Friday Funnies: Thank You, Posse!

Hello, Posse!

Today is a day I set aside to give a big thank you to all of you who have been following along with my work. You will never know how much I appreciate each and every one of you. I have virtually no budget to for advertising so every reader I have gained has been through hours and hours of my own social media posting, hounding my friends and current followers to share my posts (thank you for that too!), and any interviews I can manage to secure.

It is a long slow process and part of the reason my books come out so slowly is because I have to devote so much of my time to networking, marketing, an social media. I hope I can get to a day when my followers are significant enough I can let up a bit on the marketing side and spend more time on ust actual writing.

It is all of this work that makes me extremely grateful for every one of you. As long as I write stories, I am a writer. But it really means so much more when there are other people who enjoy the stories too. I do this not just because I feel the need to write but because I want to share the stories with other people and hope that it brings them as much enjoyment as it brings me to write them.

So for today, I think jokes about writers would be in order. I hope these bring a smile to your face and lighten your heart today.
