The Next Big Thing Blog Hop

“The Next Big Thing Blog Hop”

Coming November 28!

Hello friends!

Hope you had a wonderful and blessed Thanksgiving holiday!

Always remember:

We are blessed with God’s great abundance!

Mindfully counting and enjoying His blessings while sharing with others, we empower the Universe to be more generous in giving!


Do you know what “ The Next Big Thing Blog Hop”  is?

I didn’t! I just heard about it recently, when invited to participate in this event.

I have never done anything like this. Being open to new adventures, although bewildering to a degree, is exciting!

I so look forward to posting on November 28!

I was tagged by Patty Apostolides.  She is a biologist and author of Greek Novels, Lipsi’s Daughter, The Lion and the Nurse, and The Greek Maiden and the English Lord.

She has also written the poetry book “Candlelit Journey: Poetry from the Heart.

Patty was tagged by Maria F. Karamitsos, associate editor of the GreekStar newspaper in Chicago and author at

The process is similar to a chain letter:

One writer/author answers several questions about him and about his writing, something she works on or has already published. At the end of that session, five other authors should be listed, who will have to answer their own questions and “tag” five other authors, and so on.

It’s a great way for writers and authors to gain exposure, as readers hop from one blog to another, reading about their favorite writers, as well as learning about new ones.

This is a great way to share our “stories!”

I am posting this with the intention of inviting you to visit me at the 28th of November and learn about the book I am working on. I am also inviting you to participate in sharing your story.

Hop along with me and/or return next week to read more about me and get a chance to see what other wonderful writers and authors have to say about themselves and their writing!

Looking forward to hearing from you!

Love and blessings,
