Friends

Friends are great, aren’t they? They’re supportive, encouraging, and when you’re an author, they’re often your most dedicated cheer squad.

I mentioned in last week’s post about two friends who raced to inform me about an upcoming movie with eerily similar themes to my trilogy. Although it was sad to hear about it, I was grateful that they cared enough to tell me, especially the first one, who was so indignant about it that she wanted me to sue them! Not going to happen, but it was a nice thought.

They’re also the people who are the first to RSVP for any of my book launches and to share details about my books on their Facebook pages. They’re the ones who tell me not to give up when all this ‘author’ business seems a little bit too hard to keep going. They’re the ones who grasp at any detail about any new release, as though I’m the greatest author on the planet.

It’s humbling and wonderful that these friends stand by me and always believe in me, even when I don’t believe in myself. So to all my friends who have supported me, thank you so much for everything you do. I appreciate you and love you and thank you for helping me through those times when times were tough. You’re awesome! 🙂
