Monday, Monday: Announcing a Giveaway

Oops, Murphy wasn't quite finished

One last word about Murphy's Law...Katie Kitten's digestive system started acting up again Friday night, so I'll probably be spending some time at the vet with her this this week. And of course, this is the week I plugged in a whole bunch of activities I can't or don't want to cancel. By the time Friday rolls around and I head for the Northern Colorado Writers Retreat at Sylvan Dale Guest Ranch near Loveland, Colorado, I'll be more than ready to focus on nothing but writing (and catching up on my sleep too). I've commissioned my Muse (the Nag) to send Murphy on his way. She's very persuasive.

Jenny takes you on a drive along Trail Ridge Road in Rocky Mountain National Park. Her photos are beautiful.

Dead Wrong is dead done...for now

Of course, if a nice agent or editor wants me to make changes, I'll say yes and go to work. But for now, I'm ready to send it out while I turn my attention to new projects (such as the novel I'll churn out in November during NaNoWriMo). I already know which standalone suspense novel idea I'm going to develop.

I'm giving away one copy of The Ledge by Jim Davidson and Kevin Vaughan

Follow the link to read all about this tense real life story of mountain climber Jim Davidson who almost died in a crevasse after climbing Mt. Ranier with his friend, Mike Price, who did not survive the fall.

To enter your name in the giveaway, just leave a comment below and make sure your e-mail address is available in the comment or through your profile when I click on your name. I'll cut off the entries at noon tomorrow (Tuesday) Mountain Time and announce the winner in my Wednesday Scramble.

Great job on finishing up Dead Wrong! and I'm anxious to see what you crank out in November. I already have a copy of The Ledge--a fabulous book.
I hope Katie feels better!

Best wishes for Katie Kitten...and you too! Nice job with Dead Wrong. I'm sure you'll find an agent/editor who finds it Dead Right!
