Hi Wickeds. It’s the biggest Thankful Thursday of all–the one before Thanksgiving. Tell us what you’re thankful for and then reach down deep and offer our readers something extra special for the giveaway this month.
Julie: I’m grateful for NaNoWriMo this month. The goal is to write 50K words in the month of November, and I’m making strides. Being part of NaNo has given me a community of writers who are doing the same thing, a writing practice that will stick past this month, and the opportunity to visit Goosebush again. This month I’ll send someone my Theater Cop mysteries, both of them.
Edith/Maddie: I’m thankful to have found a new independent editor who focuses on historical novels. She gave me some great insights on my new project – and a boost about what I already had on the page. And I’m grateful my hand is healing enough to bake pies next week, even if it’s only for the two of us (sniff). I’ll send the winner one of my special Author aprons and a signed copy of Murder at the Taffy Shop.
Jessie: I am so thankful for my marriage. My husband was on the road almost all of the time from May of 2018- March of 2020 and I really missed him. When he started working from home this past spring I wondered if it would be difficult to readjust to having so much time together instead. It turns out that even after all these years we still have fun together, love to accomplish big goals together and even to spoil our dog together. I really could not ask for more! I am giving away my latest Beryl and Edwina mystery, Murder Comes to Call to the winner!
Liz: I am grateful for the family I get to spend Thanksgiving with this year – my boyfriend and his kids. We have a lot of fun together and it’s nice to feel like a real part of the family. I’m also grateful that my 2020 writing deadlines will be (mostly) complete by early December! So thankful for where my life is right now. I will be giving away a hot-off-the-press copy of my new Cat Cafe Mystery, Whisker of a Doubt.
Sherry: Reading what all of you are thankful for made me happy. NaNoWriMo, great editors, husbands, family — I’m thankful for all of those things too. I’m also thankful for Zoom which allowed me to spend a wonderful few hours with two friends I adore. It also made it possible to attend a couple of author events for my friend Ed Aymar whose new book, They’re Gone (written as E. A. Barres) came out this week. I’ll give away an ARC of Absence of Alice and a copy of From Beer to Eternity. Happy Thanksgiving to all of you!
Barb: I’m grateful to be home and settled after being away for a month. (Though I also enjoyed being away.) I’m trying to shop early and therefore I’m getting excited about the holidays. I love Thanksgiving, even an untraditional one. I’m giving away a “holiday package” of the three novella collections I’ve contributed to along with authors Leslie Meier and Lee Hollis, Eggnog Murder, Yule Log Murder, and Haunted House Murder, along with a Snowden Family Clambake tote bag.
Readers: What about you? Leave a comment about what you’re thankful for this month or just say “hi” to be entered for all this great stuff.
