A New Look for the Holidays

The end of Halloween has always marked the beginning of the holidays for me.  We're in the countdown now to Thanksgiving on November 22, and after that the Christmas Season will be in full swing. 

I have many reasons to celebrate this year, not the least of which is the completion of the manuscript High Maga, the companion novel to EolynHigh Maga is now in its final edits, being circulated for a few additional beta reads in preparation for the road to publication.  At the moment, we are looking at a release date in early 2014.  I've revamped the blog to accommodate this next stage of Eolyn's journey. I hope you like the new look, and I'm very excited about sharing this next adventure with all of you. 

This weekend is your last chance to register to win a FREE signed copy of Eolyn as part of my Bewitching Book Tour.  Visit any of the following posts and you can enter the November 6th drawing:

November 1:  Warrior Magic was first given to the mage Caedmon during the war against the Thunder People.  Read his story and more on For the Love of Film and Novels.

November 3:  Promotional Post for Eolyn on The Wormhole

November 4:  Author Interview with Laurie's Paranormal Thoughts and Reviews

November 5:  For my last stop, I will talk about High Maga.  What challenges lay ahead for our favorite maga?  Who will be the new heroes and villains of her story?  Stop by and feel free to ask questions on Always a Booklover.

Or you can choose from several October guest spots listed in my previous post, A Bewitching Time for All.
In addition to the Bewitching Book Tour, we have a lot of exciting events coming up in November.  There will be guest posts by Claire Ashgrove, Juli Revezzo, and Shauna Roberts.  Check the side bar in coming days for the dates of their visits. 
There are also a few posts left for my fall series on Women and Science, including one of my favorite stories, that of Nobel Prize laureate Barbara McClintock, the woman who discovered jumping genes.
Also, at the end of November, Hadley Rille Books will celebrate its birthday with sales and special offers on all its titles.  Please stay tuned for more information about how you can join the fun.
Okay.  I won't keep you any longer, as I'm sure you are anxious to enter Eolyn's Bewitching Book Tours giveaway.  Have a great weekend, and Happy Holidays!
