It’s almost #NaNoWriMo time — so grab my new book!

National Novel Writing Month, for those who have still miraculously never heard of it, is that special time of the year when all aspiring (and established!) novelists take to their keyboards, writing up a storm, with the goal of finishing an entire novel (50,000 words) in just one month.
