Ooooh, Look! I’m Nominated For The Shine On Award!


Deanna from the wonderful blog: BookLover’s Attic has nominated me for the Shine On Award! So my first order of business is to thank her for her support.  Her blog is awesome. Check it out here:

THE SHINE ON AWARD
Here are the rules of the award:

1. Visit and thank the blogger who nominated you.

Done.

2. Acknowledge that blogger on your blog, and link back.

Done
3. Share seven random, interesting things about yourself.

Here we go:

1. I’m one-quarter Blackfoot Indian and one-quarter German.

2. I love old fashioned men who open doors for me and pull out my chair at the table.

3. I love organic gardening and canning my own veggies.

4. If I had a million dollars, I’d be broke in a week. I love helping others and find it makes me richer than having money.

5. I’m not political in any sense of the word. Ever.

6. I have what almost all the world would call strange religious beliefs.

7. I was once walking in the park, talking to a friend about how to plot a wedding in a book I was writing. I told her the only way we could get the girl married was to kill her dad. My husband was walking behind us a few feet and when strangers heard us talking about ‘killing him,’ my husband looked at the strangers and said, “I’m not with them.”
4. Nominate up to 15 bloggers for the Shine On Award, provide a link to their blogs in your post, and notify them on their blogs.

Now it’s time to reveal my picks for the Shine On Award.  I think this is a great way to acknowledge fellow bloggers and give them more exposure to people who may not have had the pleasure of discovering them yet. So here they are:

HOW NOT TO WRITE A NOVEL


I just read a post on Kristen Lamb’s blog ( http://warriorwriters.wordpress.com/2013/07/25/the-bookpocalypse-what-to-do-when-you-realize-your-story-might-be-dead/) entitled Bookpocalypse–What to Do When You Realize Your Story Might Be DEAD.

Kristen is so funny, and I love reading her articles. I always learn something from them. Can’t wait to get my  hands on her newest book Rise of the Machines–Human Authors in a Digital World. I recommend her books to all authors, especially newbies.
