Thankful for Family and Friends – and a book giveaway to you!

I am grateful for my friends.

I’m one of those people who likes to be alone. I’m a writer, I suppose that’s par for the course. I like to ponder in my alone-ness. I’m good like that. I’m not especially social nor do I take enough time to hang out with friends.

But my friends and family are always there for me whether I’m paying attention or not. And I think that’s what amazed me most when I released my first book into the world at the end of October. The number of friends and family who rallied around the fact that I had published something and bought the darn thing was amazing.

I didn’t think anyone would really care very much about this little book. I mean, the time I took to write it was time away from family and friends, and yet everyone was excited for me.

It gave me that nice fuzzy feeling inside.  I love my friends and my family for all their support that they give me whether it’s while I’m writing, publishing or just sick with the flu.  I love you guys. Thanks for making me feel so very important. 🙂

A special Thank You to the Indelibles for hosting this great event!

To celebrate the joy of thanksgiving, I’m giving away an ebook and a paperback copy of Gangsterland to two thankful commenters.

What are you the most thankful for?

  4. I’m always thankful for family and friends, too. It’s good to have people you can count on.

    And I’m just thankful for the basics, too — I have a roof over my head, food in my stomach, and clothes on my back. Life is good.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog, and congrats on your recent book release as well! If you’re looking for reviewers, I’d be happy to feature you on my blog.
