Today is one of those days when I wish I could enter my own giveaways 😀
For the next ten days – today through November 22nd – Reading Is My SuperPower is hosting the Thankful Hearts Giveaway, sponsored by TEN of your fave authors!
Each day, starting tomorrow, you’ll hear from a different author with a special message about thankfulness. But today, they’re all talking about how they’re thankful for YOU, their readers!!
G – I am thankful for my readers’ Great Sense (or should that be Senses??) of Humor! I love hearing when something in one of my books had made them laugh because I love stories that make me laugh 🙂
I – [I am] inspired by my reader’s interaction.
V – Voracious (yes, I realize this is an adjective and not a noun). I am thankful for the voracious readers of Christian fiction. You who devour the words God puts on our hearts to write and then encourage us in our unique and nontraditional calling of spreading God’s love and message of redemption through story. From the bottom of my heart, I thank you.
E – I love my readers, because they are so encouraging. In person or via email, in reviews or through Facebook messages, readers have encouraged me in countless ways. When I get discouraged and wonder why I’m pouring my heart into words on a screen, I remember my readers. My readers are why I write.
T – [I am] Touched (by your thoughtful notes and reviews!)
H – I am so thankful that readers would grant me the HONOR of picking my books out of all the published books available.
A – Anticipation. I’m so grateful for the way readers encourage me with their anticipation. Knowing that readers are waiting expectantly for that next book–really, for more story about characters they love–pushes me to do my best and take seriously this calling as a writer.
N – The word that came to me is “new” because I am so thankful to readers who are willing to take a chance on a new-to-them writer. It’s a brave risk, and it so blesses us authors.
K – K is for Kindness…I am so thankful for the kind hearts who have welcomed me and the stories I come with into their reading hearts. On the whole, the community of readers who have embraced me have been uber encouraging, bringing joy to my introverted heart, and giving me courage to continue to write. Thank you!
S – I’m giving thanks today about being here with these fabulous Christian authors! Thank you, Carrie, for hosting us as we praise our Lord for all the good things He has done. I love that I have the letter S. I went a little crazy with my idea. If you give a writer a letter… I’m so thankful for my Savior, the Son of the Living God, who loved us so much He sacrificed Himself and sealed us with His Spirit for our Salvation. He tends us gently as His beloved sheep, rejoices over us with singing, and makes His face to shine upon us. In return, I will take up His Sword which is His precious Word, and the shield of faith and do my best to be salt and light to a hurting world.
