Some of you will no doubt remember the blog "Code Name Nora", written by Mary McPhee from her retirement home. I loved its unpredictable take on the subject, the details, the narrator's "voice", and her lively writing, and followed it with great interest. But then it ended and eventually I stopped hearing from the author - I've wondered (and worried a little) about what happened to her.
Well, on my previous post, Mary left a comment! She's well, and still writing novels - she says she stopped blogging in order to concentrate on her longer written works, and has published ten novels - including Code Name Nora - via Amazon Kindle. Her latest novel is currently in the nomination process for Kindle Scout, a new program, and she asks readers for some help:
My book has--had--thirty days to get "nominated" by readers as something they'd like to read. There are 15 days left in my nomination period. After that, Kindle will decide if it wants to publish my book by their publishing arm. It brings with it a small advance and help with marketing.
I haven't got a whole lot of nominations because I'm not so active on the internet any more. Or with this blog. So I decided to post something about the book here in the hopes I can get a few more "noms." If you read this, and feel so inclined, here's the link to go to:
I've gone there and nominated her book, and I hope some of you will too - it takes just a few minutes and if she is one of the winners, you'll receive a free copy as well as giving her a well-deserved boost. I certainly want to be writing and creating if and when I make it to my later years; I admire Mary and wish her all the best.
