-- Folsom, USA – Walker Author Tours, a company that brings new authors to the attention of the reading public through online, virtual book tours, is pleased to announce the two-week book blog tour for Camille Matthews’s second Quincy novel, Quincy Moves to the Desert. This book tour will include tour stops at a variety of book blogs on the Internet where readers may read reviews, author interviews, and ask questions of the author as well as a webcast radio spot with a live interview with Ms. Matthews.
The Quincy Moves to the Desert book tour will run June 18 through 29, 2012. This book, aimed at kindergarten through fourth grade readers, is the first sequel to 2009’s Quincy Finds a New Home.
“I have fallen in love with this new series. It's not just the beautiful, detailed oil paintings or the stories that draw me in and make me want to read more about Quincy, it's the fact that kiddos who are not quite ready for chapter books can really sink their teeth into this series. Especially older kiddos, a bit delayed in reading who can easily be turned off by picture books that are too juvenile for them. The Quincy series will engage and encourage a love of reading and bring children up to the next reading level, bridging the gap between picture books and chapter books in an intelligent way.” – Biblio Reads
From Quincy Moves to the Desert:
“Quincy had never been on a big trip. He had never gone far away or seen a desert. He asked Beau, “Are there horses in the desert?” Beau laughed. “Horses are everywhere,”
he said. Then Quincy asked, “Why do we need to go far away?” Beau said, “The desert is in the West. The West has wide open spaces and trails as far as you can see.”
