An Adventurous Fellow Traveller Visits The Grape Journal

Bonjour tout le monde, Laura here…I have a very special guest today here at the Grape Journal.  She likes travelling like me, although I wish I shared her knack for traveling through time.

Without further ado, may I please introduce my friend Darby! 


Bisous, Grape Journal Readers!

My name is Darby Christopher, and I’ve never actually been to France. I like reading all about it on Laura’s blog, though — and about the bevy, too. And so just for today, the Grape Journal has been taken over by someone who doesn’t speak French, but who does have an appreciation for the second solitude in Canada. You’ll get a good idea of what I mean if you take a peek into my new story. It’s called FACING FIRE.

FACING FIRE picks up the thread of what happened to me after the magical summer that you may have read about in A WALK THROUGH A WINDOW. Inside both these books you’ll find that while I might not be completely bilingual, I have picked up a small talent for travelling through time…

If you are interested in learning more, you may want to have a peek at my new book. You can find out more about it – and the author – at

Or better still, would you like to win a copy as a prize? If you leave comment on this post, Laura will put your name into a draw to win a free copy of the new book – FACING FIRE. And if you actually link to this post somewhere else [like in another blog, or facebook post or even a tweet] we’ll put your name in for the draw for BOTH of my books. Go for it!

By the way, if you’re into looking for prizes, [especially if you like making videos], check out my blog HERE at Darby Speaks. I have an AMAZING contest going with some totally fantastic prizes. And if you like twitter, you can follow all the latest on the contest and the blog tour and launches @DarbyWalking.

See you there.

And merci for sharing your space with me today, Madame Bradbury!
