The Holiday Siren's Event Team - Thanks you all!

The Authors of the Holiday Siren's Event
wish to thank you all for a wonderful time these last 12 days! 

We sure hope that you enjoyed visiting our blog and that you found some great books to read for yourself and to giveaway as gifts this Holiday Season.

Now while we did do this event to the them of Christmas, using the 12 days of Christmas, Crime Fighter Style we do understand that there are so many other faiths, and holidays that are celebrated at this time of year besides Christmas.  We mean no disrespect to any of you and hope that your holiday season is as wonderful, happy and loving as it can be!

Thank you Notes from the authors:

I would first like to thank Stacy! You have been an incredible inspiration during the Holiday Sirens event. Thank you for the endless time you’ve put in to make this a success. For all the Holiday Sirens authors, WOW what a ride. Thank you and it’s been wonderful getting to know you! Emerald Barnes, I so appreciate the wonderful interview you provided me. I hope we will be working together in the future. T.M. Sounders and Cheap Kindle Daily, thank you for highlighting my book and publicizing the Holiday Sirens. To everyone who bought Bad Luck Cadet THANK YOU! Bad Luck Officer is on its way.
Merry Christmas,
I'd like to thank you, Stacy, for initiating Holiday Sirens, and for all the hard work you put into it. I'd also like to thank the other 8 members for tweeting each day. For me, the results were not immediately fantastic, but I'm sure the process will have brought my name to the attention of a lot of potential customers for future books. Maybe you'd think about including me if you decide to run another of these promotions in the future.

David Anderson, author of An Indecent Death, would like to thank all the many people who helped make the Holiday Sirens event a big success. Specifically he would like to mention Christine Cunningham for taking the time to interview him on her blog, T.M. Souders for featuring him on her website, the other members of Holiday Sirens for their support and encouragement, and most of all, Stacy Eaton, for her tireless efforts on his behalf. Where would we all have been without her? Many thanks.
David Anderson 
Four years ago, I started writing with the hope that just one person would like my book.  With 40 amazing reviews, and daily support, this journey has been remarkable! Thanks to all that purchased Enemy in Blue, without you there is NOTHING!
Derek Blass 
 I want to thank Author Stacy Eaton for hosting all of us 'crime authors' for this month's Holiday Sirens.  I can only imagine the time she has devoted to this event.  It was so much fun to be a part of it and to meet and work with all the great authors in this group.  I feel I've made some lifelong friends here.  I'd also like to thank Tia Souders, Emerald Barnes, the other authors in Holiday Sirens, and everyone else who's had a hand in 'Holiday Sirens'.  It's wonderful to belong to such a supportive group of people.  To all of my readers out there, thank you so much for your support in purchasing Blind Veil.  I hope you thoroughly enjoy my novel.  I'm working hard on the second book due out in 2012, so keep an eye out for it.  

Michael Lorde

I want to thank God, my parents, the producers who believed in me...wait, wrong speech. In all seriousness, this whole wonderful event is the brainchild of one lovely, talented writer and dedicated cop: Stacy Eaton (whose blood DEFINITELY runs blue)! Thank you so much, lady! You made the holidays that much better for all of us, and the extra miles you walk for your fellow indie writers do not go unnoticed. YOU ROCK!

Big gratitude to T.M. Souders, who featured each of us on her Cheap Kindle Daily, how cool was that? You are the best, Tia!

On a personal note, I owe major cyber-hugs to Em Barnes for once again making me look good on her amazing blog! Seriously one of the best blog hosts I know.

Lastly, none of us would be anywhere without our dear readers. I am so grateful for each and every one of you...we write because YOU READ! What a great team we make. THANK YOU!

R. S. Guthrie

Happy Holidays from all of us here at the Holiday Siren's Event to all of you and your families! 
Please be safe, DO NOT drink and drive - be thankful for all that you have and tell someone you love them.
