Earlier today, here on Blogger, as a way of ringing in 2017's month of November, I posted a poem about the eleventh month of the year. It is written by the poet/humorist, Thomas Hood.
However, I hope Hood's poem is wrong about this year's month of November, as I'm certainly in need of a few yes-es; and so is Cam, my female cardinal. She can seen in the picture directly above, where she is posing in my urban garden.
As you may know, Cam, like yours truly is a writer, and I've helped her write and publish the book, Words In Our Beak, Volume One (WIOB V_1). Up until now, the book has only been available in digital as well as softcover format. But yesterday, which was Halloween, a treat was delivered to my home: the hardcover version of WIOB V_1, and is featured in the image directly below.
But progress is being made and, with this onset of November occurring today, which also happens to be National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo), Cam and I are excited to announce that not only do we have this news re WIOB V_1, we have completed volume two of our book series and have also submitted it to Chris Deatherage for reformatting. Additionally, Cam and I have agreed that while he does this, we will work on volume three, for what could be a better time to do this than NaNoWriMo.
Now, before I go any further, let me remind readers that day one of this month is associated with a holiday regarding writers.
Cam and I truly hope that anyone reading this post will consider buying their friend (or friends) any version of Words In Our Beak Volume One. She and I could certainly use some yes-es in this month of November, a month that the poet, Thomas Hood refers to as being a month no-es in his poem, NOvember.
