Award and Update

The lovely, wonderful (and my boss at the Writer's Academy) Harley has given me another blog award and this one was too cute to not post. Check out Harley's blog too. the labotomy of a writer

The Cherry on Top Award - aka Cupcake Award

Isn't it cute! Okay, I don't really like pink but it has CupCakes!!! I want a cupcake now.  With a cherry, a strawberry and a little bit of caramel on top. (I eat weird things, don't mind me.)

She didn't list rules for the award. She gave it to 5 different blogs but I couldn't pick a fifth one, but one of them is actually 4 people, so I think it's okay.
1. Mia! Cause her blog has a title that involves toast cause she's awesome like that.
2. Melanie Golden She's cool, and I won a book when she held a contest/giveaway.
3. Simply Certifiable Crew The whole group is awesome, check out each one. Harley is one, hehehe.
4. Alliterative Allomorph Awesome blog that had a fun blogfest.

Now for the update part. What am I updating about? The author/book suggestion blog post from a few weeks ago. This is the results of the open post where people could pick any author they wanted and I'd try to get an interview with them (try, as to whether or not the author wants to be interviewed by me). I also had the book suggestions and these are the ones that I haven't already read, and will consider reading. A few aren't on the list, including one that didn't follow the rules of the post *cough*Twilight*cough*. ;-)

Authors I will try and interview:
John Green
Kristie Cook (I follow her blog even)
Suzanne Collins
Carrie Ryan
Kat Richardson
Maureen Johnson
Stephen King
Andrea Cremer (And her blog)
Kiersten White (And her blog)

Some are more likely than others but we'll wait and see. I like to have read at least one book by an author that I interview but that may not always be the case. I haven't started trying to ask for interviews, yet. I'm trying to figure out the best approach. And I need questions to ask them. So, I'll be asking for more reader help in the near future.

Book list of possible books to read, though I have enough on my reading list already:
Hex Hall
Before I Fall
Hunger Games (own)
The Historian (own)
Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (might own but don't remember)
Some Girls Are
The Sky is Everywhere
The Body Finder
North of Beautiful

The end.

Congrats on the cute award.
Mmm, now I want a cupcake.

Dawn Embers said...

Thanks Elana and Karen.

I'm still hoping for a real cupcake. Did find some candle wax cubes for a burner that smalls like cupcakes. At Walmart of all places, so I got it.
