Thank you Tamara Philip for nominating me!

Tamara did this incredibly nice thing and nominated me for this honor

titled the “One Lovely Blog Award” and I am proud to wear that title

even if only for a few fleeting moments, weeks…

or however long it takes for it to disappear beneath the blog roll.

Being the curious individual that I am, and also being a journalist

who knows Research, Research, Research,

I began the search for the history of how this award came to be…

Alas, I found NOTHING

so I am going to make it up…

Some 75-years ago, a very nice and well-read blogger on the
World Wide Web decided to nominate original, entertaining and
truly unique blogs and thereby bring much internet traffic their way…
This blogger set out nominating blogs and sending along a set of rules
and pretty little logos to unsuspecting but worthy and talented bloggers –
and now I have been included in that very elite group!

Here are the rules:

 

  • You must thank the person who nominated you and include a link to their blog.
  • You must list the rules and display the award.
  • You must add 7 facts about yourself.
  • You must nominate 7 other bloggers and comment on one of their posts to let them know they’ve been nominated.
  • You must display the award logo and follow the blogger who nominated you.

 

And of course, we must Pay-It-Forward

Okay, here are SEVEN facts you probably never wanted to know about me:
(or already know and are incredibly bored hearing again)

  1. I was conceived in the Catskills after my parents gave up having a 2nd child and blew their cash on a “new” used car and a vacation. My sister was sleeping in the other room.
  2. I once snuck on to the set of the Merv Griffin show hoping to meet the star of the show and talk him into giving me my BIG break as an actress… my timing was off and there were no stars present, only BURLY Security Guards – ouch.
  3. I once spent over an hour on the phone with a guy I didn’t know after accidentally reaching him by dialing a WRONG number – he was just really interesting.
  4. When my oldest nephew was born the hospital was only letting the new grandparents onto the maternity floor to visit the new parents and see the child (behind glass), so I borrowed my then-boyfriend’s jacket, rolled it up and stuffed it under the peasant dress I was wearing and then had my boyfriend “assist” me saying I was having labor pains. I did get in but received lots of frowns when the “baby bump” slipped.
  5. My boyfriend (another one) was a gifted guitarist and singer and performed regularly at our local community center – the night he dedicated “Wild Thing” to me, I thought it was the MOST romantic thing ever to happen to me in all of my 15-years!
  6. During an argument with my husband back in the days when we used 5 1/4-inch floppy disks in our computers I got so angry because he was winning (I was right, he was just more stubborn!) I threatened to erase all of his disks with magnets if I didn’t get my way. P.S.: I didn’t on both counts.
  7. I feel incredibly lucky to be a part of Vanilla Heart Publishing along with incredible talents like Angela Kay Austin, Charmaine Gordon, Lauren Shiro, Malcolm Campbell, Neva Squires-Rodriguez, Susan Berry & Tamara Philip and to work under the auspices of the ingenious Kimberlee Williams. (who, by the way, ALL deserve this prestigious award…)

I hereby nominate my fellow authors at VHP & others on FaceBook – yes, even those who have been nominated previously – because they are truly among the most deserving of recognition and admiration.
(It is entirely up to them to accept the challenge
or silently curse me out
)

Whatever, please go visit all of their blogs,
I promise you that you will enjoy.

An audio copy of Bartlett’s Rule is being auctioned off. 

Bartlett's Rule by Chelle Cordero

Bartlett’s Rule by Chelle Cordero

BARTLETT’S RULE shares the story of Lon and Paige’s love affair; a romance filled with hardship, emotion, danger and triumph. Falling in love was never the challenge; being there for each other, knowing just what to say and making it work is the real test. Paige and Lon are real; they are human, they cry and they laugh. Paige has to learn to trust. Lon has to learn to be patient.

At the conclusion of the auction, Chelle will send the winner the code
to download the book to the device or computer of their choice directly from Audible.com

Malcolm Campbell’s review  of Bartlett’s Rule

5 star review
At first glance, Paige Andrews’ approach to celebrity writer and celebrated womanizer Lon Bartlett is reminiscent of a child’s first day at the beach, a child who runs down to the incoming waves only to run back to the safety of the dunes beyond the water’s reach, and then again, and then again. Indeed, she desperately wants her evolving relationship to be as spontaneous and carefree as first love.But in looking closer, as both lovers and mad men are apt to do, Lon sees that behind Paige’s engaging smile lie painful memories of man named Hal who raped her and all but took away her ability to get close to anyone again. Lon’s best intentions trigger Paige’s worst fears.

“Bartlett’s Rule” is an easy-to-read novel about difficult-to-resolve issues for rape survivors and the prospective significant others in their lives. For Paige and Lon, sorting out the boundaries of trust and the limits of patience is a treacherous undertaking because they are very much in the public eye and because Hal’s arrogant needs are not yet satisfied.

Unfortunately, Paige’s dysfunctional family is also not out of sight and out of mind, providing additional twists and turns in the plot to keep readers guessing about choices and outcomes until the last page.

Read the first chapter of A Chaunce of Riches on

D. Renee Bagby Presents First Chapters

The day that Ben Johnson was hired as a bodyguard for some rich widow and her kid, he never expected to be working for the woman who had abandoned him just when he had needed her the most so many years before. Damn it all, he still wanted her. Samantha Chaunce never thought she would see him again. She never thought she would have to explain why she married the rich man over the man she had sworn she once loved. And she certainly never expected to find out that her rich husband had been murdered and fingers were pointing to her former lover.
