One Lovely Blog Award

What a great New Year's gift from Lyla Campbell at Instant Human: Just Add Coffee who has just presented me with the
One Lovely Blog Award
It's Scribble City Central's first ever award, so I'm feeling pretty good about that.  And I am particularly fond of pink roses, as it so happens, which is an added bonus. 

Now all I have to do is to find 10 out of the myriad blogs I follow to send it on to.  It'll take a bit of working out, I can tell you.  But here goes:

I'm awarding it to the following (in no particular order, as they say on X-Factor), because either: they make me laugh; they inform me; they make me want to pass stuff on; they perform sterling public services to books or I just love them with infinite love and strawberry shortbread (there is no higher praise than that in my world).  You choose which you are, O excellent blogging people, and pass the award  on, please, to as many as you feel deserve it!  (10 is usual...but not mandatory.)

  1. Anne Rooney at Stroppy Author's Guide to Publishing
  2. Mary Hoffman at Book Maven
  3. Robin McKinley at Robin McKinley's Blog
  4. Gary Smailes at Bubble Cow
  5. Emma Darwin at This Itch of Writing
  6. Candy Gourlay at Notes from the Slushpile
  7. Amanda Craig at Amanda Craig
  8. Bookwitch at Bookwitch
  9. Saviour Pirotta at Sword and Sandal Kids
  10. Alan Gibbons at Campaign for the Book
  11. Fiona Dunbar at Fiona Dunbar (Yes, I know that's 11, but I never did like rules!)

PS: I would have given one to the Crabbit Old Bat at Help! I Need a Publisher too, but she's already got one.

Thank you, Lucy! Am chuffed at being number 11: I always turn the amp up to that number, and am now officially a Darling, like that other no 11 person.

@Mary--so glad you chose Kath's Steel Thistles, which is a new one for me, so I've visited at once.

@Fi--of course you are a Darling!

@Candy--now you have 2! One from me, one from Mary!

Aw, thank you, Lucy. It's my first blog award, so I'm really chuffed.

Stroppy Author said...

Oh, thank you - that's lovely :-) Will pass on, but just writing looong stroppy email to editor. You've already given it to lots I'd have chosen, though!

Ah, maybe this was the strange and inaccessible link I found this morning? It took me nowhere and is gone now. I'll have to do something about this tomorrow.

Nicola Morgan said...

Oh, HAVE I got one?! Maybe I got one and didn't do whatever you're supposed to do with it? I have a feeling I didn't have a place to put it on my shelf or something. That sounds very ungrateful. I'm not, really.

@bookwitch and @Nicola if you want link, it's at top of my blog. Just click on Instant Human: Just Add Coffee and it should take you there!

Lucy, sorry that events have overtaken me and I've not been near my regular blog. I do appreciate the award and I'll do all that when I venture from the SOD x
