Blog Tour: The Unlikely Gift of Treasure Blume

The Unlikely Gift of Treasure Blumeis author Lisa Rumsey Harris’ first book.

Her family’s curse has kept Treasure hidden”¦until now.

TreasureBlume is a pear-shaped first grade teacher with an awkward tendency to blurt out whatevershe’s thinking. And she has a family curse (or gift, depending on who youtalk to); everyone who meets her (over puberty but under Alzheimer¹s)initially dislikes her.

The book will be available onNetGalleyon October 1st. If you are interested in joining the blog tour, please leave a comment with the date you’d like to post or contact me viaemail.

Here is a brief description of the book:

With her love of sweaters, goofy hair, and awkward manners””not to mention her family curse””Treasure Blume knows love is not in her future. That is, until she matches wits with Dennis Cameron, a divorced chef with a six-year-old daughter. Full of mischief, mayhem, and laugh-out-loud humor, this is an unlikely love story you’ll want to read over and over again!

      Lexie, if you email your mailing address to Scott Thormaehlen, He’ll send you the book. His email is

      Thanks so much!

    Your Oct. 12th anytime after 4:00 p.m. would be best for me. (That will be my Saturday morning after 7:00 a.m.)

    I could take the 15th. I would also like a hard copy if available.

      Sorry, I have another one for you that day. I read my calendar wrong. How about the 22nd, unless you want me to double book you?

    I haven’t been able to find the book on NetGalley (hopefully you got my email last week). If you can get a copy to me right away, I can take the 18th.

  • October 10, 2012 at 2:22 pm

    The book is now available on Net Galley. I apologize for the delay.

    Andrea (and everyone else),

    The 18th sounds great.

    We are having some issues with NetGalley right now. Scott is working hard to resolve the issue and get access as soon as possible. In the meantime, he’s emailing a watermarked PDF to you so you have access to the book.

    We’re going to extend the tour into November because of these issues, if that works better for you.
    Thanks so much!

    It has been a few months since being part of a tour & this one looks like the ideal one to do.
    I’d like to do November 1st.

      Sara, that sounds great! We’ll put you on the schedule.

    I am not part of the tour…
    But I wanted you to know that I just finished the book and posted a review on my blog today (Oct 27, 2012).

    What a wonderful book…
    Wish I would have signed up to be part of the official tour..

      Thanks so much for the review. I’m so glad you enjoyed it!

      You can still be part of the tour, if you’d like. I can do an interview, or a guest post, or whatever you would like. And I’ll put your information on the calendar so that the link to your blog shows up.

        You are so sweet!
        I appreciate you putting me on the tour calendar…it really is a good book!
        I would LOVE to do an author bio and a Ten’s List if that works for you.

        You can e-mail me the bio and ten uncommon things known about you.
        Let me know what day you want me to post this…

        I am excited for this opportunity!

        • November 1, 2012 at 5:16 pm


          No problem. I’ll get that info to you as fast as I can.
