Happy Thanksgiving!

This is one of my favorite holidays, as I get to spend it with family, friends and great food. Seriously, I love my grandmother’s cooking. I could only hope to be able to make it when I’m on my own.

I just want to say how thankful I am for all the above mentioned, and you guys! Seriously, I really appreciate every visit, read and comment that I get here and/or on social media. I love the conversations we get into.

Also, I want to give a special thank you to my Brasilian readers! America is 1st but Brasil is 2nd in viewership and I couldn’t be more appreciative!

So I just want to say, “Obrigado por todo o carinho. Eu fico muito feliz!” (I’d gotten help with the translation so please let me know if I didn’t say it right.)

With NaNoWriMo coming up I thought it might be good to supplement Becky’s How NOT to write a book in 30 days with a How TO write a book in 30 days post.

A little background on my credentials first …

In the last five years I have written 14 novels (each around 82,000 words). My latest book, Come Back To Me (out in paperback today!), took me 6 weeks to write.

I worked on it full time – about 7 hours a day, knocking out about 6000 words on average a day (an ability to touch-type helps!). I had a deadline from my publisher Pan Macmillan which is why I worked so fast. But actually, all my books take me about 6-8 weeks to write. I am lucky to have a lot of writing and screenwriting…
