My stat’s from today at Camp NaNoWriMo.

So I took the leap and decided I would publish this novella through Amazon’s CreateSpace. Here is a link to a very tiny preview; if you have a moment I would appreciate your feedback!

    1. Thank you! I am on a good clip now and am looking forward to Saturday’s Camp Out. I hope to get even farther ahead of schedule. I am trying to find out if CreateSpace allows authors to give discount codes out. If so, all my bloggy friends will get the super-secret link for the novella when it is done 🙂

  1. AR, this has a good flavor from the first two paragraphs. Starts out setting the stage and immediately gets personal. Ela has a tough row to hoe, for sure. I’m already worried about the girls, and the “because Hank was too drunk,” I mean, I grew up with that, and it’s said so “matter-of-factly” that I could identify.

    A typo or two – if you need a “strictly content” editor, email me – although I must say, you’re great with the semicolon. Most people stick it in “to make people think I’m smart,” says my friend David, whose book I edited (Bruce Lee, Woodstock & Me, the memoirs of Fred Weintraub, a Hollywood producer). I’m at sharplittlepencil (a t) gmail (you know, don’t want to get computer cooties; I never spell out my full address!).

    In the meantime, I’d love to hear more about Ela, so I hope you’ll post again. I’m also writing a memoir about my mom’s side of the family (lots of bathtub gin and jazz for days, plus mental illness and how Grandma Blanche made the Depression interesting). Let me know how CreateSpace works for you! Peace, Amy

    1. Thank you! This is my first time doing any sort of NaNo, so I am trying to meet (read: exceed!) my word count. I read on the primary NaNo site the suggestion that the prescribed time be used to write, write, and write more. Editing comes later 🙂 I would love to have you give it a once-over after I go through it in a couple months. Yes–computer cooties! I can he found pacing at arobinson(dot)neal(at)gmail(dot)com. Your book sounds very interesting as well! Do keep us informed about it!

      Seek peace & pursue it. Psalm 34:14b. Sent from my BlackBerry®
