Yeah, I know that the first Thanksgiving was not until 1621, after the last of the Tudors (Elizabeth) had died – but it was within the lifetime of the man who succeeded her on the throne, James I, so it’s Tudor-adjacent. (I chose a similarly Tudor-adjacent photo – it’s the right era but it’s the Spanish royal family…)
The point is, I didn’t want to let the day pass without thanking you all for being here. I spend my life writing – during the day for causes whose good work makes me cry, and in the evenings/nights/obsessively to bring forth stories that happened some five hundred years ago. Writing is truly my soul work and I thank you all, family, friends, clients, blog readers, and book readers and reviewers (especially the many of you who fall into more than one of these groups!), for your ongoing support.
I wish you all a wonderful time with the people who mean the most to you – even if you are outside of the United States and not celebrating….May your turkey be moist and your stuffing hearty….and may you achieve a good marshmallow-to-sweet-potato ratio on your plate. For those of you not celebrating, the wishes still hold – good times and good meals.
If you like my posts, you’ll love my books! My Seymour Saga trilogy tells the gripping story of the short-lived dynasty that shaped the Tudor Era. Jane the Quene skews romantic, The Path to Somerset is pure Game of Thrones (without the dragons), and The Boy King is a noir coming-of-age. Get them now through Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Kobo, and Apple, or even your local independent bookstore!
(PS Already read them? Did you love them? Then please review them – even just a stars rating! It makes a huge difference in helping new readers find them and would mean the world to me!)
