Thursday – A Little Personal – Honoring Sally G. Cronin @scg58

 

Today is the International Day of Awesomeness. And it allows us to shine the spotlight on a truly remarkable personΒ  Sally Cronin.

Sally’s place is a hangout for indie authors. One visit there, and you will realize that this is the place to visit, follow, and participate in all that Sally Offers. She will promote and feature indie author books and review those she finds attractive.

Sally is such a treasure that on the International Day of Awesomeness, we all ought to take a moment and thank her. One way is to send her a Tweet. Another is to visit her blog and say hello.

A great way would be to visit her Amazon page and look at all her books with the idea that you will indeed find one you like. Here are the covers to whet your appetite.

The rest of the crew at Story Empire also features Sally, so you will probably be seeing quite a bit about her today. That is a good thing for sure.

We all at Story Empire honor you, Sally.

We appreciate you too.

    Sally is quite popular. This isn’t the first wonderful thing I’ve read about her.
    Speaking of reading, I have turtle read my way to about the 2/3point, chapter 18.
    I like to read with my morning coffee. If I’m reading a book of poetry, I read 1 poem every morning. With books, I do a chapter.
    It’s very interesting, John! I have no idea where this trip is taking me.
