Wendy and Everyone!
I humbly thank you all for showing up to create a fun 3-hours.
You can still leave comments and tell your friends to leave comments on this post; I will ask Wendy to look for new comments in the next 4 days.
Your submitting comments today January 5th, 2013 qualified you to enter a contest. Wendy will be giving away a prize — a copy of one of her books (paperback or e-book). On January 9, 2013 I will put your names in a pouch and ask Aster or Sid (Ambril’s guardian angels) to reach it and pull out the winner’s name. The winner will get an email from me.
Also, you can enter Wendy’s End-of-Tour Grand Prize Giveaway of a hand-painted gnome, hand-painted by Wendy herself! Go to http://wendydwalter.com/blog-tour/ and scroll to bottom of that page.

Welcome, Everyone! Thank you for being here! It’s fine if you’re here early
Author Wendy D. Walter will be here 10:00am to 1:00pm PST to answer your questions about her wonderful book Ambril’s Tale, Return of the Dullaith, her spunky protagonist Ambril Derwyn, and her own writing life.
First, please click on the blue title-bar (header) of this post and scroll up and down your screen; you’ll see empty boxes at the bottom of this post. I’ll tell you more about how to fill in boxes later.
Wendy did the illustrations in her book. Above is the gazebo in The Derwyn Garden. I invite you to take a seat in the gazebo and wait for Wendy’s arrival.
Wendy says: “Ambril discovers that the garden is more of an overgrown jungle, as she wanders its rumpled paths seeking clues to her family’s mysterious heritage.”
Wendy D. Walter uses her book Ambril’s Tale, Return of the Dullaith to:
* help young adults transform grief into courage
* inspire readers to step into their unique inherent gifts
* show teens how to overcome obstacles, including battling foul-breath monsters (and bullies in any human form), and find their way home
From 10:00am to 1:00pm PST on January 5th, 2013 you’ll be experiencing live-blog (because Wendy and I will be at our stations).
You can participate before 10:00am or after 1:00pm PST January 5, 2013; Wendy will still answer questions if you get here after January 5th; it’s just that you would miss out on the live-blog-experience.
How to participate (by filling in the boxes below) . . . If you do not see empty boxes . . . remember to click on the blue title bar/header of this post and scroll down the screen. You submit your comments/question; I publish them so that Wendy can see them; she’ll respond by submitting comments and I publish them. And that is how a live-blog appearance works:
In the appropriate boxes, give:
- your full name
- your email address [the box is labeled "Mail"] – you do need to fill in that box
- your website/blog address if you have one [leave that box empty if you do not have a website address]
- in the large box, you ask your question or just welcome Wendy if you do not have any questions; tell Wendy what city you’re in [perhaps you're halfway around the world from San Francisco]
- then click on [Submit Comment] button. [If you do not press that button, it would be as if you've written your question for Wendy on a piece of paper but lost it . . . ]
Every few minutes between 10:00am and 1:00pm PST on January 5, 2013, I will look for incoming comments and publish them so that everyone can see them. How fun is that!
If long minutes have gone by after you clicked on [Submit Comment] and you do not see your comment or Wendy’s response, it could be that you need to refresh your screen. How do you refresh your screen? Either click on the “Reload” icon on your tool bar on your screen OR press your F5 key OR press your Ctrl key and the R key at the same time.
Ambril’s Tale, The Return of the Dullaith has received great 4-5-star reviews.
Fourteen-year-old Ambril Derwyn struggles with the mystery surrounding her father’s death when she moves back to the mysterious town where she was born. When she accidentally uncovers a secret which threatens to destroy her entire family, she continues her quest, against all odds, to clear her father’s name. But will she be able to claim her magic and heal the rifts in her family?
Aster and Sid
A fat blue-eyed squirrel and an old Crow take up the daunting task of watching over Ambril and keeping the monsters at bay.
