National Author’s Day November 1, 2017

Every year on November 1, millions of people celebrate authors and the books that they write on National Author’s Day.📚
After her grandmother’s death in 1968, Sue Cole promoted the observance of National Authors Day.  She urged people to write a note to their favorite author on November 1, to “brighten up the sometimes lonely business of being a writer.”  She also suggested flying the American flag as another way of showing appreciation for the men and women who have created American literature. 🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉

So with that being said, who do I pick? I can’t possibly pick just one to honor! Every author from the classics like F. Scott Fitzgerald and Louisa May Alcott to the guy/girl in the basement who hasn’t gotten his/her book finished yet or it’s finished and they struggle to publish or it’s published and they struggle to get reviews and get promoted, I love them all. Truth is every author wether we like them or hate them has taken time to write a piece of their soul and share it with strangers who will judge it. They live in a world of judgement every time someone buys their book. They should all be honored and respected. 📚📚📚📚📚📚

So off my soapbox now, I would like to say thank you. Thank you to every author in every country for sharing your minds and hearts with the rest of the world so we can be someone else, somewhere else when we read your books!
