A Plug, A Nano Update, and Thankfulness

It’s Small Business Saturday, and it just dawned on me that I probably count as a small business now that I’m self-publishing myself via Amazon.  At least I remembered before the day was over?  This advertising part of being an author is hard, guys…

Anyway, here is a link to my books.  If you’re in the mood for weird fantasy and want to support a self-published gal working hard, this is the place to go.  https://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=casey+hamilton

On to Nanowrimo…

I am 7000 words behind in Nano now and trying not to panic.  I’ve been down more than 10,000 now and still won, but I also feel like I only have another day or two of this magical interlude where people aren’t working and I have help around the house before school and juggling get real again.  The baby has officially dropped his first nap, too, which means I get to cram in school and writing in the space of time where I used to only have to cram in one.  Still, I have 33,000 usable words that I would not be ashamed to show an alpha reader.  Not too shabby!

Also, I am determined to win.  I have never lost the November event except for last year, when I had an emergency c-section in the middle of it.  I think I get a pass for that.  This year I don’t have major surgery and new parenthood as an excuse, so I’m being hardcore about it.

Lastly is my Thanksgiving report:

Our holiday was an epic celebration several days long, where we visited with my dad and husband’s side of the family on Thursday, and with my mom’s side on Friday.  I am thankful for many things this year, but top on my list are Asher (who makes me laugh every day), Brian (who insists on being a full partner in taking care of our small boy while still managing to make my heart go aflutter), my amazing family and friends (without whom I would go stir crazy), and you (for being interested in this author journey I’m on).

Happy season, and I’m sure I’ll be back to blogging more regularly soon.  The end of the semester tends to fry my brain and so does Nano, so I’m extra crispy right now…
