Yes, I've got a little award! Amy Christine Parker has very kindly gifted the Liebster Award to me. It's an award given out by bloggers for favourite blogs with less than 200 followers and is meant to increase the traffic going to that blog. Now I have to pass the award to five other deserving blogs and tell you five things about myself that you might not know.
So here are the blogs I've chosen:
Amaleen Ison who is a writerly friend of mine. We met on Scribophile and she writes YA. Go and visit her!
JDField writes a YA urban fantasy series and is also part of my circle on Scrib.
ED Martin um, another Scrib member I know. Check her out (well, not like that).
Ok, so I can't find two more blogs that fit the criteria. Does that mean I have to forfeit telling you five things about me and only get three? So be it. I'm not going to to tell you to check out blogs I don't look at myself!
And here are
I like orchids. A LOT. I'm generally rubbish and forgetful when it comes to plants. I like them, but they don't appreciate my sporadic over/underwatering. But when it comes to orchids, which are notoriously tricksy creatures, they flourish! You might have been subjected to my triumphant tweets a couple of weeks ago when all five of my orchids started flowering at the same time and there was much wonder and smugness.
|This does not do them justice. They are GORGEOUS!|
I make a mean birthday cake. A few years ago I decided my kids should have home-made creations and set to work after a lifetime of near-religious non-baking.
I love a self-imposed deadline and set them CONSTANTLY. There's nothing I respond to better than something I decided to achieve myself. And I rarely let myself down. Bonus!
More about the agent-judged contest coming soon. The next post about it will reveal the agents and prizes on offer!!
