Whew! Survived another NanoWrimo although still just a participant this year. 40,000 words closer to a new novel, though!
Lots has been happening while I've had my head down, furiously typing.
YourNovel.com is having a great sale. 33% off all their great personalized romance novels, including mine, of course. Also, I get extra brownie points if you type GAIL in the comment box when you order. I sort of suck at this self-promotion stuff, so I'd be really grateful if anybody wants to do that...
Now's the time to order for a really, really unusual Christmas gift!
Arizona Mystery Writers is gearing up for a Special Event on January 10, 2015. They are presenting Forensic Handwriting Examiner Sheila Lowe, who will talk about her courtroom experiences as a forgery specialist in the morning, and doing a workshop on handwriting analysis in the afternoon.
More Special-ness! On Thursday, December 11th at 11:00 am, AMW Presiding Chair Bill Adams and Speaker Chair Mary Ann Hutchison will appear on The Morning Blend, on KGUN 9 TV, talking about crime fiction, Arizona Mystery Writers, and Sheila Lowe. Be sure and watch!
And of course, everybody have a great Holiday Season! I know I'm still shopping!

This week, I donated my short story collection Sketches in the Air to BookShare.org, a library specifically for people with print disabilities. A great cause, and also a good way to introduce new readers to your work!
