Cancellations, Features, and NaNo
November 4, 2011 in Blog
I was going to post about these things separately, but time got away from me, so I’m doing a single post.
My book signing at the Book Nook in Boyertown, PA was canceled this past weekend on account of a freak snow storm that blew over the Northeast Coast and dumped about 8 inches of snow in my area. A snow emergency was declared in my town, and a lot of people lost electricity for several days.
All in all, it sucked. I hate that the signing was canceled, especially because it was a Halloween event, but honestly, who could’ve predicted something like this at the end of October? James and Holly, the owners of the Book Nook, are looking into rescheduling.
I’ll post here as soon as I have more info.
For the next two weeks, I’m in the Author Spotlight over at the book blog Your Need to Read, and they’re helping me promote that little Twitter contest this month. Drop by, check it out, and ask me questions. Ask anything, really. I’ll do my best to answer.
If you’re a writer, you probably know that November is National Novel Writing Month (or NaNoWriMo). Several of my friends are participating this year, so if you want to link up with them and compare word count goals, feel free.
I’m not participating this year (nor have I ever). My ideas–the good ones, anyway–always tend to pop up prior to November, and the stars have never aligned. I also don’t want to start something new when I’m trying to rewrite & edit TLM. Speaking of which . . .
Rewriting takes longer than simply clicking “accept” next to Amelia’s suggested changes, so I’m moving along at a snail’s pace right now. The good news is that I’m almost done with Ch. 3 rewrites (which includes a couple of new scenes) which concludes what I hope will be the only major rewrites that have to be done. I hope.
I think that’s it for now. As always, thanks for reading.
