THANKFUL AUTHOR BLOG ROUNDUP
Featuring Mickey J. Corrigan
Wow, where to begin? There's so much to be grateful for this year. There are all the usual things I too often take for granted: good health, loving family, wonderful home and rewarding work. Terrific friends. A safe place to live and no war, hunger, or violence in my personal life. How lucky I am to be able to sit here and say that. I should never take any of this for granted. Ever!
Then there are the special things I am grateful for this year. My wonderful publishers. My amazing editors. My fellow authors who are so supportive and enthusiastic. Writing is an isolated act. It can be tough to make yourself stay on track. Writing is hard, but selling books is even more difficult. We need each other to make this happen. To provide moral support and marketing assistance. We get one another because we are all struggling with the same issues. Reaching our readers. Making that happen while we still find the time to write.
I am so grateful for all the help I get from my fellow writers. People like Angela. Book reviewers and bloggers. I am also thankful for my writing group, Ink Well. My writer friends, who give me honest feedback. My early readers, including my husband and son, who laugh at my jokes and tell me my stories are worth reading.
And I'm thankful to people like you. Readers, writers, and supporters of the literary arts. You are the best. Thank you. And have a wonderful holiday!
