Meet Jennifer Walker, author of “Bubba to the Rescue”

So, Jennifer Walker decided to do a virtual book tour to promote Book Two of the Green Meadow Series, called "Bubba to the Rescue." I was thrilled to be asked to host one of her stops here on my little blog. A virtual book tour is just like a real life book tour; except it saves you some actual walking! You can follow the book tour around from blog to blog, just by clicking your mouse. Pretty cool huh?

The idea is to read the book and post a review on your blog, but I tend to be a little different at times, so first I want to talk about why you or your child should read books written by Jennifer Walker. I got to know Jennifer because we are both Twin Trinity Media authors. She helped me edit my short story before it was published. Granted, our only interaction has been through email and facebook, but I know if distance allowed, we would be great “in real life” friends.

Jennifer is a likable, helpful, talented person. So, what’s that got to do with her books, you ask? Don’t you have a favorite author that you love to read? As soon as anything new comes out that they wrote you want to run right out and grab it, right? Read just one of Jennifer Walker’s books and you’ll be hooked and want to read anything and everything she writes. Let me tell you why.

"Bubba Goes National" and "Bubba to the Rescue" are centered on a girl and her love of horses. Yes, it is fiction, but Jennifer is also an avid horsewoman. Her passion and knowledge shines through in these books. It’s almost like she is sitting right there beside you telling you about her own adventures with the horses she loves. From the moment she introduces you to Leslie, the young 13 year old, in "Bubba Goes National", you’ll be hooked and will want to follow Leslie all around Green Meadow Stables as she works to pay for her riding lessons.

You’ll follow Leslie right into book two, “Bubba to the Rescue,” and nearly panic with fear as you find her and her boyfriend fighting a fire to save the stables and horses that she loves. You’ll worry when a young horse follows them through the flames, and ask the same question Leslie did, “Where did he come from?” Where did “Spark” come from? Does Leslie get to keep him, does she find his owner? Well, you see…..(You didn’t think I was going to tell you did you?)

Jennifer Walker will introduce you to Leslie, but she will become your friend as you continue reading, and that’s because of the way Jennifer writes. She pulls you right in and you can’t help but become part of the story. Jennifer will definitely become the author you want your young teen to read!

Yes, the Green Meadows Series is written for children and teens, but I enjoyed them thoroughly and can’t wait to have my two granddaughters read them, because I know they will enjoy them too. Many of us enjoyed the Little House on the Prairie Series because Laura Ingalls Wilder wrote them with such knowledge and passion. You are going to find that same knowledge and passion in "Bubba Goes National" and "Bubba to the Rescue." You really need to order them, curl up with your daughter, granddaughter, niece, etc. and start reading!

Here is all the information you need to keep up with Jennifer and to order her books:

Stop back by after you have read one of Jennifer Walker's books and let me know how you liked them. I know you are going to enjoy them and Jennifer will soon be one of your and your teen's favorite authors. Leave a comment and let Jennifer know you stopped by. She will be stopping in sometime today.

Virtual Book Tour of "Bubba to the Rescue" Coming Soon!

Jennifer Walker, the author of Bubba to the Rescue and I are both published at Twin Trinity Media. I was thrilled when Jennifer, a very talented author, actually helped edit my short story. When she began talking about setting up a virtual tour for her book, I knew I wanted her to visit my Weaving Words Writer's Gallery!

So, you might be asking, what is a virtual book tour? Well, it is much like getting to see the book and meeting the author in a brick and mortar bookstore, but it is done on line. Isn't that great? No driving or fighting mobs to have a sneak peek at a great book.

Twin Trinity Media has the book Bubba to the Rescue on it's way to me now. I hope my postman doesn't nab it for his own reading pleasure! (Just kidding, let's not offend my postman, he does bring my bills!) Anyway, I will read the book in it's entirety and then I will post a review of what I thought of the book, on the day of Jennifer Walker's virtual tour.

All you have to do is come visit my blog that day, read what I have to say, leave comments, see what other people had to say...and hopefully buy your own copy of Bubba to the Rescue. Isn't the Internet great?

My tour date for Bubba to the Rescue is March 14, 2012. Mark your calendar to grab a cup of coffee and stop in to meet Jennifer walker and hear what we are all saying about her book. Jennifer loves my enthusiasm, and has even told me I was funny, so the tour is bound to be a lot of fun for all of us!

If you can't wait for the virtual tour, you can click here -> Twin Trinity Media and check it out now, but I sure hope you will join us for the fun on March 14th. Stop in and see me again, you never know what book I might be reviewing next! Hey, I might even tell you about one I am working on....
