Finishing Up the Blog-A-Day Challenge

Today is November 30th, the last day of the November blog-a-day challenge among a few former classmates of Dani Greer's blogbooktour class. I'm pleased to say that with this short post, I made it. As soon as I publish, I'll pop on over to the group and give my report.

Starting tomorrow, I will post daily from Monday through Friday, and sometimes on the weekend. Although I was in the habit of writing posts the day before (or more) and pre-scheduling them to publish at 6:00 AM, I'd like to experiment more with writing and posting on the spot, even different times of the day. December, then, will be an adventure. I hope you'll watch for me to pop up to the top of your blogroll and then drop by for a visit.

I have three more book promotion events scheduled for December. One is easy -- appearing as a guest author at a local NaNoWriMo wrap-up event at the library where I'll help pass out awards.

The second appearance will be Sunday, December 6th from 3:00 to 5:00 at Who! Else Books at the Broadway Book Mall in Denver, CO, where I'll be joined by Colorado mystery authors and good friends, Mike Befeler, Linda Berry, and Beth Groundwater. If you live in the Denver area, I hope you'll come see us.

And finally, on December 12th, I'm scheduled to sign books at Reader's Cove Bookstore in Fort Collins, CO.

After that, I'll be joining local authors Cricket McRae and Barbara Fleming as we plan a panel presentation on the subject of strong women in fiction. We're hoping to schedule appearances at area libraries after the first of the year.

Doesn't seem as though we could possibly be facing December and the whole holiday season, does it? Where does the time go?

Time does seem to fly by more and more. With the holidays and all you have to do, you're going to be a very busy woman. Enjoy your post no matter what time of the day.

I Patricia,
It sounds like promoting a book is an ongoing affair. I'm happy for you. I was curious if you posted anything about your publisher, or if you self-published? Please can you direct me to that if you have.
Thanks, and have fun at all these events.

Where *does* the time go?

Hope you enjoy your signings and sell lots of books...

I try to post everyday but don't always find the time. I admire those that do, and I look forward to your posts. December should present a challenge, for me anyway.

I'm also evaluating my blog schedule for next year. I didn't schedule any weekly guests for 2010. But I think the different viewpoints keep things fresh, since I'm an "only" blogger.

Anyone want to be my guest next year?

Boy, Patricia, you have a busy month! Congrats on the blog a day challenge!
