I owe some Thanks to my Friends

Entertaining Stories gained new followers at an accelerated rate recently. It couldn’t have happened without the help of a few special blog friends. These people went out of their way to help me and today I’m saying thank you.

If you’re one if the new followers, thank you. Here’s a post I put up recently to help you keep up with my shtick. The Entertaining Stories Primer.

S. K. Nicholls has been a great help. She did a wonderful little push for my book Panama. She also took The raven of Doubt off my hands for a few days, at a time when I really needed to operate doubt free. I gained several followers from this push and would appreciate the rest of you visiting her blog and checking it out. She writes wonderful stories about nudist colonies and such, base upon real experience. You know you want to read that.

D. S. Nelson invited me to participate in her Friday tasseomancy project. My tea leaf reading was a popular project with my readers, and I gained followers here too. She has a new reading up today, and you should check it out. She’s also expecting, and I wish her all the best.

Rachel Carrera did an author interview with me. Of course I broke all the rules and answered her questions in narrative style without including the questions. She must have forgiven me, because she also did a push for Panama. She wrote about the haunted places she has lived in recently. The bit about the crunchy worms on the floor was fascinating.

Karen invited me to participate in her ten statements project. This is a sequence for writers to explain some things about themselves to a larger audience. I reached a larger audience, and my little blog grew. She also invited me on the writing process blog tour and my corner of cyberspace grew some more. Please visit her at My Train of Thoughts On and In a Small Compass.

Blog friends are wonderful friends. These people have been very kind to me. I hope my readers will help express my gratitude by visiting these awesome bloggers and writers. They didn’t have to do any of this, and they have their own novels to promote. If you came here because of one of these bloggers, the others might be interesting to you.

    They did it because they like you… and your writing! Your blog posts do exactly what it says on the tin… they are entertaining! And funny, and original… whats not to like? If your star is rising, its because you’ve earned it. Congrats!

  4. Ali is right. We did it because we like you and your writing, Craig.
    If it weren’t for my current home improvement project, ‘Wild Concept’ would be read, and my review would already be online. There are deadlines to keep despite my lack of time, though. 😦
    What I can tell all your readers after the first chapters:
    Wild Concept is a book to read again! I just love it. πŸ™‚


    • I guess it just shocks an old introvert like me. Blogging is its own reward, without something to promote.

      Enjoy the story on your time. Home improvement can be a lot of fun. Thanks for telling readers the intro is fun though.


      • Tell me about being an introvert, Craig. πŸ˜‰
        Moving thousands of books (and computer stuff) seems endless. Next Saturday, this will hopefully be completed.

        I love that book, and everyone needs to know about it.
        Have a great weekend!


      • You to. I’m off to see if any mushrooms sprouted in the forest.


  5. Thank you for the mention Craig and the best wishes. And thank you too because some of your followers found their way to my blog too!


  6. Thank you for the thanks! Keep doing what you’re doing…it’s awesome! πŸ˜€


  7. The supportive community aspect of blogging has turned out to be a big, and wonderful, surprise for so many of us hasn’t it! And you definitely get out what you put in in that respect, like in real life!
