How Can it be November Already?

It is hard to believe, isn't it? Today is the specified day to vote--though there were some early voting days. Because of the disastrous storm, voting may be impossible for some. I mailed in my ballot a couple of weeks ago though because of the way they do it these days, we'll know who the president is long before the polls have closed in my home state, California--Alaska and Hawaii are in the same predicament.

My heart goes out to everyone who lost their homes in the devastating storm. It's difficult to even imagine how horrible it was and will continue to be for a long time.

Writing and promoting seems so insignificant compared to what is in the forefront of our minds right now, but that what this blog is all about.

I've been busy as I always am. I've been promoting a scary supernatural mystery that's out on Kindle, The Devil's Foothold. It's nothing like anything I've written lately--and getting it on Kindle was an adventure and wouldn't have happened without a lot of help.

I'm in the process of reading--and the rewriting and editing--my next Deputy Tempe Crabtree mystery to my critique group. I'm also writing another Rocky Bluff P.D. crime novel. In my spare time (that's a joke) I'm going over my first published book, an historical family saga, to be published on Kindle.

I'm headed north to Redding for an Author's Festival this weekend. My daughter is going to drive and we're calling it an adventure since it's about a 6 hour drive.

And guess what, since it's November, I need to start thinking about Thanksgiving. Yep, I'll be cooking like I usually do.

And we all know that the best movies come out in November and December--so I'll try to squeeze in a couple.

Here's the cover for The Devil's Foothold, hope it's not too scary for you.

  1. Great eerie cover, Marilyn! Sounds like you're busy and working hard, as usual. Don't forget to take a little time for yourself while you're at it.

  2. Hold on, Marilyn. Is it "Stronghold" or "Foothold"? I want to tell a couple of the gals I knit with (they like scary stuff) and want to get it right. Also, I really like the cover art.

  3. Thanks, Linda. Took a whole weekend to myself.

    And Vicky, what a dingbat I am some times. Don't even write the correct title--of course it is The Devil's Foothold! Gee whiz, sometimes I do such dumb things.
