I am so pleased to have this opportunity to express my thanks to all of you who share in the life of indieBRAG—those I work with and the authors and the readers I work for.
Books and reading have been a great gift to me and have made my life better. Those who know me know that I am a history fanatic! I love non-fiction (Hamilton!), historical fiction and, yes my weakness, historical romance. In the very beginning of indieBRAG, before we had the over 250 readers around the world, I needed to be a reader for any number of books that most often weren’t historical in nature. I have read paranormal, steampunk (which I had never heard of), thrillers and mysteries—probably every genre—and I fell in love with a whole new world of books. My horizons have been broadened and my life enriched.
I am thankful that authors and readers alike have embraced the need that indieBRAG provides. I think we are doing a great job in shining a light on books that deserve it and we are working hard to find new ways to help in this endeavor.
Every day I “chat” with my many author and reader friends. They share their joys and their sorrows and allow me to share mine. I have learned about their families and their travels. I have even had the great good fortune to meet some of these treasured friends in person.
Who could possibly have a better job than I do—spending every day surrounded by books and chatting with my many friends all around the world?
I do not take your trust and friendship lightly—it means a great deal to me and I am pleased to I have this opportunity to tell you how very thankful I am.
Thanksgiving here in the United States is a pretty big deal—a major holiday and my favorite. It is a time centered around family and, of course, great food! It is not every year that our far-flung family can gather for this special time but they are always at the table in my heart.
You can be sure that on November 24th Bob and I will be giving thanks for all of you and looking forward to the future sharing your wonderful books with the world.
