Rescue pUpdate, NaNo Prep, and Giveaway!

12:00 AM 0 Comments
On the first Monday of the month, I gab about what's going on with me, my writing, and life in general.

Fall is here! It's funny, but I sort of consider this change in season as the start of my writer year. I tend to start looking at my schedule and planning upcoming book projects. And after my recent annual reader survey, I've got a brand new book in development that I'm really excited about. Stay tuned!

Rescue (p)Update

Tina curled up with blankie and her favorite stuffed bunny.
I haven't posted about our rescue puppy for a while, so I thought I should offer up a photo and pupdate. Tina's doing well. She's 9 months old now, a dachshund/beagle mix. She's rather spoiled by having All The Toys and sleeping with Mommy. (The photo was taken of her on my lap.) And she had her first play date with another dog, my son's new rescue Ellie. (He was inspired after spending time with Tina.) This was a big deal since Ms. Tina came to us as a poorly socialized pup who'd clearly had bad experiences during her time being lost in the streets and at the shelter. After some initial fireworks and posturing, Tina did quite well letting her cousin-dog hang out while my son visited. 

NaNo Prep!

It's that time again when I'm about to launch into November's National Novel Writing Challenge (NaNoWriMo, or NaNo).  This will be my 11th time participating, and I hope my 11th "win." (To win, I have to write 50,000 words in 30 days. The prize: pride in a job well done...and a book for you!)

I've been hard at work prepping this year's book, which will be the first in a planned 3-book paranormal series. And as I've done for some of my previous years I do believe I'll be posting daily updates here on the blog along with my favorite lines written each day. Stay tuned!
