A Time for Being Thankful

P1090204

I’m coming to the end of a beautiful fall month of having fun with family while my blog has ticked along in fine style. I have some big thanks to send out.

First off, to my wonderful guests – Patrick O’Scheen, author of Dreamer and Seer; Laekan Zea Kemp, author of Breathing Ghosts and Kevin Brennan, author of Yesterday Road. Having these three authors on my blog, discussing their work and the self-publishing industry, has been a real treat. I’ve had the chance to read three thought-provoking books, learn a few things and I’ve gained a number of new followers thanks to my guests. I’ve had a great experience opening up my blog to other voices. I highly recommend the practice.

Next, a huge thank you to Carolynn Arnold over at Celebrating Authors for the author interview she did for me and the great twitter traffic that has resulted from that post. (Which, by the way, is still going on!) Please pop over and check out her site and my interview.

I want to send out a big thank you to The Fussy Librarian. Yesterday, Disappearing in Plain Sight was one of the book selections featured on The Fussy Librarian’s daily email. This new site is connecting self-published authors with readers. Indie authors often go on about the difficulties we have getting our books out in front of readers. Our blogs, Facebook author pages, and Twitter feeds are jam-packed with other authors (and that’s great, don’t get me wrong) but we often wonder how to connect with readers. Well, this new site is solving that problem. Why not pop over and sign up for their daily email alerts. You let them know what you like to read and every day they pick a few books for you.

And thanks to all the bloggers I follow for your patience. I’ve had time here and there to check in with some of you but I haven’t seen all the great posts I wanted to.

Finally, thank you to my two beautiful granddaughters for making this month fly by in a whirl of fun and delight.

    [ Smiles ] Nice photos.

    I hope that you didn’t have to go too close to the bee hive in order to get that wonderful snapshot!

    Wow Fran. Emma looks like she has grown more than our beans did this summer. I’m waiting for the car to be serviced and then onto the ferry boat. Great photos and a wonderful tribute post to some of your fellow authors and reviewers. I’ll check out the links. See you soon. Bruce
