I love getting these awards and thank you SO much Sara Flower, blogger and soon-to-be published author (*eek*), for nominating me for the Sunshine Blogger Award.
This is how this award works.
Rules: Thank the person who gave you the award. Write a post about it. Answer the questions that come with it. Pass it along to ten other bloggers and let them know they’ve received the award.
Favorite Color: Silver Sage (thank you Restoration Hardware for addicting me to this color)
Favorite Animal: Oh, this is so hard. I love so many. If I had to pick, I’d say Canadian Geese. I raised an orphaned one when I was little and she has a special place in my heart.
Favorite Number: 7
Favorite Non-Alcoholic Drink: Lattes (I have a whole post about this)
Facebook or Twitter: Ugh, I have to start to use these more, but I feel ancient when it comes to technological thingies (it’s a miracle I’ve figured blogging out)
My Passions: Writing, reading, animals, hiking, family, antiques, gardening, and crafty stuff.
Getting or Giving Presents: Giving. I get such a thrill out of finding the perfect present for someone.
Favorite Pattern: Wow, I’ve never thought of this before. I have to say ribbons and roses.
Favorite Day of the Week: Saturday, since my husband’s home and I actually get some writing time!
Favorite Flower: Pansies
Sara Flower– I have to nominate her back since I just worship her style and her romantic/fantasy inspired posts. They have a way of transporting me to a place that is critical for everything imaginative.
Bethany Yeager– I have so much love for this amazing blogger and writer. Not only is she just the best crit partner in the world, her posts are always so fun and full of sagacious writing advice.
Yesenia– Now this aspiring writer is just about to give birth, so she gets a free pass not to respond to this award. But she has terrific insights into writing with tips and resources to help aspiring writers. Good luck with the new baby!
Brian James Freeman– I’m new to Brian’s blog, but his novellas looked so interesting, I snatched them up right away. I’m half-way through his collections of short stories titled Seven Stories and he has a wonderful voice. He has such a professional blog and I look to him as model for a successful author.
David Shutter– David’s blog is wonderful for staying on top of the latest self-publishing news and occasionally he speaks about his journey toward self-publishing. I love the title of his first sci-fi action thriller, The Doomsday Door.
Hollister Ann Grant– I owe this blogger a lot. She found my blog early on and provided such wonderful advice since she had just published herself. She has two books out right now (both so enjoyable) and I know she is busy right now writing a third. She writes fantastic guest posts and is so helpful.
Shéa MacLeod- Talk about prolific writer! This lady puts me to shame. Every time I check in on her blog it seems she’s written another amazing book. I love her blog, love her guest posts, and I love her voice.
Caitlinnicoll – Exceptional YA reviews. I don’t know how she does it, but I’m astounded by how many books this girl can read! Her blog is always fun and creative.
Brigid Kemmerer– Author of the Elemental series, who is just about to have her debut release! She provides great advice and insight into the traditionally published route. I can’t wait to get my hands on Storm, the first of her series.
Katie Mills Hilarious, hilarious blogger whose blog title, Creepy Query Girl, says it all. Every post she writes makes me laugh. Don’t miss this one, especially if you’ve been down the query rejection path.
Thanks again, Sara and be sure to check out the above blogs—they will not disappoint!
