On November 6, I posted Thanksgiving Gift: Gratitude on my personal blog, SlingWords.
The post was about my giving the Gift of Gratitude during the month of November.
This gift is for the people I love—family and friends—and the people in my professional life who support me and work with me toward a common goal. Of the latter, there are many since I've been in the writing business almost 40 years.
To family and friends, I wrote a card, detailing how thankful I am to have them in my life. Yes, I'm old school in that I think a handwritten card, mailed to the recipient is appreciated.
To those I know online, I also want to speak gratitude and appreciation. That brings me to this post.
Romance Gems Authors
How can I express in mere words, how much I appreciate the Authors of Romance Gems?
Ladies of Romance Gems, you are each a gift to me.
Without a doubt, these authors are some of the most talented authors with whom I've had the pleasure of working.
They blog each month, they support each other on social media, they write amazing books, and, best of all, they get along with each other. No prima donnas here.
I applaud them, and I want you to applaud them too—and read their books!
I'm thankful they are a part of Romance Gems. I appreciate them, their time, and their gifts.
Romance Gems Readers
Readers, I can only say, "Wow!"
We hoped we'd attract those who love romance novels as much as we do. Hurray, we did!
You read this blog, you visit us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. You buy our books, you pick up our free books when they're offered, and you enter our contests.
From the bottom of my heart, thank you. (You'll love the holiday book fair we're putting together, Santa's Book Shop.)
With gratitude and appreciation, I thank you. My cup of blessings runs over.
Wishing you all—authors and readers—a season of gratitude, appreciation, and giving thanks. I wish you a holiday that's safe and full of love.
If it's a video visit, be comforted in knowing you're keeping those you love safe.
