Random Act of Kindness BLITZ!

A smile. An encouraging word. A thoughtful gesture. Each day people interact with us, help, and make our day a bit brighter and full. This is especially true in the Writing Community.

Take a second to think about writers you know, like the critique partner who works with you to improve your manuscript. The writing friend who listens, supports and keeps you strong when times are tough. The author who generously offers council, advice and inspiration when asked.

So many people take the time to make us feel special, don't they? They comment on our blogs, re-tweet our posts, chat with us on forums and wish us Happy Birthday on Facebook.

Kindness ROCKS!

To commemorate the release of their book The Emotion Thesaurus, Becca and Angela at The Bookshelf Muse are hosting a TITANIC Random Act Of Kindness BLITZ. And because I think KINDNESS is contagious, I'm participating too!

**I am spreading the love today to Lindsey Lindsey Sablowski, who has supported me as a writer and gave me suggestions on how to make my writing much stronger. Lindsey Sablowski, for my RAOK, I will do an author interview to congradulate you on getting Cursed With Power published and signing a publishing with Old Line Publishing. Ashley Laster, thanks for the support and critiques in the past. Ashley, for my ROAK gift, I am going to critique the first three chapters of Shudder. Wendy Higgins, for being a good friend and for giving feedback back for  Land of Eden. (Now it is Departed Innocence. And trust me the old draft was cringe worthy). Wendy, for my ROAK gift, I will do an interview and a promotional posting on my blog for Sweet EvilAshley Maker spending the time to give feedback on Departed Innocence, taking the time and effort to do so. Ashley for my ROAK gift, I will critique the first three chapters of any novel.  Caitlin Elyse, thanks for the lovely conversations and for working on a book cover for Departed Innocence. I can't wait to finish reading Heaven Bound, Hell Hunted. And for those reading, please stop by and tell them how they awesome they are too--they deserve it!**
