If I blink one more time, 2011 will be over. Seems I only blinked a few other times this year and it just whisked right by at lightning speed.
It’s been a year of ups and downs, highs and lows—you know, the usual stuff of life that happens to everyone. Our year was fraught with some health concerns (all resolved now, praise God!), some fun vacationing (we’re one of those old cruisin’ couples now), and a lot of house hunting and mountains of paperwork. Not the kind of stuff that’s always conducive to good writing … or any writing at all.
And yet, I managed to successfully complete my eighth year of NaNoWriMo in November. This one’s probably salvageable (not all of them are), although not for a while. The front-burner writing project is again Fork in the Road … and other pointless discussions. The new target date for release is a very specific and pinpointed “Spring 2012.” Hey, as long as I get it done before the world ends a year from now, it’s all good, right?
And remember, if you have a Kindle or get a Kindle from Santa this year (or even just use the Kindle app on another device), my first book, Head in the Sand … and other unpopular positions, is available in Kindle format for a paltry $2.99.
Oh, and those of you with Amazon Prime memberships, be aware: The Kindle Lending Library program now includes Head in the Sand as well! That means that it can be your “borrowed” book for any given month. Read it for free! I’ll worry about getting the royalties squeezed out of Jeff Bezos. You just enjoy the ride!
And in the meantime, I continue to collect mental snippets for Fork in the Road, which is coming along nicely. (Some days lately, I don’t find anything funny at all, but then someone in my life does something boneheaded and it’s all good again!)
Have a blessed Christmas, and we’ll see you in print in 2012!
