One more thing!
This week I’m checking off one of my goals for 2021 – (Re)Starting my Podcast!
The book for the December Random Drawing is #SavvyBusinessOwner by Savy Leiser – Author To enter the drawing simply sign up for my Insider’s Circle newsletter! It’s absolutely free and you receive First Chapters of all my projects! Click on the Pretty Pink Gift Box on this page!
Here’s the description of #SavvyBusinessOwner WARNING: This book is NOT for BossBabes who want to build an empire. This book will NOT teach you how to get rich, especially not quickly. This is a book of SPECIFIC tips for SMALL business owners! This book is not going to motivate you. If you need SAVY, who’s likely a stranger you met on the internet, to tell you that “you can do it,” then you might not be ready to start a business. This is more than a self-help book targeted at entrepreneurial women. In this book, SAVY tells the full story behind the award-winning book and toy business The Furever Home Friends: from raising the money to start it , to registering and LLC, and more. You’ll learn how to craft a sales pitch, how to generate startup capital, and more, all while SAVY gushes about cute dogs. If you hated Girl, Stop Apologizing, you’ll love #SavvyBusinessOwner.
It’s almost time to put 2020 in the rearview mirror!
How are you holding up? I hope you and your loved ones are well and happy as we enter the busy holiday season!
So, let’s close out November business and see what else is in store for the last month of the year.
I survived the National Write a Novel in a Month (NANOWRIMO) Challenge – and Won!!
Pardon me while I take a quick victory lap with this cute badge!

What else is happened in November? … Hmmm

NOW ON TO DECEMBER!
We experienced our first real snowstorm on December 1st. If you follow me on IG, you may have seen a short video. Here’s another look at it. (Psst, although it’s lovely, I’m not a big fan.)
The Book Giveaway for December is #Savvy Business Owner or any one of Savy Leiser’s books (Kindle US – only) because I think she’s amazing and fun!
Here is the list of book prizes for the random drawings. >> One copy of the Kindle ebook version, US residents only. <<
My Insider’s Circle Random Drawing – Book Giveaway this month is Widow’s Weeds by Sara Keefe.
WIDOW’S WEEDS is the first in an alternate history mystery series set in Japan. Set in a “steampunk-lite” timeline, the world of the Motosu Mysteries is slightly different from our own. Steam-power and clockwork are giving way to new technologies such as solar-power and electro-power. Imagine the world of Sherlock Holmes combined with a Ghibli movie, and you’re quite close to the setting and tone of the Motosu Mysteries series.
You can join my free Insider’s Circle and receive first chapters of my books and a chance to win a Kindle book in the monthly random drawing.
Just click on the pink box!

A literal man-eater, Ghost was born…damaged.
A Valkyrie without a purpose. Working as an Enforcer and servant to the grumpy Master of the Well of Knowledge doesn’t leave Ghost a lot of time to dwell on the small stuff. Like why her Valkyrie sisters call her an abomination, why Odin has abandoned her, or why her possessed sword, Silence, can’t figure out a simple haiku. When she is hired to assassinate a Mythic gone bad her problems continue to multiply. Not only are Mythics disappearing but she has been tasked with retrieving a missing book that leaves her with a lot more questions than answers. Ghost discovers there is a lot more going on behind the scenes of the Mythical Realm than she once thought.
Buy Queen of Swords and Silence NOW on Amazon.
