Two Great Awards, One New Blog Series, And A Partridge In A… Well, You Know.

Courtney Reese and Jemi Fraser, two of my writing-heros-slash-comrades, have each given me a new blog award! Hooray!

The first is from Jemi and is called the Circle of Friends award. I’ll agree with her: The online writing community has got to be the best in the world!

Well, maybe with the exception of the online poodle grooming community. And possibly the online cross-stitching community. But seriously, after those two? DEFINITELY the online writing community.

As far as I can tell, there are no requirements for receiving this award, so I’ll just pass it along to my usual five very worthy bloggers who are core elements in my online circle of writing friends!

1) Carol Miller
2) Harley May
3) Sara McClung
4) Simon Larter
5) Eisley Jacobs

The second award is from Courtney and is called the “Over the Top” Award. I don’t know exactly what that means, but I’m pumped that I got it!

Rules for accepting this award: Answer the following questions with Single Word answers then pass this along to 5 other bloggers.

Your Cell Phone? Flip.
Your Hair? Wavy.
Your Mother? Doting.
Your Father? Energetic.
Your Favourite Food? Carbs.

Okay. PART TWO OF BLOG POST.

In the near future, I will begin a new series here on the blog entitled “Pre-Famous Author Interviews.” This means I’ll post interviews with writers I know from Twitter, Facebook, blogs, or *gasp* real life. It’s a chance for them to spread the word about themselves and their current WIPs, and it’s also an opportunity for everyone to meet them. Sort of.

Because people, y’all are cool. Folks need to know about you. And you’re “Pre-famous” because one day you’ll just be “famous” and we can all say we knew you when.

I’ve already got several of you lined up for these interviews, but if you would like to be a part of one, please let me know! I am thrilled to do this and I hope you will be, too!

OK – that’s all for today. Love you. Mwah. Bye.

    Aw, thanks so much for the award–I'm sorry I'm just now discovering it. Major #shannonfail. Oh, and I'm not sure why anyone would want to read an interview with me, but if you're ever desperate and there's no one else left I'd be more than happy to participate. 😉
