Thanks to Laura B! And I promise the "I've got an agent" post soon!

I am the recent recipient of the Liebster award given to me by Laura Barnes at her Laura B Writer blog.

The goal of this award is to spotlight up and coming bloggers who currently have less than 200 followers. The rules of the award are:

1. Thank the giver and link back to the blogger who gave it to you.
2. Reveal your top 5 picks and let them know by leaving a comment on their blog.
3. Copy and paste the award on your blog.
4. Have faith that your followers will spread the love to other bloggers.
5. And most of all - have bloggity-blog fun!

My pics are as follows:

1. Jenna Cooper at Finding the Write Way : I like her easy writing style and fun posts. Plus she gave me an award some time back and I was just too busy to follow through with passing it on. So she gets one here :-)

2. Angelina C. Hansen at the YAScribe blog : Angelina has started a great series of interviews of her "Partners on the Path", other kidlit authors serious about publication but still on the road to becoming agented or published.

3. The folks at Cabinet of Curiosities which includes my friend and critique partner, Pat Esden. This is a new blog of five different children's authors.

4. E.R. King at Get Busy Writing who I "met" during Deana Barnhart's blogfest week. She is storming the blog scene in a quick hurry and has some really interesting posts including a recent interview with Casey McCormick of Literary Rambles fame.

5. LisaAnn at Kicked, Cornered, Bitten, and Chased who I see has already gotten this award, so I release her from passing it on unless she chooses to. I just love her blog and adventures as an animal trainer. I remember visiting Shackleford Island on the Outer Banks of NC and meeting a woman who was a wildlife biologist with a specialty in feral horses. My thought was "wait, how come nobody told me that was a job? I might have done more work in science class!" Anyway, enjoy this up and coming writer's blog about animals and writing.


  1. Congrats! This was a fun award, wasn't it?

    I can't wait to hear about your new agent!! Post soon, please!

  2. Good picks, JRo! Glad I could award such an awesome blog :)

  3. Thanks for the award! I truly appreciate it!

  4. Thanks, Jaye. And it was my turn to post, so I got to choose who to pass it on to :)


Hey, do you ever wonder why they call it 'your two cents?'
