Oh my goodness, it feels like it’s been a while since I last posted. Probably because it has been. This has been quite a week though, let me tell you!
First of all, I hope all my American friends had a splendid Thanksgiving full of good food and good times spent with family and friends. My Thanksgiving was pretty excellent, although as soon as I got home from our friends’ house, my throat began to hurt and I spent the next three days on the couch with The Crud that’s going around. Thanks, Dad. Fortunately, I didn’t get it nearly as bad as he did.
In much more exciting news, IT IS FINALLY DECEMBER! It’s time for snowflakes and hot chocolate and Christmas lights and movie nights by the fire and all those wonderful winter things! Now of course, once Christmas is over, I won’t be nearly as excited about the cold, but for the next 25 days, bring on the winter chill!
Even though it’s only the first day of December, it’s already turning out to be an incredibly busy month. I’m giving a talk tonight at a local library about NaNoWriMo and what to do after you’ve finished your manuscript. If I can figure out how to post the Power Point presentation here, I will.
I’m also giving another talk at another library NEXT week, but I need to check in and make sure everything is still on schedule for that!
Also… BACKSTAGE WILL BE AVAILABLE IN EXACTLY ONE WEEK! I’m so excited for y’all to read it. I would post the first chapter here, but it contains MAJOR spoilers for the first book, so I’m afraid y’all are just going to have to wait a week! You can, however, enter to win a signed copy of BOTH BOOKS on GoodReads.
Once Backstage is released, I’m going to take some time just to enjoy the holidays, spend time with family and friends. But I’m also going to be investigating a few new publishing platforms as well as a few new projects. Oh, and I’m also going to be catching up on a LOT of reading. My goodness, I am so behind.
Happy December, everyone! It’s the most wonderful time of the year!
(Except for, you know, when it’s warm and sunny).
I hope you feel better. Anyway, I can’t wait for Backstage. Enjoy your Christmas and New Year. I have had a happy and wonderful Thanksgiving with my family. I’ll be posting and reblogging your post for Backstage on December 8. Enjoy your vacation. Take care of yourself. 🙂
