Hello? by Liza Wiemer | Blog Tour | #HelloFrom

Hello from Austin, TX! I'm so thrilled to be apart of the blog tour to celebrate the upcoming release of a dear friend of mine's debut, Hello? by Liza Wiemer. I had the chance to read the book's manuscript, and I have to say, this book is one that can be summed up with two words, YOU MATTER! There's a lot of topics that Liza tackles in this book, but the most important message readers will take away from the book is just that, YOU MATTER.


Let’s bring this world a little closer together! Please join us in saying HELLO! and spread good cheer across the globe.

See Liza’s short video for details:

From April 14th to June 1st, 2015 we would like people to post a picture (it can be an individual, group, something meaningful) with a sign that says Hello From ___________(the city name.)

Use #HelloFrom and the name of your city with a separate #. Post on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and/or Tumblr.

For each person you tag, it will be an extra entry. We want to encourage others to say hello and post their own pictures, tagging others to participate too!

20 lucky people will randomly be selected from all over the world to win prize packages that include items inspired by Hello?. Many were purchased from artists/stores from Door Country, WI, the setting for the novel.

Tricia: A girl struggling to find her way after her beloved grandma’s death.

Brenda: An actress and screenplay writer afraid to confront her past.

Linked and transformed by one phone call, Hello? weaves together these five Wisconsin teens’ stories into a compelling narrative of friendship and family, loss and love, heartbreak and healing, serendipity, and ultimately hope.

During the 1960's, Carole King released an album entitled Tapestry--a masterful weaving of story and song. A half-century later, author Liza Wiemer has mirrored that blend by wonderfully stringing together several forms of narration, one specific to each of her characters. Hello? is a truly remarkable and memorable story communicated in a superbly envisioned way.
Paul Volponi, award-winning author of The Final Four, Game Seven, and Black and White.  

"Brave, beautiful, and wholly original, this story about tantalizing connections and heartbreaking relationships will haunt you, fill you with hope, and leave you smiling."
Martina Boone, author of Compulsion and the Heirs of Watson Island series

“Liza Wiemer’s Hello? is a poignant tale of friendship, love, loss, and resilience. Told from multiple points of view, the richly drawn characters offer a powerful example of how connected we all truly are. This book will compel readers to consider the existence of destiny. Hello? grabbed me from the first page and pulled me right through to the gorgeous ending.”
Kristina McBride, author of One Moment and The Tension of Opposites

"A triumph of writing and humanity...the characters stayed with me long after I read the book."
Huntley Fitzpatrick, author of The Boy Most Likely To, What I Thought Was True, and My Life Next Door
