Thank you!

I believe in being grateful. I believe that I should stop what I’m doing periodically and feel a surge of gratitude for all that I have and for all that I’ve survived. And, frankly, for the joy of life. Gratitude saved me back when I found it very difficult to even get out of bed, so it’s a lesson I hope never to forget.

In the spirit of being grateful, I want you to know how much I’m grateful for you. I consider the people who comment on my blog to be friends. I may not respond to every comment, but I read every single one. I think of you constantly. You’re my ideal reader. You’re, in the words of social media, my tribe.

Next week I’m going to have a big newsletter drawing and I’ve planned on spending a small fortune in postage to seriously deplete my ever growing supply of books. I’m not kidding, I think they multiply. More than once I’ve gotten a double shipment from Avon and I just sigh. They are so generous and say, “Keep them,” and I think to myself, “Where?”

So, y’all, to say thank you I’m doing a special blog only drawing. Just put your name in the comments along with which book you want and I’ll draw names this weekend.

Here’s a list of the available books (if you’re a winner and I’ve run out of your choice of book I’ll offer you a second choice.)

Notice that I haven’t said how many winners there will be? (Cue evil laugh.) I’ll let you know later.

  1. If you are posting to Australia, I would love The Witch of Clan Sinclair as it would finish off that series for me. Thank you for the opportunity.

  2. What a thoughtful thing to do!! Thank you so much for thinking of us all. My first choice would be The Texan Duke, 2nd – When the Laird Returns. If you need a third, anything else is AOK!

    I eagerly read your blogs. Many times your thoughts echo mine. Thanks again for thinking of us.

  3. This is so thoughtful Karen. Bad timing for me since I’m actually visiting your neck of the woods (sort of). Lol. I’m in Galveston and I can’t remember which books I already have. I’m just going to say I’d be happy with recieving any of them. Thank you for being so nice to your readers and fans.

  4. It does feel good to clear some things out – I have trouble with that sometimes.

    I’d love a copy of The Witch of Clan Sinclair – Thanks for the offer!

  5. Autumn In Scotland sounds nice of course I would also like a try for To Wed A Heiress (or any audio book ) Thank you. Keep up the good work Karen !!! Glad you are around

  6. If I am a winner, I would like to receive To Wed An Heiress.

    Thanks so very much for your generous giveaways!

  7. Recently I have tried several times to post comments. You have written posts that made me want to respond.

    Unfortunately, my comments will not post. I am trying again. Here and Now. It is because I feel that for some reason the blog is shutting me down.

    I begin my daily prayers with thank you. When I am feeling in need, I remind myself of the fact that I am very blessed.

    Thank you for being the kind person you are and for sharing so much of yourself with us. Take care.

  8. In the past few weeks, I have tried many times to post a comment here. I have read your posts and wanted to insert my two cents many times.

    I agree with you about being grateful. The way I start my daily prayers is to say Thank you. And every time I believe I am in need, I am reminded that I have a life which is blessed in many ways.

    I love the idea of your book giveaway. It shows you are a kind woman.

    So, Thank You, Ma’am for being who you are.

  9. Thank you! Ivy Truitt….surprise me. Tickled and thankful for any of them.
    Appreciate your generosity.

    BTW, Kevin is settling in nicely & has Tallulah well in hand. 🙂

  10. I would love any of your books that needs a home. I have been reading your books, I think, since the 80’s or before and loved every one. I was using the library for them then. My address is:

    Please don’t stop writing! I often need an author I can trust with stories I can trust.

    • Thank you for your generosity, Karen. I haven’t posted lately as we are making preparations for retirement which includes moving. I am spending most days sorting and packing. There is always room for another book, though! I would love to have An Unlikely Governess on my bookshelf, or in a box to be moved, as the case may be!
