Crazy title, right? But next Tuesday is the day all our votes will be counted. Lots of us have voted early. If you still have a mail in ballot, please hand deliver it to a drop off box or the polling place. Don’t put it in the mail. You have no guarantee it will get counted at this point. Rules vary throughout the states, but this is no time to take a chance. If you go in person, keep you distance from others, and wear your masks. I know my daughter and SIL Laura and Kevin will do it this way on November 3. Be safe, y’all.
So Saturday is Halloween and my other SIL’s birthday. Happy Birthday, Lance. Hope you get to eat cake.
I had something of a breakthrough about eating candy. I’ve always been an all or nothing kind of person where it comes to eating. In the past I’ve done the best managing my weight when I eliminated whatever: candy, burgers, or sandwiches. Well, I’ve learned when I thought about Halloween, I don’t have to do that anymore. When we used to buy tons of Halloween candy, we’d have lots left over. All of which I’d eat. We don’t have trick or treaters here on the lake, so I don’t buy all that candy. But we always have Hershey Kisses around and Ghirardelli squares. Used to be I wouldn’t have been able to have these around and not eat them all the time. And now I can. This is a good thing.
Okay on to Marketing. Lots going on. Do you like FREE BOOKS? I’ve never done them before, but I’ve got a couple opportunities for you coming up in November. The first is Thankful for Romance with several other authors in my NTRWA writing chapter. My books are SECOND ACT, the first book in The Second Chances Series, & TRUTH BE TOLD, a standalone set during the Christmas holidays. Here’s the link, but it’s not live until Sunday, November 1. https://claims.prolificworks.com/gg/0oCqvDHs6XoPv05ZZndF
The second FREE DAY will be only on November 7, National Author’s Day. And to win a free book, you’ll have to tune in to my live Zoom event from 10-10:30 that morning. I’ll give away three of my books using a random drawing. We’ll chat, and I’ll read some from my books. Here’s the link for this event.
I’ll include this in my Newsletter which will go out next week, too.
I’ll also have a spot in N. N. Light’s Book Heaven’s Holiday Gift Guide sometime in November. I don’t have the date or the link yet, but the spotlight will be on VERMONT ESCAPE.
So, have you voted? How did you do it? Do you like getting FREE BOOKS? What’s the most you’ll pay for an e-book. Do you decorate for Halloween? Do you have kids Trick or Treat at your house? Love to hear from you.
