Happy Halloween!

Thanks again to everyone who came out to Boswell Book Company and the Wauwatosa Public Library last weekend to the Plaguewalker events, to those of you who purchased Plaguewalker and to all the great Milwaukee media folks who featured the book on air, online or in print (in case you missed last week’s media blitz, I’ve gathered it all on a new media page).

As promised, over at GemmaTarlach.com, my main blog, I’ve posted a special holiday treat that I hope you enjoy. Go check it out!

A few new Plaguewalker events are in the works, and I’ll be posting about them soon, but first I’d like to ask you to write something. Tomorrow, November 1, marks the start of NaNoWriMo, National Novel Writing Month.  Back in 2010, I broke a deadly case of writer’s block (deadly to my characters, anyway) by participating and writing what ended up as The Guardian, the sequel to The War’s End (which, yes, I still need to finish editing).

The great things about NaNoWriMo are that it’s free, it’s easy and anyone can do it. Whether or not you’ve written before, they offer all kinds of motivation and tips to help you get to the finish line. Check it out today! (And if you join, you can find me there as AllegedMastermind, one word.)

If you have no desire to write a novel, consider supporting those who do by donating to NaNoWriMo’s various endeavors, including a Young Writer’s Program.

Thanks again, and enjoy your holiday!
