Good afternoon my friends, and happy December! Wow, I cannot believe we are here already, almost at the end of another year. Actually, I say that every year. It’s bizarre, how time ebbs and flows… Well, enough pondering. I am buzzing from the achievement of finally completing #NaNoWriMo2014, and ahead of schedule. I did it! My word count came in at 50,197 when I validated my novel. It is not finished. I still have to write the end sequence. But that doesn’t matter. After the disappointment of giving up NaNoWriMo in 2013, I feel that I am back on track and raring to go. Let’s get some more novels published!
And, while I am on the subject of books (it’s a recurring theme with me), I would like to invite you to two events taking place next week. The first is called #ReadTuesday. It is the antidote to all of the crazy hype over #BlackFriday and #CyberMonday, and is an all-day event which is very simple: We ask that you consider buying books as gifts from independent authors and small publishing houses. We need your support! I thank you in advance if you decide to partake…
The second event takes place on Facebook, on Wednesday 10th December. The fabulous author Mary Martinez invites you all to join us for a winter celebration with the Becketts. Who are the Becketts? Well, pop along to our party and all will be revealed. I will be there throughout the day, and I will bring along the vampire Marcus Scott from my novel The Darkness of Love, and my Kindle short story Christmas With The Vampires. There will be a select group of authors involved, and you have the opportunity to win books, swag and special offers from under the Beckett Christmas tree. See you there!
Did you enjoy this article? Join my tribe to keep informed of new stories from SpookyMrsGreen, and I will send you a fabulous FREE book from my Redcliffe novels series.
#BookTuesdau, what a wonderful idea. Books make wonderful gifts and indie authors will feel the benefit of every purchase .
Congratulations! I did NaNo in 2011 and didn’t make the 50K words in a month, but I carried on until I’d finished the story. NaNo is a great way to get a new novel going.
Well done! I haven’t taken part but applaud you for it!
