Since this week is Thanksgiving, the authors of Romance Writers Weekly are sharing what we are thankful for this year. Ahead of me on the tour is Raine Balkera and I hope you’ve visited her post.
I’m most thankful for my family, our health, gainful employment and a roof over our heads. As well as living in a free country and eternally indebted to those who serve and protect us.
With regard to my author life, this year brought new and exciting events for which I am thankful and wowed. In January, the Romance Writers Weekly blog group formed. Usually, I’m a watch and see kinda girl, but I dove in the first week with the rest of the initial members and have been amazed how much I’ve learned from blogging with them and from being a part of such an awesome group.
In May, Lyrical/Kensington offered me a contract for my contemporary romance novel, Hot as Blazes. This has also been an amazing experience with all those at Lyrical Kensington and my awesome editor/psychologist, Penny Barber. She’s probably happy she’s almost done with me 😉
Usually we have Thanksgiving with my husband’s family, but this year his father’s health issues prevent a gathering. I’m no chef, but I do make a mean lasagne which will be our entree this year. Hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving! Now it’s time to pass this Thanksgiving-a-thon over to Kim Handysides.
