Happy Thanksgiving!

In honor of Thanksgiving tomorrow, we at Sourcebooks Casablanca are sharing some of the blessing for which we're so grateful.

Shana Galen
I'm thankful for good health, good friends, and my wonderful family. I'm grateful to have the opportunity to do what I love--write!

Gina Conkle
I'm echoing Shana's thanks for good health, dear friends, and my loving family. Thanksgiving is special this year because it falls on my husband's birthday. He'll get some souped up exercise equipment (likely a rowing machine). That ought to go well with the pecan pies I'll feed him, right?

Mr. Conkle is one of those faithful exercisers. For years we planned to get the rowing machine, but put it off because "We need new tires" or "The hot water heater went kaput" happened. This year, Mr. Conkle will get his longed for gift.

I have so much to be thankful for, but I saw a post on facebook that about sums it up. I may paraphrase a bit:
I woke up. I had clothes to wear. I had food to eat. I had hot and cold running water and an indoor bathroom.
LOL. You didn't expect me to leave you without a smile on your face, did you?


I wish you a

 Terry Spear: I had Thanksgiving with my daughter and SIL early because they're going to see grandparents for turkey day. So we had cornish hens instead. Delicious!
 And that means that next, I'll be decorating for Christmas for the whole family to get together then! Oh, and yes, I'll be fixing a turkey breast on Thanksgiving to properly enjoy the day, while writing and editing, like usual!

So it's a festive time of year! Happy Thanksgiving!!

I'm so grateful for all the stories that comfort and delight and transport us through all the challenges of life.

As crazy as it seems, I am thankful for my health.  It has been a wild year and after having surgery about 4 weeks ago, I think things are finally good.  My doctor had warned me that I might not be able to have Thanksgiving dinner this year and I was a little devastated by that.  I am one of those crazy people who LOVES to cook a big feast like that and I don't want anyone helping.  Well, the good news is that I CAN enjoy it this year and even though there will only be five of us at the table, I'm cooking for twenty!
Happy Thanksgiving, Everyone!!

Our holiday started a little early, when Little Miss R and my mom made these turkey cookies this past weekend. Sure, we SHOULD have saved them until Thanksgiving, but...nah, there'll be enough other goodies that day.

Little Miss R is my baking buddy too, and we'll be making pies and looking forward to a meal with family. Hope your Thanksgiving holiday is excellent, however you choose to celebrate it.

My heart is full of gratefulness. I'm thankful I live in a country where I don't have bombs exploding around me, where I can walk down the street without having to show papers, where I can worship as I want and have freedom to write the kind of books I desire. In this year, I've seen three book releases. That's a lot and I'm extremely thankful for my readers who love what I'm doing. It's going to be cold many places on Thanksgiving Day. Enjoy a warm fire, a cup of something hot and curl up with a good book--if you're not in a coma from eating too much. I'll be one of those in a coma.

My debut book just released earlier this month and I am so thankful for seeing a dream come true. The support and encouragement has been amazing and I'm thankful for the wonderful team at Sourcebooks and the authors here on the blog who has welcomed me with open arms. Tomorrow I'm celebrating with family and friends, counting my blessings. Hope all the readers of the blog will have an opportunity to do the same.

I'm thankful that my family is here at home, all happy and healthy. You don't realize how important that is until you send your husband off to work one morning and the next time you see him is in the hospital. Yeah. I'm grateful for every hour since then (and beyond) that I still have him and my two sons.
