My Thanksgiving Letter to YOU!


Dear Friends and Readers,

This year has been a crazy one with highs and lows. Thanksgiving is all about thinking about the highs, so I’m going to let the lows go. Some of those lovely highs were being asked to join the Insecure Writer’s Support Group to head the newsletter, starting my editing business, publishing Seismic Crimes and 30 Seconds Before, and signing a contract for Tsunami Crimes.

I have all of you to thank for getting me through the craziness of these highs (and especially the lows, but we’re not talking about those).

As a writer, you helped me to realize the amazing feeling of having people interested in my books. Something I had always dreamed about but wasn’t sure if I’d be blessed with. As a blogger, you made me feel as though my thoughts, words, and ideas were valuable and interesting. When I started writing at twelve, and created my blog five years ago, I had craved these things, hoped and wished for them, and now I am so very grateful you have given them to me; a gift I’ll always treasure.

For your selfless support, I thank you from the bottom of my heart. You sure know how to make a girl feel loved, supported, understood, and appreciated.

If I could give everyone a cookie (or a hunk of cheese to Crystal Collier), I would. Since I can’t, I hope this letter adequately shows my gratitude for these priceless gifts you’ve given me. I’m also giving everyone virtual hugs and sending wishes of success, health, and happiness.

Happy Thanksgiving!


XOXO,


Chrys Fey

  19. As I haven't posted a blog in a number of weeks, I was reading about the "cookie policy warning" for EU readers, so when I got to the last paragraph about you being unable to give us cookies, I had a chuckle. Happy Thanksgiving, Chrys.

  25. What a beautiful letter! A wonderful time of year to stop and try to focus on the highs (it can be hard not to focus on the lows). When I think of my highs over the past year the blogging world, authors, and readers and writers I have met are at the top of the list. Always nice to have the support of our friends to keep us up when we are feeling down.

    Love the picture with the letter too. :)
