My brain flatlined

November has been a busy month for me and I haven't been on my blog much. I apologize for that. 

I have to call in a huge favor. My blog has not been sending out email to all who follow by email. So last week I pinged my account and all was good but still no emails for my posts coming through. I went to feedburner and pinged it again. It now gives me an error message. I have no idea how to fix. Anyone out there know how? If you do PLEASE post below or send an email. please, please, please!

Next up a huge thank you to everyone who helped get Eye of the Storm into the #23 spot just the other day. I felt special as it was up there with the likes of Stephen King and Dean Koontz! I would love to see it back up there. Eye of the Storm will be $ .99 for another 12 hours before the price goes up to $3.99. get em' while they are on sale and hot! And thanks to Ashley's Addictive Book Promotions it has a new cover.


Isn't the cover awesome! I can't stop looking at it and showing all my friends. I'm so in love with it. I'm working on getting the book cover on the paperback as well but create space is being a little difficult. Err... If you're waiting for the paperback, hopefully soon. cross your fingers.

Rafflecopter Giveaway you don't want to miss!

As most of you know I'm participating in NaNoWriMo this month and made my 50,000 last night about 11:00 p.m.

Friday night we had a write in. I love write in's because I have a blast meeting and talking with other authors, published or not. We are all working silently but in together. It's like our brain waves we feed off each other or something. The last remaining few of us left at 3:00 in the morning. I had been hopped up on coffee all night. My brain waves were fluctuating between moments of creativity and moments of nothingness at about 3 in the morning. Needless to say I crashed when I hit the bed.

By 8 a.m. I was up and ready to go, determined to hit my 50,000 words yesterday. I was close to 40,000 words. The writing was going well, my creative brain juices were flowing and I was surprised at the adult like decisions Cleo was making. She's no longer a scared little girl but a courageous woman. I'm proud of her. Around 10:30 p.m. my brain flatlined. I mean it was great and then just ceased to work. i had less than 400 words to go before I hit 50,000 so I couldn't stop! I freestyled it managing the final few chapters which small paragraphs on my document right now. I'll go back and develop them later this month or next. The bottom line is I hit 50K and met my 10K challenge yesterday. Wow!

For all Cleo's fans Baby Girl Book 4 Bite the Big Apple is being edited right now! It will be out in January. I'm excited too. I can't wait. This is the most well developed series I have and it's really a part of me. 

I will be making a couple Facebook appearances within the next couple weeks
11/19 Turkey Book Trot- 5 p.m.central time/ click the join button :-)
11/25 the Book Club 4-6 p.m. eastern time/

Have a fantastic day!
