Happy Thanksgiving to all our US readers, and everyone else celebrating around the world! 


We've had a wonderful year so far at the Totally Entwined Group and have much to be thankful for. We've been lucky enough to expand and grow as a company, whilst upholding our core values and maintaining strong relationships with authors and customers. It's important to us to keep that personal touch! 

In the spirit of feeling thankful, we asked authors and staff members to tell us what they are feeling thankful for this Thankgiving. What a lovely task this was! We hope this particular blog post makes you feel all warm inside, just as it did for us!
