I always do NaNoWriMo, but I rarely win. Actually, I’ve won once (2011) – the first year I tried it. November is just a bad month (for me) to do this, and I’m just not that fast a writer. So I’m at 3000 words on day 11. Not too impressive.
November always seems to fill up with stuff:
- I attended the World Fantasy Convention (more to come on that).
- My website is being revised.
- I took my books off KDP Select and am getting them set up on other channels (They’re popping up all over the place right now).
- I’m finishing the book files for my new novel – Death-Bringer (Definitely more to come on this).
- Finished final edits.
- Setting up ARC giveaways
- Getting it on pre-order for Amazon.
- Getting the paperback ready.
- Putting together my marketing strategy.
- Getting together with family on my Birthday.
- Normal writing group activities.
November is always too busy. I also joined a few group giveaways on Prolific Works (now that I’m off KDP Select). Check out this giveaway starting today:
There are lots of free Science Fiction and Fantasy books in this giveaway including book 1 of my Kingdom of Haven series – The Order of the Wolf.
