Gratitude & Giving Day 23 - Toni Griffin

First and foremost I would like to say a bit Thank You to K-Lee for hosting this. As soon as I saw the call go out on Facebook I knew it was something that I would love to take part in.

I can't believe there's only two days left until Christmas and only a week and a bit left of 2015. Where has the time gone? This year hasn't been a great one for me writing wise, but I'm hoping 2016 will be different.

All throughout the year though, even with the decreases in releases, my readers never left me. I love you guys and I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart. I love getting emails from readers letting me know they loved one of my books, or wanting to know when the next book in a series is scheduled to be written. If it wasn't for you guys I wouldn't be here right now.

When I started on this journey six years ago now, I was asked a question by my then husband.
How many copies of your book would you be happy selling?

My answer to that: To be honest, if I sold a total of a hundred copies I would be over the moon.
Here I am, now six years later, with twenty-three books written and thousands of copies sold all because of you. If I could personally thank you all, I would. It might take some time, but I'd try. Until then, please accept this as my thanks for taking a chance on me.

I also want to say a big thank you to my family who from the first supported me in what I chose to do. Writing isn't something I ever grew up thinking I would do, but life is funny like that sometimes. Even though I reckon I threw my family a massive curveball with the genre I chose to love and write, they've never once waivered in their support. Even though I can't be with them all this holiday season, they are in my heart and my thoughts, just as you all are.

Stay safe and I'll see you in 2016

Travels Through the Scarlet Equinox: Mischief Corner Books Anthology 6

BLURB: The Autumnal equinox—when the trees dress in their formal scarlet and gold and the crisp air whispers of chance and change, when bright days turn into sudden storms and the veil between reality and imagination thins. Join the Mischief Corner authors as they share stories evoking this often unpredictable time of year.

A Bear’s Bear by Toni Griffin
Matthew Warner's been a Chicago Bears fan as far back as he can remember. What other team was a young bear shifter from the Smokey Mountains supposed to root for? When his college friend gets tickets to the next home game, Matthew jumps at the chance for a holiday. It's his favorite time of year and Nic promises him pumpkin carving and a visit to the world's largest corn maze, what more could he want?

What Matthew doesn’t expect is finding out the defensive tackle for the Bears is his mate. Between fainting at the realization, meeting family, and dealing with the media fallout of his mate's coming out Matthew is in for a hell of a rocky Halloween.

Author BIO:
Toni Griffin lives in Darwin, the smallest of Australia's capital cities. Born and raised in the state she's a Territorian through and through. Growing up Toni hated english with a passion (as her editors can probably attest to) and found her strength lies with numbers.

Now, though, she loves escaping to the worlds she creates and hopes to continue to do so for many years to come. She's a single mother of one and works full time. When she's not writing you can just about guarantee that she will be reading one of the many MM authors she loves.

Feel free to drop her a line at info@tonigriffin.net anytime.

  3. My father is an author. He used to tell us wonderful bedtime stories and we encouraged him until he started writing. It would be convenient for him to earn enough to live off doing what he loves, but he is happy to help stories running rampant in his brain. To love writing stories and to do it well enough to be successful - you are very fortunate. Thank you for sharing your creations with us.

  4. I'm so glad that your family has supported you in your writing journey. I love reading your books. Thank you for the wonderful post and for the giveaway chance. Merry Christmas & Happy New Year! Jczlapin@gmail.com
