Very Inspiring Blogger Award

I've been nominated for a Very Inspiring Blogger Award by paranormal author, Ally Shields! Yay! Go me. Thank you so much, Ally, for the acknowledgement. The rules for this award are as follows:

Display the award logo on your blog.
Link back to the person who nominated you.
State 7 things about yourself.
Nominate 15 bloggers for this award and link to them.
Notify those bloggers of the nomination and the award’s requirements.

Seven things about myself (as stated by my husband; I thought this might add some humour):

1. I am blunt.
2. I am well-intentioned.
3. I am pushy.
4. I am determined...sometimes.
5. I am a button-pusher.
6. I pee when I sneeze. 
(So, I didn't want to put this, but in the spirit of my post I am writing it anyway). By the way, I've had two children, and it only rarely happens. AND take a lesson from me and don't ask you spouse to pick the seven things to say about yourself.
7. I enjoy painting, sewing, art, writing--for now.
So...my husband thinks I change my interests as frequently as I change my underwear. I have tried and given up many things over the years. The only interest that has stuck for me is writing.

15 people I would like to nominate for this award are:

1. Christina Dotson
2. E.C. Newman
3. Amy Newman
4. Cyn Balog
5. Taryn Blackthorne
6. Lynn Rush
7. Shawna Romkey
8. Anne Rose
9. Renee Pace
10. Cat Kalen
11. Suzanne van Rooyen
12. Theresa McClinton
13. Dani-Lyn Alexander
14. Catherine Cavendish
15. Tara Fuller

There you have it! Make sure to check out these authors! Most are young adult or new adult authors, but there is some contemporary adult and horror authors thrown in their for good measure--and because they're awesome! 


  1. Thanks so much Sara for the nomination. Now, I have to write more.

  2. Thanks, Sara! It's snowing on your blog. How cool is that??

    1. I know, right? I saw it on Nocturnal Book Reads and told Kara I was stealing it from her :) I'd direct you to the site I got the code from, but I don't even know where it is anymore. I may have to keep it up all year for fear I won't find it again next winter.
