Being Thankful – Romance Writers Weekly

PrintIt’s that time of year again! Unless you’re Canadian, in which case you’ve already done this. Or if you’re neither American nor Canadian, in which case you get to hear all about our sumptuous feasts while waiting for Chrismahanukwanzika to roll around.

Anyway, as I was saying, it’s the time of year when many of us stop for a moment and assess the things for which we feel thankful.
Friends, family and loved ones.
The new job.
That awesome car.
Those amazing cookies.

We at RWW are no different. We’re each asking ourselves “what am I thankful for?” Nina Mason just shared her gratitude with you, so it’s my turn. Since I’m last on the blog tour today, I’m going to cheat a little.

This year, I am grateful for the (man and) women of Romance Writers Weekly. I didn’t know many of these people four months ago but they welcomed me – an unpublished author – into their fold with open arms. It’s impossible to accurately calculate everything that I have learned from these folks. They’re some of the most generous, kind, talented, and laugh-out-loud funny people that I’ve ever known. I am especially grateful to the other half of my brain, Sarah Hegger, for inviting me to join.

I’m also very thankful for the support of you guys, my readers. Without your encouragement, I never would have taken these baby steps into publishing. I can’t remember who coined the term Xiomaniacs, but you have all certainly lived up to the name. So, thank you!

If you want to start at the beginning of this love fest, head over to Sarah‘s blog and hop on through.

Happy Thanksgiving!



  1. I love your mind, Xio. You made me giggle today. And I hope your holiday is a great one. So glad to have you in RWW! XOXO
