Cheers to the holiday season 2021

Emma’s list & picks

There’s no better time of the year than the holidays which are upon us. Whether you have started your shopping or not, it’s a good time to put together your list. I like to choose unique gifts. On top of my list are books, books, and more books because there’s nothing more unique than books.
As in the past, I will continue the tradition of gifting books by fellow indie authors.
I have my eyes set on Mark Bello’s “Supreme Betrayal” and Sherri Burton’s “The Orphan Train Saga” for my parents.
Childrens’ books for my grandkids by authors Joan H. Young, Melinda Falgoust, and Ingar Rudholm.
I also buy books for myself, after all, I have to support my colleagues and fellow authors in our common endeavors. I will add to my indie author collection “Flicker” by Melanie Hooyenga for granddaughter Ella, and “Adam” by Andrew Allen Smith.

Power Your NaNo 2021

With the National Novel Writing Month better known as NaNoWriMo just around the corner, expert NaNo authors Jean Davis, Sara Shanning and Kristine Brickey offer tips on how to win the 50k word challenge in November.

Whether you hit a writer’s block, crossroads in the plot or the midway slump, just keep on rolling.

“Just keep on writing,” Davis said.

Not only do you keep on writing no matter what, you will also need writing and accountability buddies to keep you on track.

The average word quota per day to win the challenge is 1,667 words a day. However, because unpredictable things happen, you should bank words when they are flowing.

“I try to work ahead,” said Colleen Nye, an author, and co-producer of “For the Love of Books Podcast.”

All authors have multiple years of NaNo experience with books published based on their participation in the challenge.

Listen in also on major podcasting apps, because you too can become a published author.
