Dragon Kingdom is Day Twelve! 30 Cover, 30 Days - NaNoWriMo 2018

I’m so surprised and excited by this that I’m re-blogging it! And to think that I almost missed seeing it, because, exhausted from a dreary, rainy Monday - I almost didn’t sit down to log in to at all. But I did - after the kids were in bed - at nearly half-past 9pm in my pjs with a cup of chamomile.

And here’s what I saw: 30 Covers in 30 Days - Day Twelve

Dragon Kingdom & The Wishing Stone!

Read the NaNoWriMo Blog Post Here:

This is a contest I’ve participated in since I joined NaNoWriMo for the first time in 2016, when I was writing the first book of The Dream Chronicles, Tiger Kingdom & The Book of Destiny. I never expected to have one of my novels chosen!

Designer Mark Pagano ( has created a colorful design that captures the title, and I think will appeal to young readers. I don’t think NaNoWriMo rules allow for me to use this cover in any published versions or for marketing purposes (ie: it can’t be used for sales, etc) but it’s great to have for writing inspiration! Big thanks to both Mark and NaNoWriMo for giving writers the chance to see their ideas become art! I don’t think I’ll be able to sleep for a while after seeing this, so maybe I’ll get in another thousand words....:-)

Happy Writing & Reading! And thank you for visiting my Author Blog.

Happy NaNoWriMo 2018!

Today marks the first day of National Novel Writing Month 2018, and this is my third year in a row participating. Writers from across the nation are putting pens to paper and fingers to keyboard to complete their stories. Specially, those ideas they’ve had in their heads, characters, scenes and dialogue they’ve imagined - but haven’t yet shared with the world. NaNoWriMo gives writers the motivation they need to get started and continues to fuel them with daily inspirations, writing tools and tips throughout the month of November.

If you’ve ever thought about writing a novel, or have ideas ready to come bursting out of your head - what’s stopping you? Sign up for NaNoWriMo 2018 and find your writing tribe! You can join region specific groups and meet fellow writers at local coffee shops & libraries. Or, if you prefer to stay at home, you can join online chats, forums and participate in twitter conversations to keep the creative juices flowing. NaNoWriMo even has a YouTube channel where you can watch interviews & tips on writing from the NaNoWriMo staff. However you choose to “hook in” - don’t miss this chance to join a movement that celebrates writing, writers - and novels.

Here’s what I’ll be working on this NaNoWriMo 2018 - Dragon Kingdom & The Wishing Stone, the 3rd book in The Dream Chronicles.

Happy National Novel Writing Month 2018! #amwriting
