But, since I'm here and have a loving family surrounding me, it's ultimately a story of triumph I'd tell if I decided to use some of that mysterious history in a story. (less)

Toi Thomas Finding one’s purpose is the key to unlocking the joy of life. For when you finally know why you are here, everything else just seems to fall into place.


message 2: by Toi

Toi Thomas I promote books and authors because I think authors should be just as important to the world of entertainment as music groups or movie stars.

Toi Thomas This is my first comment and I'm so happy to announce the winners of my book giveaway. Rachel Mahurin and Crystal Young should be receiving their signed copies of Eternal Curse: Giovanni's Angel this week. Congrats guys and Happy Birthday to me. I have a huge smile on my face knowing I've gotten some cool gifts, some new fans, an author spotlight posted at Ravenz Reviews, and an article being posted later at Morgen Bailey's Writing Blog. Yay for me!
