below, that means I'm a complete airhead and I forgot to write it down.  Please contact me ASAP so I can fix the error.  Thanks!

  1. I'm happy you can't say no :-) and happy to be on your review list!

  2. Dear Susan,
    (What part of AZ are you from? My son is a seminary principal in Queen Creek.)
    As busy as you are, I hope you can find time for my Nativity booklet.
    As the Christmas season approaches, most of us think of the birth of baby Jesus, and we try to make it more meaningful for us and our families. Here’s how you can help your readers with this. Would you please be willing to review this 26 page booklet from Cedar Fort Publishing about the Nativity and post it on your blog during our blog tour, October 17-24th? If so, please tell us your choice of days. THANKS!
    We’ll send you a complimentary copy. We’ll also furnish a “giveaway copy” for your readers. (Please give us your shipping address. ) People may purchase this booklet online at Amazon or Barnes & Noble, plus at bookstores. Its cost is only $4.99.
    A New Dramatization of The Nativity Pageant

    Would you rather read the nativity story or be a part of it? Using simple stage directions, easy-to-find props, two narrators, and a script that’s straight from the scriptures, this book helps you act out the familiar story of the first Christmas for your church, family, or friends. Start a new tradition this season with a simple pageant you’ll look forward to performing year after year.

    Brief Summary
    The Nativity Pageant starts with Angel Gabriel visiting Mary and ends with Joseph following the angel’s warning and taking his little family to Egypt, where Jesus will be safe. It takes about 15 minutes to perform, plus it has the lyrics to four traditional Christmas hymns, if people wish to sing them.

    Brief Endorsements of The Nativity Pageant

    Larry M. Gibson. Former member of the LDS Young Men General Presidency
    “Neil’s respect for the original story, combined with his vast drama experience, will make this a valuable part of your church’s or family’s Christmas traditions.”

    “Easy to perform and impactful in its simplicity and beauty.”
