Election Day

Just when everyone thought election day would never come – it’s here.

Things are coming together for our Virtual Book Tour this month.

I am a hisotry buff and always reflect back on our history. Not that I want to get too political on a writer and reader blog, but this truly is an election for the ages. We’ve broken past barriers with women as major players in the presidential election. We’ve finally crossed racial lines and as of now, it looks like we’re looking at our first black President. I hope to draw on this in my writing.

NaNoWriMo and other things

I’m signed up for NaNoWriMo this year. With everything else I’m working on it may be interesting to try and make some progress on that as well. For those of you who are readers and not writers, NaNoWriMo is National Novel Writing Month. It takes place each November. People sign up from all over the world and write the first draft of a 50,000 word novel. That comes out to about 1700 words per day if you write every day. It’s a great way to get one done and ready for editing and revisions to submit to a publisher or agent.

I’m also in a group of 29+ writers who are organizing a virtual book tour on our blogs to begin November 15th. These are fun to follow you learn about new writers and new books and we help each other promote everyone’s books. Cool huh? I think so.

I’m 50% finished with the rewrite of my novel Escape, and plan to get it to my publisher by the end of this month.
