Hello bloggers! It’s nice to be back!

Forced exiles are the best, EVER. I left this wonderful world of books and reading advice to finish off my book –  popping in every now and again just to check out on the latest gossip, but this doesn’t count. The day I decided to get back I found not 1 but 2 awards, plus a third one which I was notified of as I waited for our flight to the US a few weeks ago.

3 awards in a matter of a few weeks. Mmmm, something’s telling me that I’m more popular when I’m NOT posting than when I AM…are the awards a subtle message to keep away? Go on, blogging friends, you can be frank with me, I’m an author now, you know? I finished my tween novel and it’s looking pretty decent too, all 240 A4 double sided pages, roughly stuck in a black folder, but more on this in future posts.

Dearie me, where are my manners? All awards, regardless of the REAL motives behind them (exiles breed suspicion) call for appropriate thanking rites and expressions of gratitude, so here we go.

Award 1: the Liebster Award,Liebster_Ribbon for which the rules of acceptance are as follows:

* Answer the 11 questions provided. * Create 11 questions for the next nominees to answer. * Link back to the one who nominated you. * Choose 11 people and link them in your post. * Go to their page and tell them. * No tag backs!

Questions answered – thank you Danielle @ Ever on Word http://everonword.wordpress.com/ , it’s going to be tough to match their originality! Here’s my list of new questions for my nominees, mostly yes/no questions so not a hard task to answer:

1. what was your first record you bought?

2. what is your favourite dish? (if you cook, if not just one you pick out of a take away menu!)

3. do you bite your nails?

4 do you sleep well at night?

5 out of the following books, which one is your favourite, or which one would you buy? The Hobbit, Catch 22 or the latest by Sophie Kinsella? 

6 are you fed up with electronic devices?

7 if you could choose your ideal day, what would you do without for 24 hours? your phone/s, TV or car?

8 would you eat steak for breakfast?

9 did you ever tell somebody they looked nice but secretly thought they didn’t, just to make them feel better about themselves?

10 ….bringing the animosity down a touch: what’s your favourite colour?

11 if you were to pick a book genre right here and right now, what would it be? Children’s books, YA, comedy, horror, thriller, detective?

As for my nominees, here they are, and apologies to those who have already been nominated for the same award – you obviously deserve a double!

  1. Did I get the right logo?!?

  2. Hi G&Bs! Congratulations on finishing your book. That’s so exciting! And congratulations on your awards, too. Very deserving!
    I slipped on over to Danielle’s blog and read your answers. I laughed at the court injunction. 🙂 It’s always fun to learn a little more about favorite bloggers.
    Thanks so much for nominating me for a Liebster Award. I think that’s my favorite logo of the ones that go around for this award. Here are my answers to the questions:
    1. what was your first record you bought? — I don’t remember, but my mother bought my first album for me. It was James Taylor’s Mud Slide Slim.
    2. what is your favourite dish? (if you cook, if not just one you pick out of a take away menu!) — Chicken Divan Crepes.
    3. do you bite your nails? — No
    4 do you sleep well at night? — No
    5 out of the following books, which one is your favourite, or which one would you buy? The Hobbit, Catch 22 or the latest by Sophie Kinsella? — I would buy the latest by Sophie Kinsella
    6 are you fed up with electronic devices? — Not yet. 🙂
    7 if you could choose your ideal day, what would you do without for 24 hours? your phone/s, TV or car? — Definitely phone.
    8 would you eat steak for breakfast? — Absolutely! With Bernaise Sauce!
    9 did you ever tell somebody they looked nice but secretly thought they didn’t, just to make them feel better about themselves? — Yep
    10 ….bringing the animosity down a touch: what’s your favourite colour? — You might guess pink, but my favorite is yellow.
    11 if you were to pick a book genre right here and right now, what would it be? Children’s books, YA, comedy, horror, thriller, detective? — Detective for sure.

    Thanks, G&Bs! This was fun! 🙂

    • Thanks Maddie! Good fun reading your answers too, especially the steak question. I like people with a healthy appetite – I’m one of them – who start the day in style. Bernaise sauce? Yummy! I had to google it, but now that I’ve been enlightened, I see the perfect match with beef!
      Thanks for taking the time to pop round,
      G&B (I agree, it’s less of a mouthful!)
