National Novel Writing Month

Good Morning!

Did you know that November is National Novel Writing Month, (NaNoWriMo)?  Do you have a novel inside you waiting to be born? Are you a novel doula? A story midwife? You could start now; visit the site; participation is free. Bring your kids along too; if you scroll down on the site you can read about the Young Writers Program.

Yesterday, November 1, was also National Authors Day. For me, every day is authors day so I didn’t do anything special other than . . . launch this website which connects readers with books.

      Hi Lindsay! This is a pretty solid guess – so solid that I double-checked the numbers; Ms. Rowling has sold over 500 million books – but there is at least one author who has sold more:
