Conclusion of The Case of the Crafty Christmas Crooks Blog Tour!

The Case of the Crafty Christmas Crooks blog tour was a special one for me, because it included so many things I love: cats, mysteries (including murder mystery parties!), and a book I thoroughly enjoyed editing! I hope you had just as much fun following the tour, learning more about this sweet book, its awesome author and heroes, and what readers have to say about it.

Want more? Be sure to check out Buckley & Bogey's website, and don't forget that you can get both books on Kindle for less than $10! (Book 1: The Case of the Cat Show Princess; Book 2: The Case of the Crafty Christmas Crooks)


We have tons of winners from this blog tour, thanks to Cindy Vincent's generosity! We'll start with the winners from the Pinterest contests:

Pin the Cover Contest
Grace Thorson won Lies, Spies and Allies from Mysteries by Vincent!

Pin Your Cute Cat Pic Contest

Michelle Tuller won her choice of Diamonds Are For Eva or Lies, Spies and Allies from Mysteries by Vincent, for having the most votes for her cute cat pic! (That's Max above.)

Cindy and I would like to thank the following bloggers for their participation in the tour: 
The tour wouldn't have gone anywhere without them, and we appreciate their hard work and enthusiasm. Be sure to click the links above if you missed any of their stops - there are some neat reviews and interviews in there!

I would like to say "Thank you, thank you, thank you!" to everyone who participated in this blog tour. I've had such a great time, and this turned into so much more than I ever would have expected. (Silly me, here I thought I was just going to promote Buckley and Bogey's new book . . .) Sure, we promoted the book, but I also made a bunch of new friends along the way, found out about some great blogs, and well, just had a lot of fun! This blog tour has sort of been like a good book in itself -- I've enjoyed every chapter and I'm actually kind of sad (and sniffling a little) that it's over.

Kara and Sandra, thanks so much for your comments here today! And Amber, my hat's off to you! You're a girl who thinks on your feet and makes things happen. I'll be looking to you to edit my next Buckley and Bogey book, and for another blog tour!

I hope to keep in touch with so many of you that I've met the last few weeks. I wish everyone the very best in all their endeavors. Here's hoping that 2014 turns out to be one of our best years yet.

Have a very Merry Christmas! Hope you enjoy the blessings of your life now and throughout the year!

Holy Catnip, Amber!! What a great blog tour this turned out to be! Thanks for doing such a great job -- Bogey says you're aces in his book! And congratulations to Max and Boo. We could sure use a couple of guys like you at the Buckley and Bogey Cat Detective Agency. I'm giving a "paws up" to everyone who participated in this tour. Thanks for all the wonderful reviews. Glad to know so many people out there like cats. I got so inspired that I even started writing my next book. Holy Mackerel!

I hope everyone has a really wonderful Christmas. We sure are! When Bogey said that Christmas was the best, well, he wasn't kidding.

Merry Christmas!

Yay!! I'll be curious to hear how your murder mystery party turns out when you host it... You'll have to take pics! ;)

I'm so happy you enjoyed the tour - thank you so much for following it! And how wonderful that you found the book(s) to be great Christmas gifts for the children in your family. :)

Merry Christmas to you, too, my friend!

Merry Christmas and happy reading to you, as well!

What a lovely and encouraging comment! I couldn't ask for a better result for the blog tour - to know you had fun with it, met some new friends, and all while spreading the word about your awesome book! :)

I'm honored you would want to hire me again, and I'm looking forward to another Buckley & Bogey Caper! Thank you so much for the kind words, as well!

I'm looking forward to all that 2014 has to bring. So glad that we met in 2013! Here's to continued friendships in the new year. :)

Blessings and a Merry Christmas to you and yours!

I'm thrilled you enjoyed your tour, and thank you (and Bogey!) for the encouraging words! It was a pleasure spreading the word about your book, and I'm excited to know you're working on the third. :) Yay!!

Merry Christmas to you and your family (feline & human)!
