Governed on Goodreads

Governed by Whimsy has now been added to the Songs of the Amaranthine series page on Goodreads (thanks, Goodreads librarians!), so you can add it to your shelves. Again, this ISBN/edition is the solo digital edition. When the anthology comes out, it’ll have a different designator, and the (oh, so clever) title will be … Governed by Whimsy: The Anthology.

Anyone else doing NaNoWriMo this year? I’m officially logged in as … well, as me. Want to buddy up? I’ll be blitzing through the third book in the original series I keep mentioning. (Because the first is nearly ready for release, and the second has already been roughed in.) I make a decent cheerleader, and I’m always up for some word sprints! ::twinkle::
