A Time to Give Thanks

For those of us in the United States, this week we'll be celebrating Thanksgiving, where we take time to give thanks for all the good things in our lives (and eat lots of food, and for one day we don't worry about how many calories those foods contain).

This year I'm very thankful for the growth and success of our company. I'm thankful for our wonderful authors, who write such great stories. And I'm thankful for our staff—the editors, the cover artists, etc—who work so hard on preparing those stories for publication. But I'm most thankful for you—our readers—because without you, Beachwalk Press wouldn't exist.

I've asked some of our authors to share what they're thankful for this year…

M. A. Stacie: I'm thankful for my hubby and three amazing boys. And my life would be boring without my magnificent friends.

Tamaria Soana: I'm thankful for family and friends!

Ashlynn Monroe: I'm thankful for my family, my friends, and the fact that I'm able to do something I love (writing). There's no better feeling than knowing the thing that makes me happy gives someone else an escape from their everyday worries.

Sidda Lee Tate: I'm thankful for the wonderful support I receive from my family.

Kaylie Newell: This season, I'm thankful for so many things. Family, wonderful friends, our health. I'm also thankful for my brand new writing career—something I've dreamed of since I was knee high to a grasshopper :) I'm thankful for my publisher and amazing editor. And I'm especially thankful for new readers who decided to take a chance and pick up a book by an unknown author this year. Not just my books, but all of my fellow new authors' stories. What a gift that is, and one I'm incredibly lucky to have.

Ella Jade: I have a lot to be thankful for this year. I have a wonderful husband and two beautiful, happy, and healthy children. My boys are my world, and I'm grateful to share my life with them. I'm also appreciative of the readers and friends I've picked up this year through my writing. My stories have always been a hobby. I've been getting lost in my plots and characters for years, but to finally be able to share my creations with all of you as an author is a dream come true. Thank you for taking this journey with me. I wish all of you a happy and blessed Thanksgiving Day.

Pepper Anthony: This year, I am particularly appreciative of my excellent health. Last year I was diagnosed with uterine cancer. I went through surgery, five months of chemo, and some icky radiation treatments. While I did very well with most of the treatments, I did develop what is known as "chemo brain". My thought processes got foggy and my creative flow just kind of dried up. As an artist and writer, that was just about the most distressing part of the whole thing. I was afraid that I might be among the 40% of cancer patients who do not recover their full cognitive abilities following chemo. Happily, that has not been the case. Not only did my recent CT scans show "no evidence of disease", but my mind has fully recovered too. The human body is an amazing, resilient hunk of stuff. This Thanksgiving, celebrate your good health along with me!

Lacey Wolfe: What I'm thankful for has been on my mind a lot lately. And the one thing I keep coming back to is my husband. When we found out I was pregnant with my son (who is now 8), he agreed to let me stay home and raise our children. Both my children are now in school and instead of telling me to go get a job that brings in a steady paycheck, he still lets me stay home and write all day. He never says anything if the house is a mess or the laundry is washed but in dire need of being folded. He listens to me complain as well as gets excited about my accomplishments. I've been with my husband for 11 & 1/2 years and I couldn't imagine spending my life with anyone else.

Mary Wehr: Although I'm thankful for my good health and having a loving, thoughtful husband by my side for the past thirty-three years, this Thanksgiving is going to be very, very special. Beachwalk Press came into my life and my life-long dream of becoming a published author has come true. Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!

Patricia Bates: Gosh, there's so many things I'm thankful for. My family—including my wonderful son. He's the biggest miracle in my life and a constant source of inspiration and joy. My writing—the ability to share some of my creativity with others. And the fact that I have amazing publishers. I've been truly blessed to have so many wonderful contacts in this industry and I'm extremely thankful for the chances I have.

Stephanie Beck: 2012 brought lots of challenges, but I'm more thankful than ever. This year, I'm especially grateful for:
* My nephew Noah–born five weeks early, but doing great and safe at home with his mama and daddy who love him
* Nine years with my wonderful husband
* My three beautiful, healthy, loving children
* An exciting year of writing–and ambition to make next year even better
* My home with space for my kiddos to grow
* My church family who welcome us every day and share their joys
Happy Thanksgiving!

Tabitha Rayne: I am thankful for the creativity of human beings—seeing or experiencing something that someone has made inspires, sustains, and moves me. I am even more thankful that they share it. I'm thankful for most everything—love, health, joy, and even for the hard times as they make the good times more precious. But most of all, I'm thankful for fizzy astro belts (a very special candy) and good coffee.

Tara Mills: I love Thanksgiving. That’s when my three boys come home for a visit. My husband makes the turkey (a buttery champagne basted, croissant stuffed bird to die for), and I have an excuse to pop the first cork early and make mimosas for breakfast too. We crank the tunes and dance around as soon as there are signs of life from the bedrooms. After two pots of coffee are polished off, someone will suggest playing a game; it could be darts, ping pong, or a lively board game. Later, we'll take a hike through the woods with the three dogs. This year we'll have our new grandson coming up too. He's just four months old now. There's always time for lounging in the living room with your nose in a book or your Nook. We're a family of readers. Or my daughter-in-law will start a crossword puzzle and call out to everyone for help. Finishing becomes a group effort. But our boys have to earn their delicious dinner, and the alcohol that follows, by splitting and stacking firewood first. I love their ruddy cheeks when they come back inside, carrying the fresh clean smell of autumn with them.

And now, we want to know what YOU are thankful for. Everyone who leaves a comment will have their name placed in a drawing. On November 30th we will randomly draw four names, and those people will win a Beachwalk Press eBook of their choice. So don’t be shy—tell us what you’re thankful for!
