It’s Six Sentence Sunday and I’m off gallivanting at the beach for the day, but I have some exciting news to share: I just signed a contract with my publisher, Lyrical Press for my latest novel, TWELFTH SUN.
SQUEEE! I’ll definitely be doing a blog post about it next week, LOL!.
And I will be back in the SSS swing of things next Sunday. In the meantime, may I suggest these writers who always do a fantastic job in making me eager to check their Six snippets each week:
The wonderfully prolific Kitt Crescendo recently nominated me for the One Lovely Blogger award. If you’re not familiar with Kitt’s blog theinnerwildkat you need to hop over and start reading pronto. She’s brilliantly creative and always delivers a thought-provoking post. Thanks for the nomination, Kitt!
So how does this particular award work? Well, to start I’m supposed to share seven random tidbits about moi. Yes I realize the anticipation is tantamount to a lunar shuttle launch, but try to restrain yourself while I collect my thoughts. 😉
Ready? Here goes:
I’ve always been a romantically idealistic dreamer. You never expected that, right? In high school I was known as “the Starchild.”
I am addicted to most anything related to Sherlock Holmes, especially the BBC series SHERLOCK, and Robert Downey Jr.’s brilliant portrayal of my favorite detective. I’m currently suffering from Benedict Cumberbatch withdrawal.
I love disaster movies and plague movies. They’re a guilty pleasure. The strange part is I tend to think they fall flat once the disaster happens. I love the spine-tingling string of circumstances and discoveries that lead to the ‘event,’ but not so much the aftermath.
I was collecting anime and manga before most people knew what it was, and have a pristine collection. Hmmm…must throw some of that stuff on eBay.
I am in love with Aloysius Pendergast. My world will come to a screeching grinding halt on December 11, 2012, when Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child release the next book in their series. Time must/will stand still until I can devour it.
I love warm windy days and stormy skies, especially together.
As a teen, I volunteered for the Red Cross and held multiple medical certifications.
Now for the Rules of Participation:
Thank the person who nominated you and link back to their blog.
Thanks, again, Kitt!
List seven random things about yourself.
Done! Riveting facts above.
Nominate fifteen other awesome bloggers.
Wow, fifteen is a lot, but here are my nominees for those of who’d like to participate:
Hey, everyone and happy Thursday! I’m skipping my maybe-might-become-weekly-haven’t-decided-yet Thursday Thirteen because I’m excited to say Kathleen Doyle nominated me for the Sunshine Award. Wow! If you haven’t figured it out by now, I tend to get jazzed about these things. 😀 Kathleen, thanks so much for thinking of me and my humble blogging haunt.
So how does the Sunshine Award work? ‘Tis fairly simple:
Thank the blogger who nominated you *waving to Kathleen again*
Post the award icon (see above. Nice, huh?)
Answer the questions below
Nominate ten other bloggers.
Fun, right? And you knoooow you won’t be able to sleep until you find out what my favorite color is. Make yourself comfy and I promise not to keep you in suspense. 😉
What is your favorite Christmas/festive movie? A Christmas Carol. I can’t tell you how many different versions I’ve seen. I never tire of seeing this tale retold. Definitely my favorite Christmas movie, but I also have an extreme fondness for Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer and Will Farrel’s Elf.
What is your favorite flower? I’m a traditional romantic. I’ve always loved red roses best.
What is your favorite non-alcoholic beverage? As boring as it sounds, water. I drink it constantly. I don’t like sodas, or any type of sweet drink. I do love my Keurig coffee maker but I can only drink so much coffee before my stomach protests.
What is your passion? My hubby. Isn’t that romantic? 🙂
Okay, the love of my life aside, writing is definitely numero uno, but I also love reading, history, folktales and cats.
What is your favorite time of year? Spring. Because everything is so new and green and lush, with the promise of summer hovering around the corner. After the cold and stark desolation of winter, I love the rebirth spring ushers in.
What is your favorite time of day? Twilight, when the fading light is laced with threads of pewter and silver. It’s positively magical.
What is your favorite physical activity? I love to dance! And I play a wicked game of ping-pong (stop laughing).
What is your favorite vacation? Favorite vacation spot: I love the beach, coastal towns and seaports. The eastern seaboard is like a second home but I still love visiting it several times a year. Favorite vacation memory: Sedona, Arizona. Red rock, blue skies, artisans everywhere, and Native American hoop dancing that was just amazing. Oh, and I ate rattlesnake!
Now I’m supposed to nominate ten other people for this award. Here they are, blogging buddies and writers who create fantastic worlds:
I hope you enjoy these blogs as much as I do. I’m a subscriber to each and every one, and always look forward to the diverse blogging posts they bring!
Oh . . . I seem to have overlooked that color thing. How dreadfully remiss of me. Actually, it’s a toss-up between blue and green. Still comfy? Good. When I figure it out, I’ll let you know. Stay tuned. 😀
