An award from my buddy Melanie!

Wow! I won something, and I didn't have to do a thing! Miss Melanie Ray contacted me a bit ago and said that I had to go to her awesome website, www.readitin7days.com to collect. So, I did!

I am not up on all of this tech stuff, but I think I can get the gist of what she wants me to do:

A)thank the person who awarded me. Thanks, Melanie!!!!

B) Link back to her site...see above.

C)Pass the award off to fifteen great bloggers. Hmmm--Do I know fifteen bloggers? Give me a few on this one.

D) contact those fifteen to tell them about their award. See letter C.

E) tell seven things about me. Well, ok--you asked for it!

1) I love gemstones. I have a collection of them.
2) I am the lead singer in a classic rock band.
3) I fluctuate between being extremely self-conscious and self-confident.
4) I love fried food, and my waistline proves it.
5) I saw my first book, How to Meet a Guy at the Supermarket, playing in my head like a movie the whole time I was writing it.
6) I am afraid of drowning.
7) Anything with less than two legs and more than 4 is no friend of mine!

So, here are some of the bloggers that I'll admire:

1)of course, I have to list my Melanie. It may be against the rules, but I'm doing it anyway. Read it in Seven Days

2)Cyndi Tefft is a sweetie-pie, and I love her book Between.
Cyndi's Blog

3)Sessha Batto, one cool individual: Sessha's World

4)Steven Jensen, whose great book, The Poison of a Smile, will be published by Night Publishing soon, just like mine! Steve Jensen

5)Leah Petersen-what a great gal! Leah Petersen

6)Lori Carrington, a fellow Pennsylvanian, and someone who was sweet enough to feature my book one week on her great website. Lori Carrington

7))T.L. Tyson-another great Author and Authonomite. T.L. Tyson

8) Ashlynn Monroe-a Silver Publishing author. How is that working for you? I'm curious. Ashlynn Monroe

9) Karl Kronlage-just a great guy with a new baby. Wondeful Author on SPR. Karl Kronlage

10)Diane Nelson-what a woman! Talented, talented, talented...Diane Nelson

11) the amazing Noelle Pierce, Noelle Pierce

I'll continue this list in a little bit!!!!

Leah, I had to change the name because when I called the Food Lion to get permission to use their name, they said no! So, I had to change the name of the store to a ficticious one, but that's ok, because now maybe more than one supermarket will carry it??? Hopefully, anyway! Thanks for visiting my blog!

I think that's really too bad that you had to change the name-- shame on the Food Lion! They should have been honored to have their name featured in your novel! Lol, oh well. Maybe they'll change their mind once they see how well it sells and ask you to rename it! ;)

Hello Jessica! Glad to read about your award. I'm still happy about what you said about Descending on NR. Do follow me, then we can compliment each other all the time hahaha!
I'm still pleased you changed your book title to 'supermarket' rather than naming it after a specific one. It makes your book truly international rather than making Europeans say 'eh? What's a Food Lion?' xx

Sorry, me again. Do you know how to make clickable links in your post? I'll show you if you like.
