Take a second to think about writers you know, like the critique partner who works with you to improve your manuscript. The writing friend who listens, supports and keeps you strong when times are tough. The author who generously offers council, advice and inspiration when asked.
So many people take the time to make us feel special, don't they? They comment on our blogs, re-tweet our posts, chat with us on forums and wish us Happy Birthday on Facebook.
To commemorate the release of their book The Emotion Thesaurus, Becca and Angela at The Bookshelf Muse are hosting a TITANIC Random Act Of Kindness BLITZ. And because I think KINDNESS is contagious, I'm participating too!
**I am Blitzing Janet Elizabeth Jones who is an author, artist, graphic designer, web designer, and friend. For more than eight years, she has faithfully encouraged me, and no matter how things were going with her own career -- good or bad -- she has always taken time to help me with mine. As my RAOK, I am going to tweet a link to her book Incubus, which is one of my favorite reads, every day for a month. I hope it brings her new readers and introduces many new people to her universe of amazing vampires and other creatures.Meical rocks! To help me make this gift to Janet special, will you join her very quiet announcement group The Night Raven Enclave? Thank you. She will be amazed, as she has no idea I'm doing this! There are many for whom and to whom I am profoundly grateful. Rather than try to name them (because I would miss some due to my own memory), I pledge to work to let them know I appreciate them in every way I can. I hope you'll do the same with folks who are special to you.
Do you know someone that you'd like to randomly acknowledge? Don't be shy--come join us and celebrate! Send them an email, give them a shout out, or show your appreciation in another way. Kindness makes the world go round. :)
Becca and Angela have a special RAOK gift waiting for you as well, so hop on over to The Bookshelf Muse to pick it up.
