I am thankful...(giveaway)

for my man and my minions and my fat dog. My family, my career, all the wonderful people I get to interact with on a regular basis.

I'm so thankful I'm doing a paperback giveaway here on Unapologetic Fiction from today through the weekend. Monday I'll draw a lucky winner from a  hat and send them a print copy of the illustrated erotic anthology NAKED DELIRIUM for his/her bookshelf.

All you have to do is leave me a comment that includes what book you are most thankful for. Or you can do a writer. Or you can do both if you are oozing with gratitude of the written word.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving. I am thankful for all of you, the folks who come and read me regularly. I am thankful that enough people read and appreciate my work that I can make a living doing what I have always wanted to do from as far back as I can remember.

Now that's being blessed. Thank you :)



  1. Tolkien. Still. (Because I've got hot singing dwarves to look forward to in December! Squeeee!)

  2. I have to say I am thankful for too many authors and books to list just one....

    I am thankful that so many authors share their worlds with me and allow me to become a part of their lives for just a moment. I am thankful that there are such a a variety of wonderful writers who allow me to escape to another world and explore a fantasy or two at the same time.

    Thank you Sommer for sharing such wonderful stories with us :)

    Happy Thanksgiving

  3. Oooh, I'll have a go. Jasper Fforde. I'm getting myself the new one (in hardback) for Christmas. Maybe if it comes early, I can wrap it up and forget what it is, and then I'll have a book and a surprise.

  4. Probably I'm most thankful for the Wizard of Earthsea by Ursula Le Guin. Yeah, it isn't porn or erotica, but it was one of those gritty little stories that inspired me to write.

  5. I'd have to say I'm most grateful for Margaret Atwood, and not only because she writes great books. She's become such an iconic figure and unwitting activist, especially here in Toronto. When our bumbling Tweedledum mayor had it in mind to cut funding for libraries, her involvement in protesting cuts got the whole city involved. It really reminded us of the importance of libraries--they're not just houses for books. They're cultural hubs.

    Aside from all that, Margaret Atwood attended the same college as me at the University of Toronto and still lives in the area and rides the streetcar. When famous people use public transit, to me that just shows integrity.

    Anyhoo, enjoy your pies, Sommer!

  6. I'm with Stacy. From the time I could read, there are just way too many authors and books that have allowed me to escape when reality sucks.

    I'm thankful for all of them, but I'm really thankful for the authors I've had the chance to interact with, because not only have I learned so much about writing from them, but also received encouragement and support.

    Happy Thanksgiving Sommer. Love to you and yours.

  7. These are all great, everyone. And Janine, I'm very excited by who's playing Bilbo. That alone makes me want to see the movie. Not that I needed any help seeing the movie.

    The author I'd have to choose is King. Even though there have been some books that have not been faves in the last decade, just going by his original framework of books (The Shining, Carrie, Pet Sematary, It, even the more recent Dumas Key and Lisey's Story etc) I could live my life out with nothing but his books around me and never been less than thoroughly entertained :)


What sayest thou?
