Wanna know what I'm doing in November?

Provided the world doesn't end on Election Day:

And this is what I shall be writing:

Hell Raiser

Annika Dante's mother always said she came from the angels. Nik just never realized she meant that literally.

Born with an uncanny knack for finding things, Nik's building quite a reputation for herself as professional supernatural scavenger hunter. So when Sinjin Charles knocks on her door, asking her to find something called the Ashes of Nirgali, it seems like just another job. Until he triples her asking price. Without being asked.

One run-in with a pack of demon dogs and two seriously injured sidekicks later, Nik is ready to give the money back and call the whole thing off. Until there's another knock on her door and all Hell breaks loose.

At least, that's what the woman claiming to be the angel Ramiel says will happen if Nik doesn't find the Ashes before the other scavengers Sinjin has hired do. And there's no backing out, she says, since Nik is Heaven's best chance of averting an apocolypse.

So, armed with uncanny intuition, inhuman luck and a wisecracking angel sidekick, Nik Dante sets out to save the world.

After all, it is the only planet with chocolate.

Oh, but it gets better! Yes, indeed...also included in this little tale:

A Drag Queen detective agency
Breaking into an occult museum

Oh, yes. This will be amazing.

Sounds good! You know, I'm working on a novel, and I forgot all about NaNoWriMo. You're right--I'm all about the election! And you're right that there's so much more to life. Thanks for the reminder, and I can't wait to read what you've got!

Mine, incidentally, is a post-apocalyptic dystopian novel with a bit of steampunk in diary form. Because the world needs more of those.

The world DOES need more of those! I agree. If you're on the NaNo website, I'm Xanna. Look me up and we can be writing buddies ;)
