Book Giveaway LATER THIS MONTH

November 19, 2008 Posted by novelistcd

I’ll be reviewing and giving away these ZONDERKIDZ children’s books later this month. I’ll let you know when you can post to enter the drawing.


We Believe In Christmas by Karen Kingsbury

The Gift of the Christmas Cookie by Dandi Daley Mackall

I’m not sure which day I’ll be posting the review and drawing, but it will be soon. You can subscribe to this blog if you want to be sure you don’t miss entering the drawing. I’ll be sending the books out soon after the drawing just in case somebody wants to give the books to their children as Christmas gifts.

I Can’t Believe I Did It…

November 19, 2008 Posted by novelistcd


Last weekend, I actually read my book, Milk Money. Doesn’t sound like a phenomenal thing to do, but…I NEVER read my novels once I get my author copies. Once I get the real novel, I’ve read the manuscript so much that I’m sick of the story. I guess I read this one because I wrote the original version about ten years ago! I’ve re-written and re-submitted over the years (while working on other projects), and I am glad to say that it’s a good thing it was rejected so long ago. I feel this version is much better than the older versions I was peddling to the editors at the publishing houses.

I kind of enjoyed reading the actual novel. It was a great way to spend part of my weekend!
