I WON AN AWARD!!

The Liebster Award!!
I want to say how thrilled and honored I am to have been chosen for this. Thank you to Yolanda Renee over at Defending The Pen
Rules:
Answer the presenter’s 11 questions
-Choose 11 lucky recipients
-Formulate 11 questions for them to answer
-Plaster the award on your blog

Here are Yolanda’s Questions for me:

1. What monster would you choose for a Halloween costume? A vampire

2. What superhero would you choose to be? Wonder Woman

3. What is your favorite genre, reading, and or writing, and why? My favorite genre is horror, paranormal, supernatural. I have always been very interested in the unknown. 

4. What character is most like you in any of your favorite books, read or reading or writing? It would have to be Sookie Stackhouse from Charlaine Harris’ series. She is a southern girl like me and doesn’t let anything stop her doing what needs to be done to accomplish something.

5. What is your most memorable Halloween memory? Trick or treating in my aunt and uncle’s neighborhood. They knew everyone on the block and we felt safe to go out and get candy from them. I always got lots of candy when I went through that neighborhood.

6. What is your most memorable high school memory?Being in the art and drama clubs. I had so much fun.

7. What is your favorite holiday and why? Christmas is my favorite holiday. My whole family gets together and that time of year just puts me a real mood to celebrate being with family and friends I otherwise don’t get to see throughout the year.

8. What is your most personal current wish (one that you can share)?To get my books published.

9. If you could choose any man or woman, dead or alive, who would you choose to get our country back on track and why? No one in particular comes to mind at this moment. 

10. What do you enjoy or hate about blogging, explain, maybe give a point or two for the rest of us bloggers. I enjoy it. It is fun because I can create a post about my writing or other things and get feedback from people who understand where I’m coming from. It has helped me to become a better writer. I guess one point would be to keep it fun and engaging. Another point would be is to find your niche. 

11. What is your favorite day of the week and why? It would have to be Friday. It means the week is over and I can relax because the weekend is starting. 
Here the next lucky ones: 
1. Angie Sandro at anjeasandro
I only have two lucky ones to send this award to. Will work on this. 
Here are my questions:
1. What place is your favorite to place to write and why?
2. Where would your favorite place to visit be and why?
3. Who is your favorite character in one of your books or someone else’s and why?
4. What is your favorite time of year and why?
5. Who is your favorite author and if you could talk to them what would you say?
6. What is your favorite piece of advice that you have been given about writing?
7. What advice would you give if any to up and coming writers and bloggers?
8. What is your favorite thing to eat or drink while writing or blogging?
9. What is your favorite tv show or movie and why? Is it tied into the genre you write?
10. What is your favorite childhood memory?
11. Do you prefer background noise or silence when you are writing?

Writing Update

Outline for book two is moving along. Have about half the book planned out. Worked some on book one today. Made a few changes to it and then worked on the outline for book two. Need to work on a horror screenplay I’m writing. Haven’t worked on it in a few months. Have been spending the time getting book one ready for revisions and outlining book two so I can write it in November.

Will be posting some book reviews as soon as I can. Personal life and getting ready for NaNo among other things haven’t allowed me to get them written and ready to post just yet. Hope to start posting some of them in the next week or so. Going to work on book two outline some more now. Have a good weekend everyone.
