Let’s Talk with Terry Odell

Being Thankful
By Terry Odell

Because today is Thanksgiving Day here in the US, I imagine most of us are busy with holiday preparations, a big meal, maybe some football, time with family. Then there’s Black Friday (although you won’t catch me anywhere near a store), and Cyber Monday.

But no matter where you are or how you celebrate, it’s a good time to stop and take stock of what you’re thankful for.

As an author, I’m thankful for my readers. Knowing I’ve brought a few hours of escape or pleasure to someone I don’t know is humbling and gratifying.

So, for my turn here at Let’s Talk, I’d like to say thanks to readers with a giveaway.

I have books; some new, some gently read, that I’ve acquired at conferences and from judging contests. I have bling from some of those conferences as well. I’ll randomly select two winners. One gets some books, the other gets some bling.

And because everyone’s super busy, here’s a link to a free super short story.
