Random Acts 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'm BLITZING Author Gerri Brousseau! She is amazing and helps writers with marketing and promoting their blogs through the group WRITERS on Facebook. She's always willing to help and promote other authors. I love being able to recognize her for her unselfish act of paying it forward.

Gerri, for my RAOK, I'm offering you a copy of The Emotion Thesaurus! You are going to love it! I use this information in a lot of my writing.
I really appreciate Gerri, who blogs at Nights of Passion. If you have a minute, please stop in and tell her how awesome she is!

Do you know someone special that you'd like to randomly acknowledge? Don't be shy--come join us and celebrate! Send them an email, give them a shout out, or show your appreciation in another way. Kindness makes the world go round. :)
Becca and Angela have a special RAOK gift waiting for you as well, so hop on over to The Bookshelf Muse to pick it up.
Have you ever participated in or been the recipient of a Random Act Of Kindness?  Let me know in the comments!


  1. This is such a cool idea!! I've been working my way through "The Magic" by Rhonda Byrne (the author of "The Secret") and the purpose of the book is to teach us to show gratitude each and every single day - all day long, really. And to make sure we share with others how much we appreciate them. Once I get my blog back up and running, I'm definitely going to incorporate this!!

    As always, thank you for sharing all of your wisdom!!

    1. It has been so much fun participating in this!! I loved the idea from the beginning!!

  2. Love RAOK, and thanks to you I tweeted and bought the paperback book of The Emotion Thesaurus. I'll have it by Wed! :) I love reading indie books and leaving reviews--in fact I've got a list I've got to get posted!

    1. Stacey! It's a great book! I use it all the time!!

  3. Thank you so much, Tonya. You can't imagine my surprise to open Facebook this morning and see this post! I'm honored, and for once in my life, at a loss for words. I began Writers on Facebook simply so my writer friends would't have to read about my cousin feeding her pig on farmville. I wanted a place where writers could simply be who and what they are. Thank you so much for this recognition and I can't wait to get The Emotion Thesaurus!

    1. Oh, Gerri! You are so welcome. I didn't even hesitate when they asked me to pick someone. I knew it was going to be you. I sooooo want to see you succeed!!

  4. That's awesome. I know the book is going to be so great.

  5. What a great shout out to Gerri--I love that she's making such a difference to so many through Facebook. And thank you for choosing the ET as your RAOK--that was very sweet of you.

    Hugs all around, guys! What a great uplifting day this has been, reading about so many amazing people!


    1. Angela! I had to give your book! It's so great for writers!

  6. Yay RAOK week! What a good choice too, I love people who give back to the writing community.

  7. Fabulous gift (why didn't I think of that LOL?) Gerri must be thrilled :-)

The holidays have arrived, and nothing is going to steal the joy of Roxanne Bloom’s first Christmas in Honey Springs.

The town’s annual Christmas in the Park is underway and includes a Christmas Pawrade that’ll help the furry residents at Pet Palace get a home for Christmas. It’s not the four-legged creatures that steal the show, it’s the pair of legs sticking out from the Christmas tree lighting ceremony that has all the town talking. 

The suspects are piling up faster than the falling snow, while a murderer is on the loose. Roxy can’t let this ruin her first Christmas in Honey Springs and soon realizes it’s the ghosts of Christmas past that holds the real clues. But can she get this mystery solved in time for the holidays?
