I Miss You Blogfest is Friday, November 16. We’re paying tribute to the bloggers we miss and the ones we would miss if they were to vanish. Excellent time to show appreciation of your fellow blogger buddies. Co-hosted by Andrew Leon, Matthew MacNish, and me.
This Wednesday is the next posting date for the Insecure Writer’s Support Group! Mark your calendar.
And either Wednesday or Friday I will have some blogfest tips for you.
Saturday I received a package containing a copy of Nancy Thompson’s book, The Mistaken. She even signed it for me and wrote the most wonderful words:
And look! I had the honor of reviewing an early copy and my quote made it into the book:
My name, on the first page with the awesome Jennifer Hillier and best seller Kevin O’Brien. Whoa!! That’s even more exciting than my name on the cover of my own books. Thanks so much for the opportunity, Nancy. (And if you haven’t picked up her book yet, get it. The Mistaken is awesome.)
I’m Thankful for my Readers Blog Hop Tara and VikLit.
Where do I begin?
I’m thankful for the readers of my books. When my first book came out, I thought I’ve be lucky if a hundred people read it. I never envisioned that number would swell to five digits. Thanks to everyone who has purchased and read my books. You’ve spurred me to keep writing and I’m honored so many want to share the adventures of Byron. Hopefully the third and final book doesn’t disappoint.
I’m thankful for those who’ve sacrificed time as my critique partners and test readers. They’ve suffered through my crappy dialogue and poor grammar! Special thanks to the delightful and energetic Cassie Mae, whose input was not only excellent, it was hilarious! Thanks to the very thorough and thoughtful Rusty Webb, who critiqued my last two manuscripts. His input before I began writing CassaStorm led to one of the coolest characters I’ve ever created. (Not to mention the fact that he’s damn funny as well!) And thanks to Jeffrey Beesler who has also braved two of my manuscripts. You guys made all the difference in the world!
Finally, I’m thankful for my blogger buddies and followers. Without you guys, I’d just be talking to myself, and that’s a lonely way to blog! The Ninja Army is my family and this blog the kingdom. And according to the Bible, the Kingdom represents deliverance, righteousness, joy, peace, justice, healing, and wholeness. That is what I want all of you to find here. I may be the captain, but I’m not the ruler – you are. Thank you for being a part of this Ninja family.
