Silver Lining Part Two

Today must be our lucky day! Lizzie Mason of Potent Potables has given us The Silver Lining Award as well. Lizzie guest blogged over on the QueryTracker blog last month and had some awesome advice on publicity. (Lizzie wears two hats - writer and senior publicist for a big house!) Plus, she is one awesome gal. I've been hearing good things about her for quite some time from my pal Elana.

So Bethany blogged here with her choice of five recipients, and now I'm thrilled to choose five as well.

  1. Sharon Mayhew. Not only uber-friend, but uber-daring as well! Sharon braved the world of Skype to talk face-to-face with literary agent Mark McVeigh. You can read all about it on her blog, Random Thoughts.
  2. Shannon O'Donnell. I have great admiration for anyone who teaches, and judging by her other blog, she is one heck of a teacher. Her comments on our blog always buoy me, as does her blog, Book Dreaming.
  3. Carolyn V. Not only does her blog brighten my day, this gal is a delight to chat with in real life! So check out her blog, Checkerboard Squares.
  4. Alyssa Kirk. This teen has so much positive momentum going! Plus she is a darn fine writer and a sweet friend. Don't late the name of her blog scare you, as it is WIP-related: Demonic Attractions.
  5. Girl With One Eye. Because I adore her! And I love that she reinvented herself when her boys went to school. Her blog, Squirrell Amongst Lions, always keeps me coming back for more.

Okay, to be honest, I am miserable right now. There were so many more of you I wanted to pass this along to... hopefully I will get a chance soon.

Have a great weekend!

Thanks so much for the award. I love that you thought my interview was worth a mention. Skype is so cool and Mark is a great guy.

I hope you had a great weekend. I spent a good portion of my weekend with fellow blogger; Susan Fields. Oh what fun!

Congrats to the winners! And thanks for following my blog - I just love new writing buddies. And yes, Sharon and I did have to "talk blogging" for a while on her visit, I do love her blog! :)

Congrats on your well-deserved award. And congrats to all you passed the award on to. Book Dreaming is one of my most fav blogs. Shannon is such a wonderful friend. I will check out these other blogs too.

You guys are awesome. Suzette, thank you for praying for my Christopher. And for your most uplifting words over at my blog on Friday. You'll never know how comforting they were. =)
