Thankful Thursday: Friends
Tomorrow is my launch day. I’ll post early next week about how it goes & what I did. Hoping husband’s back heals enough so he can sit comfortably in a chair while we go out to dinner to celebrate!
Anyway, I just wanted to take a quick minute to say thank you to everybody. Yes, you. And, you. The wonderful bloggers who have interviewed/will interview me and posted/will post my guest blogs this month. The people who are setting up the contests & encouraging people to enter to win a copy of my book. The people on Facebook & Twitter who I’ve never met physically, but who (whom?!) I count as friends & who are sending me notes about bookstore sightings & online-order deliveries. My local friends–writing & otherwise–who keep telling me congratulations and giving me hugs and even squealing with me. Everyone at Writer’s Digest for working so hard and adding their own brilliance to the book, not to mention really making me feel like one of their team.
Tomorrow, my book will be official. I already have a few stacks of it in my office. And that’s really, really cool. But, you know, I could be celebrating this launch alone. I could be holding the book and patting myself on the back and saying, “Well done.” And it just wouldn’t be as exciting or as intense or as “loud” as it’s been, even so far!
And to any of my blog readers who are just venturing out into this online world of writers, let me tell you what an incredible place it is-more support and encouragement than you’d think possible. Incredible.
So, just…thank you. So, so much!
