November and Nano

Welcome Murderers! I haven't been posting much lately because home fires are burning out of control, and of course, Nanowrimo is fully underway. That means that I am writing like a machine. I am working on the FOURTH Shannon Wallace Mystery. Can you believe it? FINALLY! The first three were also Nano books and they were so much fun to write. This one is no different. Writing Shannon and Dwayne is like eating a Hershey's bar. No matter how long it's been since you had one, you still go yum when you take a bite.

The first book, retitled Disk of Death, is almost ready for its re-entry into the world. I am marketing it as a caper mystery. That's a caper story with a mystery added in for elements of fun and humor. Shannon and Dwayne have always been like Lucy and Ethel in my mind, so you know there will be hi-jinks.

My editor is superior and has worked hard with me to make this book the best it can be. I am still in awe that it went through TWO pro edits before being published back in 2008 and STILL had issues that needed addressing.

Believe me, Murderers, a good editor is worth the cost. They ain't cheap, but they are totally worthwhile.

So, if you are not a follower of mine at my website http://www.kimsmithauthor.com or on any of the social media sites, you should go do that. I am going to be updating the website soon and will have some big announcements in days to come-so don't miss anything!

Including, the big cover reveal for the new Disk of Death.

Hope your week is into the galaxies. Happy Thursday, y'all.
