In most blog tours, a single author appears on a variety of blogs, moving around the Internet and allowing the readers of those blogs get to know the author.

In the Merry-Go-Round Blog Tour, the authors stay on their blogs and it's you, the reader, who takes the tour.

Each month, our participating authors from around the world agree to blog on a single topic throughout the month. By following the links in each month's post, you'll discover a whole bunch of new authors in a variety of genres, levels of experience, and styles of writing.

We hope you enjoy the trip and come back each month for a new spin around the globe.

What About Lily? Where I Got My Latest Idea

When I read, especially when I read books I love over and over, I become increasingly interested in the stories of the characters who've been mentioned only once or twice but whose lives are radically changed by the protagonist's actions.

To kick of this month's tour with the topic of Where I got my latest idea, I ask how Alice's playing the game in Alice's Adventures Through the Looking Glass affected the pawn she replaced, the Princess Lily - and in answering my question I discovered I had a book waiting to get written.

Check it out over on my blog AlexWorld.
