Weekly Wrap Up + Awards!
This has been quite a week! Wrapped up the A to Z Challenge last Saturday, which was so much fun! I really enjoyed meeting everyone. And then I found out that two of my novellas have been contracted with the winner of the Shamrock Challenge being released in June. Wow! I’ve definitely been pinching myself.
No progress meter to share this week. I’ll get back to that within the next couple of weeks.
- http://smallstepstobigchange.com/?p=387 — That article has great tips on decluttering email, which is something I’ve been trying to conquer. haha
- http://live-your-love.com/kindle-publishing-blog/ — This one is about publishing your blog on Kindle and how it could expand your readership (as well as bring in a little moolah).
- http://www.kazmahoney.com/2011/05/03/spring-into-summer-sis-50kwriting-challenge/ — Wanting to get a jumpstart on your next project? Here’s a 50k summer writing challenge.
- http://fantasy-faction.com/2011/the-dreaded-adverb-problem — Last but not least, this one is craft related and discusses adverbs in depth.
Thanks for the Versatile Blogger Award, C R Ward!
This award requires that you
1. Link back to the awarder (which I’ve done above)
2. Share 7 things about yourself.
3. Award this to 10-15 newly discovered bloggers
4. Tell said bloggers they have an award waiting.
My Seven Things:
1. I adore cats. They’re so awesome.
2. I’m also a huge fan of Finland, that country between Sweden and Russia. =P I’ve visited there 3 times now.
3. I much prefer the cold to heat. With that in mind, Winter is my favorite season.
4. I almost got an English/History double major in college, but I decided that I wanted to graduate sooner than later.
5. I love music. Trance, Rock, and Symphonic Goth Metal are some of my favorites, but I listen to all kinds.
6. I’m not really a morning person. I prefer staying up late at night.
7. I love gaming. PC games, console games, board games, and, heck, card games too! I love to play.
My list of people are:

Thank you! What a lovely surprise – and from a super blog too! I'll pass it on, promise. And I laughed at your 7 surprising things – especially the first 3 since they apply to me too (but from then on…)
Thank you so much for this award. I have injured myself and am not in shape to do all the forwarding, etc. right now. I will pick it up, mention it came from you, and add it to the other awards I just received. Once I get to them everyone will know a whole lot of stuff about me. I am so glad I found you during the challenge and I think you really had one of the most interesting themes. I plan to go back and read more. Congratulations on the award, you really deserve it.–Inger
You're welcome, Lauracea! Thank you so much on the compliment. 😀 It's really awesome that they applied to you too! I haven't met very many people who know about Finland. lol Much less, are fans of it.
Inger, you're very welcome! That's horrible that you're injured. I hope you get to feeling better. I'm really glad you enjoyed my theme. Thank you! =)
Congrats on your contracts and thanks for the award and the links!
