Thanks to Peter Denton, my blog has been nominated for The Versatile Blogger award.
Why Do I Blog
I started blogging to clean the clutter out of my head so that I could focus on my own writing project. As my blog has progressed over the past year I’ve realized that I like to help promote other authors with their projects. Recently I started accepting books directly from authors and publishers to add to my review list. Thank you everyone for your support. I have a wonderful list of new books to review and you’ll be able to soon read about them on my blog.
The Versatile Blogger Award
The rules of this nomination are to:
- Thank the award-giver and link back to them in your post.
- Share 7 things about yourself.

#1 The Award-Giver
Peter Denton is an active blogger from Sheffield, England who writes short stories, Flash Fiction and some scripts. Peter uses his Kindle to discover new authors; you can read about it in his post, Another Reason To Buy A Kindle. Regardless of the ereader you use, I bet you could take Peter’s suggestion and discover some amazing new stories and authors.
#2. Seven things about me:
- Originally from Boston although I’ve (mostly) lost my New England accent
- Voluntarily amputated my right leg above the knee in 2010 after suffering with severe arthritis for 20 years
- Pet lover – have both a dog and a cat who tolerate each other
- If it involves the oceans, I’m game!
- Favorite TV Show = M*A*S*H
- I left Massachusetts – with a college on every corner – to go to college in the wild woods of West Virginia; and I loved it!
- Big Bruce Springsteen Fan!
