A phone ringing in the middle of the night always leaves me terrified. Heart pounding. Cold sweat. The works. Last night was no exception, although in the end, the news wasn’t tragic as much as worrisome. Already the week feels slightly off-kilter. The kids are home from school starting Wednesday. Family begins arriving tomorrow, and soon after, life will devolve into complete chaos. Fun chaos, but still.
Happy Thanksgiving to my fellow Americans. I may not be back to say that on Thursday.
Good news on the writing front. Carina has offered on another novella of mine—always gratifying. And the collaboration I’ve been involved with may soon find a home as well. Also, of course, today is release day for 40 Souls to Keep
All in all, I have a lot to be thankful for. Every year on the Wednesday before Thanksgiving, my kids and I help at our township food bank, preparing and distributing a holiday meal. The kids love it. It’s gratifying because their efforts produce tangible results.
Thanking people who support my writing career isn’t as simple. I often wish I could give something tangible, but most of the time all I can do is say thank you. Thanks to the readers who read and review. No work is universally loved, and I respect that. Thanks, especially, to those who have been with me for the long haul. I rely on you more than you realize.
Here’s a small thing I can do. Give books. If you’re interested in reading 40 Souls to Keep
, let me know here in the comments. (I’ve enabled anonymous commenting for the day.) I’ll pick two people to win a free copy this evening, around 7:00pm EST.
Thanks again, everyone! Have a wonderful week.
