After a car accident puts her in a coma, Samantha awakens to find her best friend, Robin, never left her side. While she recovers, Sam realizes there’s more between them than just friendship. However, she’s afraid that if it doesn’t work out between them, it will ruin their friendship. Sam’s brush with death gives her a renewed understanding of how short life really is.
Deciding the possible benefits are worth the risk, she faces the challenges from her over-protective family head on and leaps into life with both feet, but when more challenges come their way, can Sam and Robin handle them together?
Is going a little differently for me this year. I have 3 novellas I would like to get the first drafts finished on before the first of the year, so I’m working on those. I’ve already started the first one, but not to worry, I’ll have plenty left to write on the other two for November.
Some of the advantages I think I’ll find to this method are.. I already know the characters better than I have in previous years (these will be each novella focusing on different couples, but with an interwoven story between them all, so I’ve met at least half of the couple for book 2 in writing book 1.) Also in the work of interweaving the overlying story I have more of an outline. It’s not hard and fast and it’s not a detailed out line but it’s a start, and something I rarely start with.

I had an amazing time! I saw a huge number of people that I hadn’t seen in years, some in 20 or more! Even a cousin that had to tell me who he was. I got to meet a lot of new people and tell even more about my books.
I was able to get my books into two new libraries! So if you live in the Clifton area or in Graham County, go in and ask for them, they should be available in both systems by now. I also hope to be able to schedule an event at the Safford Library in the future (when is going to depend on coordinating my schedule and theirs.)
It was a great trip and one I hope to do again next year. I’m also looking at the possibility of finding someone to share the booth with me and being able to go to the Graham County Fair next year.
Yes, I know that NaNoWriMo is still two months away from starting, However, since I’m a co-municipal liaison, we start thinking about it, and working on it, way early. Why? So we can do things like will start in just two days in my region (Yuma, AZ) NaNo Prep Workshops. What are they? A series of workshops, open to the public and sponsored by our local library system (so, FREE) to help people get ready for, plan, plot, create characters and worlds, so they can be ready to start with their NaNo novel in November.
Why are the workshops so early? Yes there will be a whole entire month between the end of the workshops and when NaNo starts. The answer is simple. We wanted to give our participants time in October to put what they learn to use. It takes time to create worlds, get to know characters, decide where you want to go with your story, etc. I could say it takes time to plot and outline but I don’t do that. I start my stories with characters, a situation and a goal, and let my characters tell me what happens from there.
Are you getting excited about NaNoWriMo?
