As Thanksgiving arrives, we all stop to ponder on the things we are thankful for. I try to make it a habit of thinking of things I am thankful for on a daily basis (blame it on my life coaching background), but sometimes life gets in the way. Today I want to say thanks to all of you. I started off my author journey unsure of what to expect from it. All I knew was that I had a story to write. When I decided to publish, I thought- cool, knock another thing off my bucket list. Well, was I ever surprised.
The support I’ve received has left me speechless. My family has been understanding, some even thinking it’s the coolest thing ever. My friends have been there to hear my story ideas, beta read, and just tell me how awesome this journey is. And without some of those friends, I don’t think I’d be where I am today. I mean, seriously, I owe some of these ladies way more than the occasional drink I buy them- from help choosing cover images, to designing teasers (the million different designs I make before choosing the perfect one), and even editing. The support doesn’t go unacknowledged.
I’ve also met so many amazing people along the way. My fellow authors who have been there for me and helped answer some of my silliest questions (because there’s no such thing as a stupid question right?) THANK YOU! We’re in this together, and it has been a pleasure meeting each and every one of you.
The bloggers who work day and night to get our books out there to readers and help promote us selflessly- WOW. You all rock! I’ve recently had to contact a lot of blogs to help spread our Black Friday sale and sign up for my cover reveal. I was nervous about having to ask them to sign up for two things during the same time. I thought, Here she goes again asking for something. Well, they did not hesitate to sign up for both. Thank you for your kind support and continuous encouragement. It means the world to this small, indie author.
I am grateful for you, my readers, for taking a chance and reading my book. For believing in my words, and allowing them (I hope) to take you on a journey, not only of romance, but of life lessons. I promise to continue bringing you more stories to read!
I hope all of those in the US have a wonderful Thanksgiving with their loved ones. Those of you out of the US, well, it’s almost the weekend! Happy Thursday to all! ❤
