Here in the UK we don’t celebrate this which seems a bit of a shame to me as I love any excuse to celebrate and to eat a hearty dinner! Enjoy your turkey, save me some pumpkin pie, have a wonderful time, and thereafter the very next day don’t forget that it’s Black Friday, shopping day, for those on the look out for bargains.
My two main things to be thankful for at the moment are my new job working at John Lewis (this means I won’t be out shopping on Black Friday as I’ll be working,) so I’ll have some spare cash for Christmas, and for book marketing/book cover design in the New Year. Also I have heard back from Hilary Johnson Author Advisory service, they have made some wonderful suggestions regarding my manuscript so now I can take some of these ideas, and get editing…. At last, I feel that I have some direction, and know what to do next. That’s definitely something to feel thankful for.
So a tip, if you need some advice about your manuscript do try Hilary Johnson, don’t procrastinate for ever like I did. Here’s the link to find out more: http://www.hilaryjohnson.com/
So I am going to be a very busy bee, or should I say partner, that’s what John Lewis call their employees!
Have a fun packed Thanksgiving.
Bye for now, I’m off to put my feet up and read a book.
My current read is Stephen King’s The Bazaar of Bad Dreams!! I shall be telling you all about that soon, I just hope it doesn’t give me bad dreams tonight, there is a particularly vicious car in the short story collection which I don’t like the sound of one little bit! That car is hungry…. just make sure you aren’t its next dinner!!

Happy Thanksgiving my friend. Enjoy your amazing read! <3
Have a fun safe day tomorrow – let me know how it goes! Is it as crazy as they all say? Thanks for the link to the author advisory service, I might look into that when the times comes and was on the look out for recommendations.
Yes it is as crazy, but I survived! I think a glass of wine later is in order but I still have to take my daughter to her sleepover! A woman’s work is never done! Glad you might find the author’s advisory service helpful Annika. 🙂
Ha! You’re right about that, there is always more work left to do! Glad you are okay after the madness of today. Is that the John Lewis at the Grand Arcade? You’ve definitely deserved the wine, once you’re back from parent taxi service duty! I’m finding that is increasingly busy these days! Have a lovely weekend Marje. 😀
Think I overdid it with the wine last night! Oops never mind. Yes it is the Grand Arcade, John Lewis. Have a lovely weekend too Annika. 🙂
Happy Thanksgiving, partner!
Thank you Al!! Just back from black Friday that was seriously manic looking forward to my reward a nice glass of wine later…. 🙂
You can celebrate anyways! We’re having a huge thanksgiving party tonight with 19 people… Traveling to Paris from Germany and Switzerland and none are American!
Happy thanksgiving and enjoy work!
Wow hope you had fun that sounds awesome, and thanks for the work well wishes too.
Hi Marje, yes it is such a shame that us Brits don’t do Thanksgiving. I was in the States last Thanksgiving and saw the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade. It was brilliant and it was wonderful to share the holiday with our American friends.
Good to hear that the job at John Lewis is going well, and congratulations on the up coming book. I look forward to hearing what you have to say about the new Stephen King novel as well. Didn’t he write a story about a murderous car before? I think it was called “Christine”.
The Macys parade must have been awesome Hugh. Well it was busy, busy today as it was Black Friday. Enjoyed reading some Stephen King on the bus on the way to work, I must confess it is my first Stephen King read but I don’t think it will be my last. I like his dark humour.
