Big News: Book Launch + Giveaway!

Well, Friends, it’s really happening.

Katie Watson and the Painter’s Plot launches this Sunday,

December 10th! 

For those of you who haven’t heard, this is my debut MG novel, written last year during NaNo. Now, over a year later, it’s finally making its way out into the world with River Otter Books.

(You can find out more about the book on my website: Mezblume.com)

You will find the book on Amazon & in all good bookshops in both print and digital, and as a little bonus, I’ve included a link inside the book to download a free audiobook version. *(hint: look in the inside cover of the ebook!).

And speaking of FREE…

I’m so eager to share this story, I’ve decided to run a 5 DAY FREE PROMO!

That means from 10 – 15 December, you can download the ebook absolutely free.

**So, basically, that picture of the cosy Kindle-reader by the fire could be YOU this 10 December!** 😉

Now for the Contest. drum roll, please …

I’m giving away free signed copies of the book to 2 winners, announced on Dec. 11th. Here’s how to enter for a chance to win one:

  • Visit Amazon (in the site for whichever country you live) on 10 Dec. and download the FREE Kindle version of Katie Waston and the Painter’s Plot
  • Return to this post and leave a comment to say you’ve downloaded!

For a second entry:

I’m truly proud of this book, and I’d love to see it in the hands of folks like you — fellow readers, writers & tea-drinkers!

And of course, please leave me a review on Amazon after you’ve read it. I’d love to know what you thought!

Thank you for all the support, and GOOD LUCK!

NaNoWriMo is OVER!!!

And I did it!!! And it’s not even midnight yet. I’m so proud of myself (you know, for not writing the 50,000th word at 11:55). I completed 50,264 of The Funeral Ghoul and…well…21,590 of Believing in Magic. So not quite what I wanted to accomplish, but hey, I’ll take it! I’m hoping to complete them both before the end of the year.

I think one big difference this year from last year is that The Funeral Ghoul is actually moving along very well. There aren’t any huge plot changes needed (yet) and I know mostly where it’s headed (and as I warned Mez, it’s going to be heartbreaking) though the details are a little fuzzy. Can’t wait until I get there!

As for Believing in Magic, it’s harder for me simply because it’s not really moving. It will, I think, in a scene or two. The main problem is that I’m trying to convey how hard it would be for someone with social anxiety to be whisked of to a completely new world with new rules and new ways of doing things. Which means that I find myself describing how hard it is for her to find her new classroom by herself and how she hides in her room instead of having to face the horror of the mess hall…and so the story itself creeps by.

So there’s how my NaNoWriMo went! Let me know if you participated and how you did and what your plans are now! Happy December, everyone.
