Just another November day....

Hey everyone..... hoping my blog problems are now over and wanted to leave a brief note on the end of October and the start of a new month. Right now my sons hockey is in full swing.... having some late nights of travel and today an early morning. The boys are doing what they can to come together but because of a few weak links it is just not producing to their potential.... too bad cause a bunch of the kids really deserve to be on a winning team but so far no W's are in the column.
Now on to some fun stuff..... my fave topic books books books..... As many of you know I had the very special opportunity to have a night with Colleen Gleason when she came to my town for a visit. It ended up pretty informal and was more like a chat as people came and went then we went for a coffee after along with her Mom..... great ladies both......
I might have already talked about that but it was so fun I hope you don't mind me repeating. Book reviews are going strong but with my laptop in for repair over a week now I am going through withdrawal.... no more late nights at the laptop, reading, reviewing and twittering. Can't stay on the desktop here very long before my shoulder starts to ache and my back as well.... the chair is not the best. I have started in the judging portion of the Dark Idol contest. I have a feeling my likes are not that similar to any of the other judges as my fave was not as popular with the other judges but I stand by my decision and still think it will be a great book so if you submitted and never got the nod please don't stop, keep going and pushing yourself to go for it. That leads me to those participating in NaNoWriMo..... I wish I had the time to participate this year but without my laptop and the time constraints right now there is no chance. Good luck to those able to take the time to attempt that dream.
Now I must talk about another contest that is near and dear to my heart.... yep I wanna win but I too want to let you know that this contest is a countdown to an amazing book..... I was priviledged to review and can`t wait to get a hard copy to add to my permanent book shelf. That book is Shiloh Walker`s Hunter`s Need. Please make sure you add it to your December book list cause you will not be dissappointed. Here is the link to the contest if you want to join the fun....

Check out the 30 days of Giveaways Countdown to Hunter`s Need

Oh yeah there is another big contest you all need to check out.... it is over at the Fangs Fur and Fey blog and first prize is a kindle.... yah I still have nothing to read my books on and I really need one but I would love to help someone on their way to win one as well.... check out the blog at.....

The only other excitement I have had this week is the opportunity to do a quick beta read for a fellow twitter friend..... it was really cool and I think I am getting better at this as I expand my portfolio of writing and editing experience.... plus it was a great read and really fun.... LOL

Now I am going to once again get down to work and try and get a review or two done.... thanks for stopping by this brief blog about nothing in particular..... What does everyone have on tap for the month of November.... I will be heading to Michigan for the US Thanksgiving for a hockey tournament but other than work and getting some stuff done around the house not much on tap for me..... talk later ..... Shell
