Hawthorn Release Day

HAPPY RELEASE DAY!! It's taken us a long, long time to get to this point, and I'm ecstatic that we're finally here. At long last, you are now able to download the Kindle version of Hawthorn over on Amazon. So please go check it out and add it to your e-readers. Unfortunately, we ran into many, many problems in the production of the paperback copy. As it turns out, if you so much as fix the only mistake in the book, the whole document freaks out. Due to the review process that Createspace has in place, every review takes on average 24 hours.

On the plus side, I did hit over 50k words in Avens already. Okay, so a coup

Successful Samhain

Samhain has officially passed, and I feel good about how it turned out. Granted, when it started, there was snow on the ground. And it was freezing when I was out on the porch to pass out treats. (I mean that literally, even though the snow melted, it started up again around six before turning to rain around seven.) Also, I only had 35 trick-or-treaters. One down from last year, actually. Ah well, that's what happens when you live in a retirement town. The more exciting news comes in the form of the giveaways. Lasting from October 20 through the 31st, the giveaways consisted of 2 copies of Ivy and 1 copy each of Oleander and Valerian. Now, for the two copies of Ivy, there were 638 requests!
