I guess it’s time to pull my space heater out of the closet. It’s 5 degrees F. outside and feels about 30 in this little room at the NE corner of our house. I don’t think the furnace blast is getting this far.
Northern Colorado is not the only place that’s feeling the arctic freeze at the moment. I think we have only three inches of snow at our house so far, and I know some of you have lots more than that.
I convinced my writers’ group to skip the meeting last night and deliver our critiques by email.
With errands to run and a meeting to attend today, I was wishing for the snow to stop and the temps to go up at least a few degrees. So far, that’s not happening.
For now, I’m chiseling away at my To Do List for Dead Wrong promotions. The official book release date is November 19th, so I’ll have stuff for you on my blog Nov. 17-19. Brian Kaufman’s review of Dead Wrong is scheduled for his Rabbit Hole Reviews blog on November 19th. I’ll have a blog post called “My Love Affair with Fat Ass Sammy Grick” up soon at Mark Bacon’s site. A guest post is coming later at Buried Under Books blog and an interview with Author Expressions blog. And my one big pre-Christmas book signing and party is scheduled for December 13th.
Am I doing enough? Only time will tell.
In the meantime, I have a special guest post tomorrow from a Northern Colorado friend, Nancy L. Reed. She’s been writing for a really long time and has an enormous number of manuscripts from “in process” to “completed.” With the help of Rich Keller and his business venture, Wooden Pants Publishing, she has a new release to tell us about. Her story is an inspiration to all those writers who produce good work but have not yet been published.
