A Word Of Thanks...

Greetings romance fans. I truly hope everyone is doing well this holiday season. I, for one, am enjoying the hoopla of my new release from Turquoise Morning Press entitled Mac Liam and the positive responses I've been getting from readers and reviewers alike.

But I am not here to promote my works of romantic fiction. I am here today to give thanks to all my loyal fans who've made this journey so amazing. Without my fans, friends, and family, I would not have this great career. Sure, as an author, I will always write. But, without someone to read my books, my stories are only just stories.

Whether you realize it or not, readers of romance give life to an author's words and I want to thank you all for allowing my thoughts and my characters to live. Even if my characters are from the past, a period of time that no longer exists, you have given them a purpose. A reason to be who they are, whether it's the tortured hero who finds love for the first time in his pitiful life, or the ambitious heroine who gains more than she bargained for in the love of an unlikely hero. You, as the reader, bring what no other person can give to an author, both aspiring and successful. And that is the motivation to write more.

As authors, our sole ambition is to entertain - or more importantly - touch our readers with love stories they will never forget. And I've had the pleasure and privilege of doing just that.

How do I know? Because they contact me and tell me. Because they take the initiative to let me know how much they've enjoyed my books. Because they've taken the time to send me gifts or cards or letters expressing their appreciation for my hard work. And that cannot be matched.

So, thank you. To everyone who has taken the chance on my work. To everyone who has read my books - every word - and accompanied me on a beautiful journey to a different place and time. Your friendship, your loyalty, and your praise will never be forgotten.

I am very blessed to have romance fans like you. You know who you are...


With kindest regards,
Renee Vincent

I will always read your word, because you do have a talent and you believe. If a writer has those two things. I will read their work till I can't read anymore.

I cannot thank you all enough. You have no idea how much your comments touch me.

I didn't write this post so I could get more praise....I did it to give you all thanks and a piece of my appreciation though it can never match what you've give me.

I'm in tears writing this....cause I know I am so fortunate to have friends and readers like you.

A million thanks to each and every one of you!

That was Beautiful!! While I'm probably not one of the fans your talking about yet since I'm new to reading a little more than a year ago I started. But I have your books on the way and I'm sure I'll become a huge fan!!
I wish every Author was as good to the readers who's buying there books as you are.
Unfortunately I've written a couple author who shall remain nameless, but I loved their books and I even tried a second time to reach them through email and never got a response. But there are Authors on the other side of that too. I've made some really great friends too. Even had a gift exchange this year. So that was so nice!!

So glad to see how happy you are!!! Have a Wonderful Christmas and a Safe and Happy New Years!!!!!!

~ Hugs, Christine

Renee Vincent said...

Ok, can I just say that I am in shock. I never expected this outpouring of responses, especially to this degree. I am speechless and totally humbled by your comments.

I truly hope you all know how much I appreciate you. I wish I could find the words to express my gratitude, but nothing will do justice.

All I can say is....I will never stop writing and it's all because you fuel me.

Cindy said...
