I would like to thank Rose. This evening I was given the Liebster Blog Award. It is a German term for ‘dearest’ and is given to up-and-coming bloggers. If you would like to check out Rose’s blog you can click here and drop by.
I hear someone in the crowd shouting, “Speech, speech, speech!” So I will make them happy…
I started this path two years ago and I have met many new friends, signed some books, and I have lived out a dream I had in high school many, many moons ago. I have learned how to take rejection in stride, I learned that authors spend all the money they make at conventions on booze, and I got to read at Horrorfind 13 in Gettysburg. Today I read a review that didn’t praise me, but didn’t call me out either. Today I found out I won an award for my words on trying to get this writing thing going and what a new writer has to endure to survive and grow. Most of all, I learned I made the right choice in pursuing this dream. The ride is just getting started, so buckle up, and keep your hands and feet inside the car…it’s going to be a wild ride.
Well the party has started, there is beer to be consumed, and I think I am really just going to go to bed.
