So much to be Thankful for

by Isabelle Hardesty

This Thanksgiving I am so thankful for my wonderful family.  It’s humbling to have so much to be thankful for.

This year, I am also thankful for the writing community who are so generous and helpful. I was able to finally get published this year, thanks to Gilded Dragonfly Books. My short story, Jade’s Awakening was featured in Legends of the Dragon, Vol.

I have attended several years of Dragon Con with my husband and sisters and found myself attending most of the writers’ workshops. I enjoyed the other panels which featured actors, however, I was fascinated and inspired by the people who created the worlds in which the actors worked.

This year I also found the benefit of Twitter as a learning platform. I’ve mined Twitter for knowledge and learned about #Pitmad  #Pitchmas  #Mockpit #MSWL  #NANOWriMo

I look forward to learning so much more as I continue my magical journey as a writer.

Here is a review that makes me smile:

“I was mesmerized from the beginning. The characters are well developed and the story line is amazing. I couldn’t put it down and was sad when I got to the last page. I can’t wait to see what happens next in Jade’s Descent. I’ve already pre-ordered!” – Lisa Whitfield
