Thanks to you…

Posted on: November 27, 2009

Yesterday, as my family gathered around the table to count our blessings, each of us took a moment to express what we were most grateful for: Good health, employment, the overcoming of difficult trials and the recognition of accomplishments large and small. My husband and I had something new to add to our lists this year. He offered his thanks to all the wonderful people who have helped usher my novel into the world, and I gave my thanks to every person who has bought the book.

Whether you loved it, hated it or simply shrugged and said, “meh!” after reading Ice Song, I am deeply grateful and honored that you chose my book. Every sale is valuable and meaningful to me. It is a recognition of my years of struggle, striving and survival. I am honored that you, dear reader, have taken the time to sit with me and invest your precious hours to hear my tale, and for that I thank you. Blessings to you and yours as we move into the season of short days and long nights. I hope that your winter is chock-full of good stories, loving friends and family, and pie, glorious pie.

Funny how a slice of pie and a desire to engage the reader can keep this writer chained to he computer.

Any time I receive a comment — postive or negative — about any of my writing, I think: Wow, someone spent their time reading my words. I am truly thankful. It’s rewarding, reaffirming and is just enough incentive to propel me to keep at it.

So, I’ll return to my computer later today, armed with a slice of French apple pie and a dolp of whipped cream to begin revision number 4, or 5 or is it 6.
