Yesterday was a storm day. We’d been on hurricane watch for a few days and I felt we were prepared. I had filled the larder, we had extra water, and everything from outdoors had been brought inside. There was nothing left to do but wait.
I awakened at six a.m. to the siren sounds of wind shrieking past the house and whistling around the front door. I smiled and snuggled deeper under the covers. I like the sound of wind.
A short while later the power went out, but was kind enough to let the coffee pot do its thing first. Ah, a hot cup of fresh coffee to start a stormy day. Life is good. Since I couldn’t work at the computer I have plenty of time to knit and let the characters from my next book talk to me. I finished a pair of socks I’d been working on and had some notes with great ideas.
The heavy rains that played hob with the rest of Newfoundland never did reach this blessed isle. By mid-afternoon the power was back on, the sun was out, and the winds had died off. The only damage we suffered was a few dead branches down from one of our old trees.
Now here’s a reminder about the Free books and Bling!
Okay folks, just as I promised, it is time for some giveaways. Why? Well, think of it as reader appreciation time. You wonderful people have been extremely good to me and I want you to know it. The outpouring of warmth and support after my car accident was both heartwarming and humbling.
So, here’s the deal. Two of my books will be free for the rest of September. If you download a book, let me know and I will enter your name for a draw at the end of the month. There will be two draws, so let me know which one you want (or both). Next month will a new contest so keep checking back.
The first draw is for a $25.00 gift certificate from The Purple Raven Boutique.
The second draw is for a $25.00 coupon towards editing services from Powder River Editing.

Now, Row80: the goal for the rest of this round is to get my WIP as close to 40K words as I can. I just hit 34K this morning. Creeping up there and very pleased to be so.
