2015 & 2016 has been extremely challenging years for my family and I, as I know it has been for many others. I am deeply humbled and apologize for the effect it has had on my blog efficiency and Giveaways. I can only promise that will do everything in my power to not allow that to happen this year or ever again! I appreciate how so many have forgiven my lack of efficiency and my problems and still faithfully support me on my site.
I cannot tell you how much your support on my blog site means to me. Although I am not always able to answer all of your comments, I do enjoy reading them and will answer as often as I can. You are all so great!
This year we are going to start implementing a few “live” interviews integrated with written ones. We have run into a few “glitches” but hope to have them “ironed out” soon. We hope our fourth year -starting in June- will offer more attractions still. THERE WILL ALSO BE MANY MORE CHILDREN’S BOOK REVIEWS AND GIVEAWAYS! We are doing all we can to come up with more ideas. We hope by year Five, there will be a SUPER exciting Blogversary month! We will be working towards that all this year!
Along with all of you AWESOME “Followers”, I need to thank so many equally AWESOME AUTHORS, TOUR HOSTS and PUBLICISTS! They all help in so many ways with Giveaways and Promotions on my site. I could not succeed without them! There are so many talented individuals in this world, it never ceases in “blowing my mind” what they can accomplish in writing (many at such young ages), art, motivation, effective communication, creativity, mixing great business practice with compassion, and so much more! With all of the bad in this world, I feel people are mostly good in their hearts.
This year, let us concentrate on looking for the good and not searching for and criticizing weaknesses in others. So often it is easy to stereo-type people. I do not believe ANY race is free of prejudice. The only way there will be peace is if we put all prejudices aside and view each individual as having been created for good and as a brother or sister…for I totally believe we are!
My hope and prayer is for success and joy to fill the earth and especially for each one of you! Whether or not we believe in the same God – or even for those who do not believe – I hope you will respect my beliefs – as I do yours- and still be united in earnestly doing our part to make this a better world…A World filled with respect for others.
TO ALL, I HOPE THIS IS A WONDERFUL YEAR!
