I would like to thank...

my Family... who understands the mania of living with a writer, and still loves me
A dad... who is going all Chuck Norris on Pancreatic Cancer's arse

Friends... Who know when to come by with emergency Diet Coke, and then know when to stay far away

Blog readers (yes, YOU)... who brighten my day, and without whom my blog would just be a burp in the wind, only not as magical

A critique group... who have to wade through hundreds of crappy first drafts before they get to anything good

An agent... who's one part teddy bear, one part ninja, a dash of therapist, and a cup of cheerleader (mix together and bake at 350)

An editor... who quizzes me on the world I've created, and therefore makes the book better

A mom... who doesn't flinch when our budget's tight and I need a loan

A sister... who can't help introducing me as "the Next Stephenie Meyer", even though I punch her in the arm, because let's be honest, nobody's the next Stephenie Meyer

Two boys... Who still have no idea why I'm at the computer all day

A hubs... who... who... yeah. No words. Sorry Sam.

Feel free to add your own list. Love to you all! Happy Thanksgiving!


  1. And I would like to thank a rockin' beautiful smart wife who appreciates my awesomeness and helps me take on the world all by ourselves.

  2. Sam- Oh, sure. You WOULD find the words.

  3. I'm thankful for your blog. Three spots of funny in every week.

    I'm thankful that your book will be published soon-ish, so I can finally read it, and tell everyone I know that I knew you first....

  4. Robin- And I'm thankful for readers like you, who are excited for the book!

  5. Happy Thanksgiving, Brodi! I hope you have a wonderful holiday filled with lots of relaxation time!

  6. Hey Stephanie,...I mean Brodi, my spot in your blog is so dang short. I hope you can expand a little more when you do your "acknowledgments" for you book :) I can help you write it if you want.

    And, btw, thanks for all you do too!

  7. If Stephanie doesn't work, would Jo? She's richer than the queen. =D

    I'm thankful for people like you who share your experiences (and whimsy), which add a bright spot to my day.

  8. Erin- My acknowledgments are going to be a whole separate book! You get your own chapter.

    Donna- I'd rather be the next queen...
    And thanks to you for reading the blog!

  9. you ARE the next Stephanie Meyers.

  10. Minion- I think you have me confused with Ally Condie. Thanks, though!

  11. All wonderful things to be thankful for! I may just copy/paste, lol!

  12. Elissa- Please feel free to copy and paste! These are very generic things, and probably apply to everyone. Except for the sister thing.

  13. Aw, what a great list. I think Thanksgiving may be inching up slowly for holidays I love.

    I mean, glutony, days off, & thinking about all the things we're grateful for. And pie.

    That's my kinda holiday!

  14. Olivia- Thanksgiving indeed has everything! Plus, you don't have to worry about buying people presents. I love it.
