Liebster Award

Here as I'm rushing around in preparation for the release my first novel, I got my very first ever blog award! =)
This kindness was bestowed upon me by Doralynn Kennedy at her amazing blog: My Publishing Diary
Thank you so much for thinking of me, Doralynn...also for taking the time to read my chapters and leave such nice comments about them! ;o)  xoxo

Here is the beautiful, shiny award that just so happens to match my blog perfectly:

"liebster" means friend =)

the rules:
1. Show your thanks to the blogger who gave you the award by linking back to them.
2. Reveal your top 5 picks and let them know by leaving a comment on their blog.
3. Post the award on your blog.
4. Bask in the love from the most supportive people on the internet — other writers.
5. And best of all – have fun and spread the love.

Now I get to choose 5 blogs with under 200 followers who I think also deserve the award...I get to share the love...& that is always a good thing! ;o) ♥ 

I chose the following 5 blogs because these are 5 awesome people who just happen to be awesome writers as well! =)

1.  Sharon C. Williams, aka @NewEngland_Muse, The Musings of a New Englander
2.  PHC Marchesi, aka @PHCMarchesi, Musings of a Writer
3.  Liz Cabrera, aka @Singinglizzy, One Flew Over the Ghetto's Nest
4.  Karen Hansen, aka @Karenof4, My Writing Journey
5.  Robin Raven, aka @RobinRaven, RobinRaven.com

...and then I wanted to mention the following because they are also awesome writers, artists, & people...and I'm such a noob when it comes to blog awards, I wasn't sure if they fit the rules. ;o)

Sarah James, aka @_sarahjames  Sarah's Blog
Deb Bryan, aka @deb_bryan, The Monster in Your Closet.
Heather Matthews, aka @RomanceNovelist, Heather Matthews.
Dean Harkness, aka @Deanus, DeanHarkness.co.uk

Thanks again to Doralynn for my first blog award! xoxo
