Thank You.




It is funny, I remember joining DL Hammon's Blog Blitz a few months ago and really thinking it was a great idea. Little did I know that in a time where I felt a decent amount of sadness and slightly overwhelmed that I would find myself Blitzed.

I really appreciate everyone who came and everyone who stayed. Not only did I get blitzed but nearly every single comment was personal and not some generic thing posted on a strangers blog. It was very uplifting and much appreciated. 

I usually like to reply to each comment comment given on my blog. Even if no one comes back to read it, I feel better taking the time to do so. Well I received quite a bit of comments on my IWSG and some on other post. Replying to all with my schedule would be hard, not that I still wasn't tempted, but I would at least like to post this saying thank you to all who stopped by. It actually was very touching and helped me a great deal. I smiled as I read each comment and I can't wait to come check out your blogs.

Also I saw an awesome trailer today at Being Retro for Alex J Cavanaugh's new book CassaStorm. Click on the link and go check it out, it's awesome. 


Anyway, I am going to get back to the family and hope you are all well. As always, have fun and keep writing.

  1. Welcome to my world! Glad you had a great Blitz/IWSG day. I told DL he was being a sneaky Blitzer because of the two events overlapping.
    I debuted my trailer yesterday and that was just awesome of Jeremy to post it today. My publisher did a great job with it. Thanks for mentioning it.

    1. Man I don't know how you do it. One day I may become a blogging god like yourself, lol. For now I will just try to get to all the IWSG post or as much as I can. and do some follow backs.

      Yes I thought it was a really good trailer, I think they nailed it.

  2. I'm glad you enjoyed it, Brandon! It feels great and overwhelming. I was also tempted to answer each one but I finally decided it was too much. In any case yes, I also wanted to hug my laptop, hahahaha. I liked CassaStorm trailer very much too. :)

  14. I also am sorry I missed your blitz day, it's really become a great feeling to reach out and "meet" new people. I remember reading how Ernest Gaines once said his advice for writers was to speak of the "human condition" and I think that's how bloggers on any topic really can connect. I'm sorry about your grandmother but I know exactly how you feel about those memories. Use them and they will love you always. Enjoy the lingering feeling of being blitzed! Don't worry about responding, either, it's okay! Faith

  15. The human heart in conflict with itself. Yeah we all feel and relate to one degree or another on how that emotion affects us. I am glad to share myself and have others share themselves, it is what makes this blogging thing so amazing. Thanks for coming by.
