"A half-dozen" is a very nice term. It's an even number, meaning six, and a cozy word, sounding a little bit like doves and a little bit like "blowzy" and a little like cookies or doughnuts or something edible. A half dozen is half of a dozen, which is twelve, and twelve is also a nice number.
But you know me. I hate numbers. I'm only going on about half-dozens because very soon I will celebrate six months of publishment!
August 14th marks six months; six months since I became a published author! In that six months I have published one novel independently, had a novella published in a collection with four other dear authors, and done much of the preparation for my second indie novel, Anon, Sir, Anon. In some ways it is hard to believe it has only been six months, seeing as I've been halfway around the world, got a job as a nanny, and worked at two summer camps in that period of time. Life has been full and beautiful and as I will be publishing Anon, Sir, Anon at the nine-month mark, I think it's time to celebrate Hobbit-wise by giving one of you a gift at this plummy half-dozen milestone.
(also, none of you got all five of the references of last post so I find myself disposed to be be generous. Lucky ducks, you!)
Beginning on August 14th and extending the week of its six month birthday, I will be hosting a giveaway! The winner of said giveaway will receive a copy of all my works in print as well as Eats Shoots And Leaves by Lynne Truss, a book most useful for those of us who find ourselves too liberal with grammatical errors. It'll be a lovely chance to win books you A) already love or B) would like to familiarize yourself with before you try to read anything else of my writing.
Whatever your case, I hope you will take this photo, share it on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, or your preferred method of social media, and spread the word about the giveaway! I cannot wait to choose a winner (already! I am easily excited) and I trust you'll have fun with the creative entries I have planned. I look forward to the week of the 14th! Cheers!
