New design and blog award

Last week the lovely Sia Mckye awarded this blog the Meat and Potatoes blog award. It tells you that the blog content is more than fluff but offers some solid information. Sia passed this award to five bloggers and I in turn am to do the same.

"This prestigious award goes to a particular group of wise and experienced bloggers who have proven themselves over the course of time, trials, and tribulations.
If you're looking to follow someone’s guidance for writing, publishing, promotion, and thought provoking articles, then I suggest you look at this group:

1) Marilyn Brant's warm and witty outlook on publishing and great marketing advice at Brant Flakes.
2) The absolute fabulous and right on multi-published authors over at Boxing the Octopus.
3) The tongue-in-cheek Joel Stickley at How to Write Well Badly.
4) Homey romantic fun at author Linda Kage's Blog Page.
5) Amazing over caffeinated author Talli Rolland from across the pond.
If you get a chance pop in and say hi to these bloggers- follow them and you won't be sorry you did.

In other news I've updated both my blog design and my website for the summer. Pop on over to and let me know what you think. Cheers~
