June Blog Tour of Epic Proportions!!!!

The June Blog Tour of Epic Proportions started a while back, when I got the idea of sending blog tour check lists to book bloggers and letting them pick which book or books interested them the most to write about. This evolved into a month long celebration of three of our new titles, The Brain Full of Holes, The Everlasting Now, and Gaff. Below you can find a list of current posts, previous posts, and upcoming posts. Check them out, support our books and your fellow book bloggers and let us know what you think of it all!



June Blog Tour Stops:
"This book is a wonderful description of 1930s life in the South."

"The Brain strikes again in this wacky but wonderful tale that will have you reaching books end in record time...you won't want to put it down."


  • The wonderful Indiependent Books reviewed The Everlasting Now on their store blog. If you haven't checked out this online retailer, you should!
"From the very beginning you are drawn into this book."
  • Galleysmith came out in full force with a review and giveaway for The Brain Full of Holes.
"...one hell of an enjoyable mystery. A mystery that is neither predictable nor too twisty that middle graders will have difficulty following."
"This is a highly recommended book for upper elementary/middle school kids to get a glimpse at an important subject that is not often talked about. In the process they will meet some indelible characters and learn more about the Hawaiian culture and language."

"...a fun and zany mystery, good humor, and fast action."

  • Jenn over at Jenn's Bookshelves reviews The Brain Full of Holes. If you haven't seen how great her new blog look is, I suggest you head over there right now... and she's a wonderful reviewer.
"The wit and humor his main characters exude will leave the reader crying with laughter."
"...a good historical read. The prose of a sleepy Southern town, alive with rich characters, is enjoyable, and offers a happy note even in a time of a downtrodden nation."





  • One of my favorite independent online book stores, {Indie}-pendent Books, invited Martin Chatterton to do a guest post about how his new book, The Brain Full of Holes, came about. Sometimes the real story is weirder than fiction.

"It all started with the highly unexpected humpback whale attack. Not  to mention the killer koalas, the organized lorikeet poop-strafing, and the SUV-stealing possums. For sure, there are strange things afoot in Sheldon McGlone's sleepy little town of Farrago Bay"





  • Martin Chatteron spends some time at the Rasco from RIF blog talking about what it is like writing for boys. Carol Rasco is the CEO of Reading is Fundamental, America's oldest and largest nonprofit children's and family literacy organization. You really want to check out her blog. *Carol is also on twitter.

  • April at Cafe of Dreams interviews Martin Chatterton, author of The Brain Full of Holes. Check it out to see what Martin has to say about two-headed butlers, soccer, and swiss cheese! *Also, follow April on twitter!

  • Scott is a librarian at the Stillwater Public Library in Oklahoma and writes a blog about books at The Scott Freeman Blog. You can read his review of The Brain Full of Holes here.
"This book is a fun read and highly recommended for pre-teens and younger teens as well. For that matter, this adult looks forward to reading more exploits from Sheldon and The Brain."
