Yep, you heard me right, but that's not all. All authors participating in this month's event have also generously donated a Kindle copy of one of their books so you'll already have some great stories to read when you curl up with your new Kindle!! To enter, just complete all the easy entries on the Rafflecopter on the bottom of this page. Today let's hear from author Tony Acree and what he's thankful for :


The thing I am most thankful for is my mother. On May 23rd of this year, my mother passed away from acute leukemia. The disease hit her quickly and from diagnosis to her death was four days.

My mother raised her children to be independent, strong willed and loving. She taught us there are two ways you can face adversity: throw in the towel and ask, “why me?” or push forward and say, “I can”.

The last day of her life, she continued to show all of us how to live our lives better. Knowing she was going to die, she made several phone calls, checking on friends and family, sharing a laugh and letting each of us know, we were going to be alright.

My mother’s faith in an afterlife was unquestioned, her love of family, unequaled, and the joy she shared unsurpassed. I owe all that I am to my mother. This will be the first Thanksgiving without her. But when we all gather for dinner at my aunt’s, we will be giving thanks for having my mom in our lives.

I love my mother. I give thanks for all the memories which keep her with me, every day. 

Amazon best selling author, Tony Acree,likes putting characters in situations they think they will never survive, and find out if they're right. He lives near Louisville, Kentucky with his wife, twin daughters, two female dogs, a female cat, and says the way the goldfish looks at him, he's sure she's female, too.
