Just six days left to organize my life so I can churn out those 50,000 words in November. Many of my posts will be short, but I’ll still have some great guest bloggers this month. Historical mystery writer Ann Parker will be my guest on Monday.
The Cold Case Squad blog
I’m also making a guest appearance at Joe Giacalone’s Cold Case Squad blog on November 3rd where I talk about the crime writer’s research into new technology such as Touch DNA to keep their stories up to date. I know, it’s so unlike me to do a serious post on writing, but Joe’s blog is serious business.
Your Chance to Win a Copy of Peas and Thank You (a vegan cookbook)
Writer friend Carolyn has a wonderful blog about food and artsy-crafty things at Hooked and Happy. Check out her post (with yummy-looking food photos) from yesterday where she offers her followers a chance to win a copy of this well-reviewed cookbook. The giveaway at A Week of Peas and Thank You is open to U.S. residents and will close at 8:00 PM Mountain Time on Monday, October 31st.
A big snow was forecast for Colorado, expected to start around 9:00 PM last night and lasting at least into midday today. I’ll have some photos for you on Friday. This is a drastic change from temperatures in the 70s and 80s we’ve enjoyed this fall. But after all, it is Colorado.
My Wine in Progress
I added raspberries and a pound of red wine grapes to my Concord grape harvest and am trying to make my wine without additives or yeast…just a little sugar to help the fermenting along. It will be interesting to see if I get wine or vinegar. I’ll keep you posted.
What I’m Reading
I’m finishing up Swedish author Kitty Sewell’s excellent novel of psychological suspense, Bloodprint, and will then start the new novel from South African author Dyon Meyer, Trackers. I seem to be reading my way around the world these days.
