THANKFUL

Hi, everyone! (And a big thank you to Danielle for having me over!)

With Thanksgiving just around the corner, I thought I’d spend a little time talking about things that I am thankful to have in my life. I feel so lucky—every day, I get to do the one job that I always dreamed of having…I get to write.

When I think of the things I’m thankful to have, well, my list goes like this:

1. Readers. My readers are wonderful! They are rock stars! I am overwhelmed by the support that they give to my stories. When I meet readers at conferences (like the fabulous upcoming Coastal Magic Con!), I feel like I am actually greeting old friends. To be around people who love romance novels as much as I do—it’s amazing! I am so looking forward to the Coastal Magic Con in 2014—I had a blast at the event last year, and I can’t wait to reconnect with folks—and meet new book lovers! The atmosphere was so fantastic last year—each person there was pumped about books. ;) And speaking of those…

2. Books. I’m thankful for books. I’m thankful to have the chance to write books (again, dream come true!), and I am thankful to be able to escape into the books I read. Real life can get us all down…and an escape can be so necessary.

3. I’m thankful for happy endings. Again, it goes back to the fact that real-life doesn’t come with the guaranteed happy ending—but romance books do. I need that guarantee!

4. My family. My family has always been incredibly encouraging of my writing career. I love that my 7 year old proudly tells people that his mommy writes, “Horror love stories!” (Hmm…I might have to start putting that on business cards!)

5. I’m thankful that when I was twelve years old, I wandered onto a book aisle at my local K-Mart. I picked up a Harlequin Romance that day, and my life changed. I knew then and there that I wanted to be a writer.

My “thankful” list could go on and on…but I want to know what YOU are thankful for this year. Please share with me! I’ll pick one commenter to win a $10 Amazon.com gift card and 5 commenters will win digital copies of my holiday paranormal, A VAMPIRE’S CHRISTMAS CAROL. Good luck!

Best,
Cynthia Eden

This holiday season has bite.

Ben Prescott hates Christmas—he’s a vampire, and to him, there’s certainly nothing jolly about the holiday season. While the humans are running around being merry, he’s hunting in the shadows. Ben plans to spend the holidays his way…by stalking deadly prey.

But fate has other plans for Ben.

Three visitors are coming Ben’s way…A demon who will force Ben to face his past, a ghost who will show Ben the present he could have, and a shifter who will reveal the darkness that waits in Ben’s future. Unless Ben can change his ways, he may just turn into a real monster, one who can’t be saved by anyone or anything.

‘Tis the season…to be undead.

Ben’s redemption rests in the hands of the one woman he loved and lost—Simone Laurent. If Ben is going to have a chance at being more than just the beast in the darkness, he has to prove himself to the lovely Simone. A very hard task, considering that, once upon a Christmas Eve, Simone died in Ben’s arms…

Warning: This story features one very tortured vampire, a sexy ghost from his past, and hot scenes designed to melt the winter snow. Plenty of action, adult situations, and steamy times are ahead. Happy holidays!

  21. Today I am most thankful that my newborn grand niece doesn't have a major infection like the doctors first thought (she's gonna have a hard enough time of it).

    I'm also thankful for my loving family and my pets; my job; and that all the problems that come up in day to day are not as major as they could be. :-)

    Thanks for sharing today!

  22. I am thankful for the family I have. When my husband away 5 months ago my daughters were there for me. My oldest even to on most of the financial aspect, we had just purchased life insurance the day before his sudden death. I was unable to return to the home we were living because he passed there. My niece and her family took my youngest daughter and myself in. There is nothing like family to come and be by you in a tragedy.
