I received an email from All Romance eBooks on Friday with links to the anthology eBooks, but I was out of town with future in-laws and didn’t have very good Internet access.You can find the sweet romance anthology, which includes my story, here:
In other news, I’m plugging away at my novel. I’m currently about 37K words with only three more days left. Unplanned trips to the hospital and spending Thanksgiving out of town did not do me any favors on this front. I’m hoping to have a strong rally today and tomorrow. I can’t vouch for how much writing time I’ll have on Tuesday so I want to hedge my bets as much as I can. Wish me luck!

I’ve been focused most of November on NaNoWriMo and a convention I was attending, so the blog has been neglected. Toss into this the fact that I had a delightful medical emergency has not helped.Now I’m running a malware killer on my laptop, and so I’m taking some time to update here. (Note to self: back up your novel!)
I got a good chunk of writing done on the way up from Portland, but I’m still behind the curve for NaNo progress. My main hope had been to squeeze out the full novel in 30 days, some 60-80K instead of 50K. I’m feeling less optimistic about that. Hopefully I can get more cranked out tonight and have a good stretch tomorrow.
I am doing much better with my outline this year than last year. Many props go to Kij Johnson, whose novel workshoppers this last summer were kind enough to give me the 411 on her advice.
My other quasi news is that I may be writing reviews for another site besides AC. This new site, called Rise Reviews, will focus on books put out by companies that do not pay pro rates. Those publications get short shrift in other review sites, so this site hopes to provide more support for the smaller markets. I’ll post links when there are links to post.

Still trailing in the first round of the Just One Bite contest. Feeling less and less hopeful. Still, five days remaining for the voting. Things could turn around.
Submitted my first article to Associated Content and it is pending approval. It and future articles will be available here. For now I’ll also be cross posting articles to this blog as well.
Today I also signed up for NaNoWriMo, and my profile can be found here. I’ve done it before under a different name, but this will be my first year doing it as me. My goal is to write the first novel of the series that my short story kicks off.
