- The marvelously supportive external group of authors and readers who cheer on me and my stories like the very best cheerleaders on the planet. There are so many amazing folks. From ones I’ve met online, to conferences, to in-person…and even those that started online and have become dear in-person friends. I’ve said this to my fabulous street team (The Pepper Shakers…they voted on their own name), I cannot imagine this writing journey without them!! The amount of encouragement, ideas, pick-me-ups, and, even being talked off figurative ledges at times (you know who you are), daily blesses and overwhelms me. It’s a remarkable byproduct of story creating and reaching out to folks beyond my little imaginary world. I have met SOOOO many wonderful people over the years!!!
I think nowadays, the connections we can make through online formats such as social media outlets and Zoom, has broadened the world for many authors who may have felt more isolated and sought connectivity beyond their own worlds. I’ve been incredibly thankful for the connection in so many ways, but particularly in the way it helped me build relationships and community.
Have you enjoyed connecting with authors and/or other readers? What about this online ability to connect have you enjoyed most?
In the spirit of celebration and gratitude, I’m sharing this wonderful GIVEAWAY!!! This particular prize is a fun one! FIVE prizes, to be exact. Check out the link below!!
