How have you been since I saw you last? I have been incredibly busy with a hospital stay (I'm right as rain - don't worry!) and moving house (No more scary neighbours and spider infestation! Hello 2 storey townhouse with added new housemate and MY OWN OFFICE!)
And a pretty abysmal attempt at NaNoWriMo which was severely interrupted by the above hospital stay and house move. Also the fact that I was irritating myself by trying to write a thriller...but it was coming out funny. How you other WriMo's do? Didja win?
Some of my friends have had fabulous news lately, Angela Townsend sold her werewolves in Alaska book, Amarok to Spencer Hill Press, and Meagan Spooner & Amie Kaufman sold their Titanic in Space sci fi trilogy Wrecked to Disney-Hyperion!
I'm so very proud of them all. This is the same Meagan Spooner I was excited for who sold her dystopian/fantasy trilogy a couple of months ago. So she has six books coming out, starting next year. O.O
Speaking of people with six books coming out, Robin Mellom's debut Ditched has been released and is garnering rave reviews which doesn't surprise me as it sounds hilarious.
I may not have book deals coming out the wazoo like some people I know and love, but November was my highest selling month for my ebooks to date, so if you've read any of them, I hope you've enjoyed them. And if you feel so inclined, a short review on the site you bought it would be so appreciated!
Intrigued about my ebooks?
