So far, November has been pretty huge. On Wednesday, November 1st, Double Blind won the 2017 Kindle Book award for Mystery/Thriller! Which means I get to officially use this:
It’s so cool! It’s got those fancy wheat sheaves and everything. I’m not exactly sure where to put it though so I stuck it here for now until I get that part figured out.
My hearty thanks to all the judges at the Kindle Book review, and everyone involved in that process. Everyone has been so nice about everything. I wonder if they ever tire of all the exclamation points in the emails they must receive. For the record, I did try to tone it down.
But that’s not all that happened last week! Oh heck no.
We also survived my daughter’s first ever horror movie marathon. Poltergeist, Halloween, The Blob, and The Thing. She loved every minute of it. It was awesome. For the record, she has been asking for a long time.
7yo: Mom, can we watch the thing?
Me: What thing?
7yo: John Carpenter’s The Thing. Can we watch it?
Me: WTF?! NO.#WTFparenting

Then this happened.

And that Friday, after stocking up on cheese, crackers and beer, my BFF Candy and I left for a weekend writing retreat. We holed ourselves up in an old logging cabin on the Olympic peninsula and wrote all weekend.
On Saturday, I finally finished the first draft of Parallax! (Book three in the Thanatos Rising series.) I didn’t even cry this time.
So to celebrate all these awesome things, Double Blind is going on free sale. Starting November 18th through the 22nd, Double Blind will be downloadable for free. After that, it will be out and about! On Kindle, Kobo, Nook and Apple (just as soon as I can figure that one out).
