Melissa Meeks, after winning this award herself for her Bibliophile blog has awarded CFRB with the "I Love Your Blog Award". While she mentions me by name, this award belongs to all of you. Congratulations!
As it happens, there are some "strings" attached to this award, but they're helpful, not harmful. Here's what they are:
*display the award on your Blog
*link back to the person who gave it to you
*pay it forward & nominate 7 blogs
*add links to those seven blogs
*leave comments on their blog telling them you gave them an award
*enjoy the award
Well, I've displayed the award here and linked it back to Bibliophile's Retreat, and I am enjoying the award. Now to nominate 7 others. I can't do this in any particular order, so please forgive me if you're listed and not as high on the list as you think you should be. All seven are in the Number One position.
One such person is Michelle Sutton. She was one of the first review blogs to take on my book before the creation of CFRB. This Edgy Inspirational Author has read and reviewed more books than I care to think about. To top that off she also writes, and is recently published, works with CFBA and puts out an online magazine. This gal is a real go-getter, a true friend and wonderful sister in Christ. You can find her blog at Edgy Inspirational Author.
Another great person is Frank Creed (and those of us who know him, also know that a special thanks should go up to Cynthia MacKinnon). He authored FLASHPOINT, a remarkable work of "cyberpunk", as he calls it. You can check out his site at A Frank Review
One of my dear friends in CFRB is Caprice Hokstad, who holds us together in ways she probably isn't even aware of. She has become such an asset to us I don't know where I'd be without her help. Find out more about her and her writing at Queen of Convolution.
Then there is Laura Davis, a truly wonderful Christian woman, formerly a Gospel singer who found her voice in writing. She has been a very helpful and gracious asset to CFRB. You can find her blog at Christian Author Laura Davis
Steve Rice also comes to mind, especially since his book LEGION OF SUPERHEROES is about to be toured. (Be sure to stay tuned for that). We've butted heads over some small issues, but took up the same side on the larger issues. Steve is one of those people you just know you can trust to be totally honest, in a good sort of way. He has a unique sense of humor and insight into life that just makes him a truly great friend and Christian brother. You can find his blog at Back to the Mountains.
I'd be remiss if I didn't include my dear Catholic sister (no she's not a Catholic Sister, she's a sister in Christ who happens to be Catholic), Karina Fabian. She has contributed on many levels to CFRB, so many in fact it's hard to know where to begin. She's just one truly awesome person. You can find her blog at Virtual Book Tour de 'Net.
And finally there is a young girl who is close to my heart. She spent years in Germany as a translator, has duel citizenship in both New Zealand and Ireland, and is momentarily touring her friends in the U.S. I'm talking about Grace Bridges, author of FAITH AWAKENED. I give her credit for letting people over at the Lost Genre Guild know about CFRB. That little bit of info she shared has bolstered our number with some high quality Christian fiction writers. You can learn more about her and follow her travels at Grace Bridges.
