Random Act Of Kindness BLITZ for Karenne Lyn

A smile. An encouraging word. A thoughtful gesture. Each day people interact with us, help, and make our day a bit brighter and full. This is especially true in the Writing Community

Take a second to think about writers you know, like the critique partner who works with you to improve your manuscript. The writing friend who listens, supports and keeps you strong when times are tough. The author who generously offers council, advice and inspiration when asked.

So many people take the time to make us feel special, don't they? They comment on our blogs, re-tweet our posts, chat with us on forums and wish us Happy Birthday on Facebook.

Kindness ROCKS!

To commemorate the release of their book The Emotion Thesaurus, Becca and Angela at The Bookshelf Muse are hosting a TITANIC Random Act Of Kindness BLITZ. And because I think KINDNESS is contagious, I'm participating too!

I am picking Karenne Lyn at Coffee Time Romance & More, not only for what she has done for me and my career but what she has done for countless other writers. Her Coffee House is always open with a warm brew for all who may feel a little lost or in need of care and support. I have two gifts for Karenne. One is waiting for her personally in her inbox and the other will be a Coffee Time Romance promotional opportunity for people to bid upon at Brenda Novak's Annual Auction for the Cure of Diabetes. Karenne is all about giving and I know this gift will mean most to her.

My appreciation for Karenne Lyn runs deep and her advertising is designed for the writer on a very tight budget. You can find out more on some very affordable items by visiting here for Coffee Time Romance & More.

Do you know someone special that you'd like to randomly acknowledge?

Don't be shy--come join us and celebrate! Send them an email, give them a shout out, or show your appreciation in another way. Kindness makes the world go round. :)

Becca and Angela have a special RAOK gift waiting for you as well, so hop on over to The Bookshelf Muse to pick it up.

Have you ever participated in or been the recipient of a Random Act Of Kindness?  Let me know in the comments!

Karenne so deserves this! How wonderful of you to have picked her, Karen. Your thoughtfulness is outstanding.

And, Karenne, if you read this, know that we all really do appreciate what you do. You are truly a gift to authors and readers alike.

Stay wonderful, both of you. I am proud to know such extraordinary ladies!!

Kayelle, you are another inspiration and your giving nature also puts you in this category. I'm blessed to know both you and Karenne and have been the recipient
of more rich generosity than I could have ever fathomed.

Karen Cote said...

Darling, darling, Virg. You are another reason I am grateful to Karenne. Without her, I never would have met you and my Coffee Time family.

What a great shoutout, and what a great looking site Coffee Time is! Yay random kindness!

I think Karen is an inpiration--always pleasant, quick with a kind word or a virtual hug, actively taking on challenges beneficial to others. All this and working at her craft, which is writing. Karen is my not-so-random act of kindness for a writer.
