They are some of the things that authors are thankful for.

I’m also thinking this blog title could be a movie.

What do you think?

Picture it: Judge Judy presides over a case where Channing Tatum is charged with drinking bourbon while wearing Jimmy Choo’s and tossing Cheetos at Ryan Ghosling. Yes? No?

Perhaps that could be a blog post for another day, but this week it’s all about YOU. Yes. YOU.

It goes without saying that I (as well as my fellow authors) are grateful for our families, friends and our creative gift.

We are also extremely thankful for all of YOU book lovers; readers, bloggers, librarians, book sellers.

We are happy to welcome you all to the READER APPRECIATION EVENT, gifting books in a variety of genres.

    So thanks to all the writers/authors out there who spend hours and hours crafting and telling their stories; who don’t give up when the rejection letter comes; who continue to improve their story when the editor makes suggestions; and who stick in there until the story reaches the reader!
