Beautiful Blogger Award

Wow! I am excited and surprised to announce that I was just given the "Beautiful Blogger Award". To be recognized by those who read my ramblings and those who write their own is a huge compliment and one I do not take lightly. This award was given to my by Aspasia of Blood Lines.

The recipient of the Beautiful Blogger Award must follow four rules upon receiving it:

1. Thank and link to the person that gave you the award
2. Pass the award onto 15 bloggers you've recently discovered and think are fantastic
3. Contact said Blogs and let them know they've won
4. State 7 things about yourself

I must say as honored as I am, the idea of writing seven things about myself is a bit ominous. I mean, it's not like you're here to read about me... unless I were a zombie. So, in no particular order and strictly zombie-related...

1) The first zombie movie I saw as a child was Romero's Dawn of the Dead when I was maybe 7 or 8.
2) I have had dreams about zombies since I was a child and still have them to this day.
3) Regardless of where I am, one of the first things I do is size up my surroundings in case of a zombie outbreak and have done this since I was a child. Not out of paranoia, but out of fun.

4) I was a zombie 4 years in a row for Halloween as a child.

5) I was well on my way to finishing a zombie novel until I started pouring all of my time into Zombies & Toys. It's nearly finished and I hope to have it published sometime next year.

6) Zombies & Toys has truly become a labor of love and even though I loose sleep, neglect my family, use vacation days, and put myself in debt, the friends I have made and the people I have met make up for it ten-fold.

7) Sharing my passion for zombies and Zombies & Toys with my family and having their support through it all is the shiny bow that ties the whole brain-filled package together.

So, again, thank you to Aspasia and to everyone who took the time to read my rambling. I will be listing my 15 nominated blogs this weekend.

  1. Glad you're pleased with the award. Looking forward to your book coming out!

    By the way, you're not alone--I have a zombie dream at least every couple of months. Lucky us ;)
