Thanksgiving away from home

Greetings readers from the Golden Isles of Georgia!

It feels so strange to celebrate Thanksgiving far from home. We’re seeing palmetto and cypress trees, and live oaks shrouded with Spanish moss, instead of bare maples and black walnuts. Yesterday workers were stringing Christmas lights on palms trees. Do you know how odd that looks to someone who’s spent her whole life in northern Ohio? We’ve spent Thanksgivings in the past with parents, siblings, cousins and good friends along with their extended families. This year my husband and I will dine surrounded by strangers in the land of Georgia Bulldog fans. (luv that Uga!) On the beach this morning, we were the only ones wearing Ohio State sweatshirts. But it will be perfectly fine! Everyone is so friendly  here that we already feel right at home. Southern hospitality is not a myth! Whoever said home is where the heart is wasn’t kidding. Ken and I will be together. And in our hearts we’ll have all the people we’ve spent Thanksgiving in the past, both living and dead. I hope I don’t sound too maudlin but I am so thankful for everyone–friends, family, and dear readers who’ve dropped me a line about one of my books. You have touched our lives–thank you! And I wish you all the happiest of Thanksgivings.

Now if I can interrupt this program for a commercial….my publisher, Harvest House, is offering two of my books on sale starting tomorrow. A Widow’s Hope and Sarah’s Christmas Miracle.  From November 22-26 they will be at $2.99/each through ebook distributors—this includes Kindle, Nook, Kobo, Apple, and the Sony Reader from distributor websites (Amazon, CBD.com, Barnes & Noble, iTunes, etc.).  A Widow’s Hope was nominated for a Carol Award in 2010 and Sarah’s Christmas Miracle has been my best-selling title to date.

So if you’ve missed these, now’s the chance to get them for your e-reader on sale. I believe CBD is also throwing in free shipping on some orders. In the meantime…have a lovely Thanksgiving and….don’t eat too much!

  1. KY (Pulaski County) is my favorite spot to spend Thanksgiving. I miss seeing them this year but hope to see them soon. Thanks so much for taking the time to comment on my blog. And happy Thanksgiving to you!

  2. I am a transplanted Ga woman from Ky, it took a long time to call this home but there are a lot of southern friendly people that welcome you, so glad you are enjoying your time in Ga..
    I miss the snow we had in Ky in the winter time, seldom happens in Ga
