Am I a NaNoWriMo failure?

I knew I wouldn’t hit 50,000 words when I signed up, but I wanted to contribute to my Desert Rose team who competes with another Arizona Romance Writers of America team.

The second novelette in my new book series is called Christmas in Waller County, which means I had to get it out into the world before Christmas. So, that was my first priority. When November started, the book hadn’t been edited, and all the work that goes into self-publishing still needed to be done. That includes editing as well as formatting and marketing. I had a lot to do for Christmas in Waller County.

I also committed to writing a short story for an anthology of romance stories, and that was due in mid-December.

So, as I started writing my NaNo book, I knew it would be set aside frequently while I worked on Christmas in Waller County and the short story.

What I hadn’t expected (and these always come up, don’t they?) was a correspondence with a literary agent. My writer friends will understand why this task took center stage, and my actor friends need only to substitute “literary” for “theatrical” or “commercial” to understand why this was suddenly so important. So, I set aside Christmas in Waller County, my short story, NaNoWriMo and anything else I thought needed to be done in November and gave the agent whatever she requested.

Nothing’s set in stone yet, but I’m optimistic about the agent. Christmas in Waller County is out, my short story is almost ready and I contributed 15313 words to my NaNoWriMo team (not to mention, I now have a first draft of my next Hogback book). If I’m a failure, let’s hope every month will be as unproductive for me as November was. Bring on the next one.

Christmas in Waller County, Book Two in my Hogback Series is now available on Kindle!

When Palmer Finnegan shows up and threatens to expose Hogback’s secrets to the world, every vampire in town wants him dead. Except for one.

Nathan is determined to keep Finnegan alive, but something goes sideways during the Christmas Stroll. Can he protect Finnegan from the violence that now pervades Hogback? Will blood be spilled on Peanut’s red Christmas coat? And can Nathan keep Holly away from the mistletoe over Keen Justice’s head?

When things go terribly wrong in Hogback, Nathan might be the only one who can make them right again.

Will he do the right thing? Or is the wrong thing what Waller County really needs?

Confused? Well, so is Nathan. Welcome to Hogback.

NaNoWriMo

For all of you out there starting your November off with a book in your head, ready to write, I salute you!

I’ve never participated before, but I signed up at the last minute.

What changed my mind? Last night at my Desert Rose Romance Writers of America meeting, I learned that we have a NaNoWriMo team, and we compete with another local group, and every word written by our team counts, whether we reach our individual goals or not.

Do I have a 50,000-word novel in my immediate future? No, but that doesn’t mean I can’t play. I won’t “win,” but I’ll have fun and who knows what I’ll have in my hot little writer hands when it’s all over.

Happy writing, friends!

Happy Halloween!

What better endorsement can a Halloween book have than a review from Elvira, Mistress of the Dark? You can imagine how thrilled I was when I saw her promoting my book on Facebook and Twitter. I even updated my cover to include her quote. Thank you, Elvira!
