Thanksgiving is a time to give thanks!

I know it sounds hokey, but every year at Thanksgiving, I really do think about all that I have to be thankful for.  This year is no different.

I am thankful for, first and foremost, my family: my wonderfully supportive husband, my two incredible children Jessica and Zachary and my granddaughter Elena.  All of you bring so much love and laughter into my life.

I am thankful for my smart, energetic and ever curious staff who keep their sense of humor and continue to contribute so much to our company during challenging times.  I am especially thankful for my superb business partner, Miriam, who offers her wisdom and good counsel every single day.

I am thankful for my clients because we’re able to work together to bring out the best in each other.  Without each and every one of you, we wouldn’t and couldn’t continue to thrive.

I am thankful for all the people I work with on the other side—those colleagues at the publishing houses who are so devoted to helping writers be the best they can be.  Many of us came into this business because of the people who participate in it—we all care so much about good books and spreading the message about the importance of reading.

And finally, I am thankful for you, our readers—without you we wouldn’t be in business today.  You are the creative backbone of what we do.

What are you thankful for?

  1. In this economy, I’m thankful that I have a job that pays the bills and still leaves me time to pursue my writing. I’m thankful that I’ve managed to get two books published despite the odds and have an excellent agency representing me. And I’m thankful that pretty much everybody in my family gets along (well, usually).

    I’m thankful that in difficult times of change, you’re drawn to innovation and creativity, modeling the attitude we all must have. Happy Thanksgiving to everyone at the agency.

    For my job, in the current crisis. I live in Spain, and unemployment is at 30% here, and rising. For young people, it´s apparently even going up to 40%.
    For the flat I moved into recently. After roughing it for three years in “temporary” accomodation, I´m fully enjoying my new home.
    Writing-wise, I´m thankful for the support I´m getting from my writing instructor, who reads every new 10,000-word installment of my novel-in-progress and provides me with very useful and encouraging feedback.
