John Howell at Fiction Favorites has nominated me for the Versatile Blogger Award. Thanks, John! His blog covers a variety of topics, including stories that have made a difference in people’s lives. He has completed two novels and is working on a third.
Here’s how it works (and feel free to adjust as necessary):
1. Announce your win and link back to the person who nominated you.
2. Display the award logo on your blog.
3. Post seven things about yourself.
4. Nominate fifteen bloggers for the award and link to them.
5. Let the bloggers know you’ve nominated them.
Seven things about me:
I like reading books and blogs about writing.
I’ve ridden a cow.
My novel, Freeblood, won Second Prize in the 2012 Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award (young adult category, although I consider it a crossover novel). I’m currently working on the sequel, Fastblood.
I once trimmed my bangs too short before my husband’s holiday office party. Ridiculously short. Embarrassingly short. (Take note, people: naturally curly hair springs up when it dries.) Several attendees commented on my new hairstyle. I thanked them and pretended like it was intentional. Gah!
I love flowers of all colors and sizes, and usually plant a big random variety in my summer beds.
My husband receives a refreshing shower if he walks by while I’m watering my flowers.
A favorite summer pastime is floating the Deschutes River in Bend, Oregon.
Please accept the nomination in the spirit in which it was given. Some prefer not to post awards on their blog. No problem! I’m simply happy to share your website with others.
Freeblood: The price will remain 99¢ until the end of the month, and then it goes back up to $2.99.
Coming up: More wordplay and the Sunshine Blogger Award, presented to me by Kimberly Bettes. Stay tuned!
