SO MANY AWARDS ... WHAT'S A BOY TO DO?

Well, after two exciting days hosting my friend Roland Yeomans book blog tour, I finally have the time to thank all my blog friends who have presented me awards for the past few weeks.... You know how busy life gets. I don't have to tell you!

Let's start with one of MY favorite.... This little guy was awarded to me by Alex J. Cavanaugh,,,This award I invite all of you to take home. It will bring a smile to anyone who visits your blog.... I present to you ....



This next award was given to me by The Words Crafter.... Becky is a sweetheart so drop by her blog. You won't be disappointed.




I award the write hard award to Colene @ The Journey. She is an awesome person that has been working incredibly hard on her novel lately.


I have been awarded this six times! So I would like to thank my blogger friends who have been so kind to bestow this award to me. Thank you Quin, Nicki, E.C. Critique Sisters Corner, Alison, and Chris. I am so honored to be so stylish.

I would like to give this award to Ali "The Ninja" Cross. She has an awesome blog and is an amazing member of our community.

Another fun blog I just recently discovered is Tragic Creativity. Poetic Justice is one classy girl!


To me the SUNSHINE award evokes spring time, warm breezes, and friendship. The charming Elizabeth Mueller, a wonderful and creative writer was kind enough to give this award to me.

Today I would love to share spring with the following bloggers.

Summer Ross @ My Inner Fairy. I am sure most of you know her, but if you don't hop over and give her a virtual fairy hug.

Wendy Tyler Ryan always has a positive and informative message at her blog. Her series of self publishing recently shined on us the pros and cons of self publishing. Do drop in on Wendy, you won't be disappointed.

Margo Benson is always sweet and visits so many bloggers she lives in England with her hubby Tony, so I want to send her blues skies and a spring flower....


I received this award from Sheri from the Writer's Alley. There is always something fun at the "alley" so make sure you hop over and say hi to Sheri.

There is one blogger who stands out to me right now that really deserves this award.

Donna Hole is an amazing writer and good friend. Her blog is always filled with kind words for others and tips on writing. She has helped me several times with her insightful critiques. I hope you will hop over to her blog to get to know her better. Donna is a gem.

I still need to play catch up with three or four other awards. So I will get to those next week.

Thank you to the special people who were kind enough to think of me and to the several people I pointed out today, I cherish you all.

As a final note I would like to thank a new friend/blogger who I just recently discovered. I was lucky enough to win an ebook of Jennifer Huddock's The Goblin Market in her very first blog contest. Please stop over to say hi to XC @ Mystic Thoughts.

AND DON'T FORGET TO VISIT THE RAINY DAY WANDERER for the next stop of the blog book tour of THE BEAR WITH TWO SHADOWS!

HAVE A WONDERFUL THURSDAY.

  6. Congrats, to you and to the winners! I'm a horrible awards person. I forget I received them, I don't thank the giver properly and always forget to hand them to others. I don't know how people do it.
