NaNoWriMo and Book Contests

I decided to sign up for National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) and see if I can write a 50,000 word novel in the month of November. With me hosting Thanksgiving this year (which includes the first meeting of my and my fiance's families), programs at work, and all the books I have to read and review, it'll be interesting to see if I find the time, but I'm going to try! (I really wish I had a time turner...)

There's lots of book contests going on, and with this being the end of October, you only have a few more days to get your entries in! Check these out and be sure to enter ASAP!

Free Book Friday is giving away copies of Untamed by P.C. Cast

Free Book Friday: Teen Edition is giving away ARC copies of Evermore by Alyson Noel (coming in Feb. 2009-be watching my blog for my review very soon!)

Author Kelly Parra is finishing up her Secret Fates blog contest this week with authors sharing secrets and giving away their books

Author Brooke Taylor has been hosting a Monster Month of Giveaways and she's giving away a HUGE Paranormal Powerball on (when else?) Halloween

Over on The Page Flipper Chelsea is holding an auction for a marked up copy of Tantalize by Cynthia Leitich Smith

Last, be sure to keep watching my blog as I'm planning on hosting some giveaways in the next month (just another thing to make November crazy!)

  1. Best of luck with the writing!! I hope you get a lot finished, if not all the way to finish line. Anything is awesome! I've been meaning to write more myself.

    Oh, I also wanted to let you know that I did email the newsletter for november and if you do anything with it, feel free to let me know/take a picture and i'll post the pictures on the myspace/blog...but don't feel obligated too of course. :)
