Help that Author; The Flood with Love Contest!

Good Morning!!!  

On this lovely day, I bring to your attention one of my favoritest people ever! Karen Hoover, author of the Wolfchild Saga & The Misadventures of a Teenage Wizard! Why do I bring your attention to Karen today? Well let me give you a little back story first.  

You see, in 2007 I was a lonely little teenage girl looking for her place in the world.  I had very few friends, no social life whatsoever and I really had no idea what I was going to do with my life.  And then. . . I met Karen.  (Okay so a LOT of back story was left out, but if you've been around here a while, you should know the parts I left out.) 

The part involving Karen is the important part for this story.  Anyway, I met Karen.  And Karen took me under her writing wing, made some wings for me, helped me stretch those wings and then threw me out a window.  And in Writer Translation, She taught me how to write novels, helped me, tutored me, and sent me out into the world with the idea that I could be a writer and the knowledge to succeed.  

So if you have read this blog long enough, you know that I LOVE Karen.  And her books are stunning.  Her writing is incredible and I am a huge fan of her books!!  So here is the thing, in the Wolfchild Saga, she has released TWO books.  The Third book -The Emerald Wolf- was supposed to be published and released months ago.  AND Karen hasn't been able to send that book out to the world yet.  

Why?  Because of personal matters.  SO I need your help! I am calling out to ALL of you to help me get Karen on her feet again.  Let us help her stretch those wings and toss her out a window.  (And to clarify, I mean let us encourage her and let her know how much we REALLY want to read The Emerald Wolf.) 

HOW? Let me tell you!

  4. Konstanz, you are SO busted! Oh my gosh, when I read this I sat here at my desk and just bawled. Thank you so much, my sweet, sweet friend for taking some time to lift me up. I can't even begin to tell you how much it means. I feel like saying "I'm not worthy!" but, you make me feel like maybe, just maybe, I might be. I really only have two words for you that don't even scrape the surface of what I feel.

    Thank you! (((HUGS)))

    1. Karen, dang! I was so hoping I could get away with this for at least two days. (Who told you/how did you find out?)

      *Hugs* You are worthy, totally! And you deserve it and I am so glad that it helped. :D

      You're welcome! I love you! *HUGS*

    2. lol! Facebook told me when you linked my name. It's okay to know sooner. I needed it TODAY. Really hard day with one of my boys. :( You can't take away my problems, but you can and have let me know that the other part of my life is worth something too and there are people waiting for me to get to it. You have made me want to. Thank you for that!
