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?!)Β 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!

      Thanks, Amy. And ditto about meeting you on LJ. I’m so glad I didn’t lose all my LJ friends when I came over to wordpress, altho I still miss that whole community.

    You are the best!

      Good idea on waiting for the chocolate. I’m saving cupcake ordering for after lunch, hoping maybe they’ll have samples!

    I’m so excited for you!

    And I want to say this, as someone who has never met you, except online, but counts you as a friend, I think you have such good support for one reason, and that is YOU. You are so generous with your time, experience and wisdom, you are so open, warm and humorous, not to mention a wonderful writer and good human being, that you simply deserve it.

    Every success with your book launch! Looking forward to hearing about it.


    • beckylevine says:

      Claudine, I totally count you as a friend, too. That’s what’s so amazing to me about this online stuff–it’s NOT cold and distant. No way. At least not with writers!

      And thank you!! πŸ™‚


  10. Happy official launch day!

    You have totally embraced the online world and it has hugged you right back!
