Finally Fall!

It's beginning to feel a lot like November. Finally. 

I don't mind 70 degrees, but it's a little jarring when we're rapidly approaching Thanksgiving and I'm doing holiday craft shows.

Besides frantic sewing, family visits in NJ, and cleaning up the garden so I don't have to do it in the spring (which happens almost every year), I'm trying to get the first draft of my next book done by end of month. It's not scheduled for publication until April, but if I finish by December 1, I can let it rest for a while and then start in on edits in the new year. 

It's a luxury to have that resting period between writing and editing, because (1) edits always take longer than expected, and (2) after my first readers have gone over the book, they always find typos that spellcheck and I didn't catch. And then I always find something to change at the last minute. Always.

But the cover is done, and the blurb is at about 90%. When I have that coherent, I'll share it here.

How's your fall going? Is it fall where you are? If it's not, is it because you're down under or because Mother Nature just isn't ready to let go of shorts weather yet?
