Congratulations Winners and NaNoWriMo

Hello to everyone. I am glad you stopped in today, and I have to say I hope to keep seeing you. The 2014 Coffin Hop is over, and I had a blast. Not only was there a lot of fantastic writing to read and art to look at, but I actually one something. That put a new item on my reading list.

Speaking of winning, it is time to announce the winner for my contest. Originally, I had offered a single e-copy ARC of my novel Double Occupancy.

Well, there were a total of 38 entries, and I like giving this out, so I am upping the qty. I decided to give away four copies. One of you that entered multiple times must have worked some magic on the old drawing hat, because your name came out for every time you entered.

Anyway, congratulations to Katie M John, Michelle Willms, The Manicheans & afstewart. I will be hunting for your e-mail addresses today. I have your books waiting for you.

On to other things.

As almost all writers with an internet presence are aware, November is National Novel Writing Month. It is the time of year when the truly insane amongst us let their crazy wave around like a flag by telling everyone that they are going to write a 50,000 word novel in a month. That works out to 1667 words per day.

This year, I am joining the insanity. If you look on the right hand side, below my advertising, you will find a daily word count. I will condense the count at the end of the week so that I don’t have thirty entries on that sidebar. My end of the week will be when I total a week’s entries up. It has nothing to do with a calendar.

So, this month’s stories and posts are going to be short from here on out.

Wish me luck. I am going to need it.

Revenge

He sat with his back straight, because slouching is bad for you.

His mother told him that.

He never said anything mean about other people behind there back. If he didn’t like someone, he just didn’t talk about them.

His grandmother told him that.

He never said anything that wasn’t true. A man was only as good as his word.

His grandfather told him that.

He did what he believed he should, because actions speak louder than words.

His father told him that.

When he walked into the bank and started shooting, it was because they had downsized him before raising his payments and taking his home away. An eye for an eye.

He didn’t remember where he had read that, and until today, he had never understood what it really meant.

    Best of luck with NaNo. I like your background image with the chained books.
