One Lovely Blog Award

onelovelyblogNow for some award fun: Fellow young adult and fantasy author A.E. Martin awarded me a lovely blog award!

The rules of this award are simple—no lists of weird personal trivia, I simply get to pass it on to 15 recently-discovered blogs so y’all can check them out, too. Luckily, I’ve been participating in Rachael Harrie’s Writer’s Platform-Building Campaign, so I have plenty of new blogs from which to choose! Check these out. I hope you enjoy them as much as I have!

And, of course, I deliver this lovely award with all the appropriate disclaimers: feel free to take away only warm fuzzies and not take on the workload, to display or not, to follow the rules or make up your own, and so on. This is not intended to distract you in any way from your writing adventures, only to give you joy along the way!

Happy writing!

    Good luck with NaNo (this week, it has kicked my butt, but I’m hoping to wrestle it to the ground by next week.
