This Week in the Blogs, November 12 – 18, 2020

By Shelley Sturgeon

Hard to believe that we’re already in the last half of November. Where did the time go? If you’re participating in NaNoWriMo this year, how’s it going?

Still time to submit your e-book covers to our contest for November (that will be published in late December). All the info you need can be found here. Don’t miss October’s e-Book Cover Design Awards post here on Monday, November 30th.

And, check back here next week for our latest edition of Self-Publishing: Carnival of the Indies.

Be well, stay safe (and warm if winter’s settling in where you are) and I’ll see you back here in two weeks.
