One Lovely Blog Award

You’re all probably sick of hearing about my WIP. I know I am. I just want to say that all my revisions are finally done, and after a little tweaking of my synopsis, I think it will be ready to go. Yea! Thanks for all the supportive comments. You guys are awesome! If you want to read my first chapter, you can check it out here.

On to more important things…

Almost a month ago, the very sweet Danyelle nominated me for the One Lovely Blog Award, and being the slacker that I am, I’m just now getting around to posting about it. First of all, thank you, Danyelle! I love your blog and the encouraging words you always have to share. I’d nominate you too, if you didn’t get to it first. :)

Now for the nominees:

Becca--For her upbeat posts and super-positive attitude in the often negative world of publishing. And she’s one of my awesome critters, so she gets bonus points for that. :)

TereLiz--Her blog’s only been up a couple of weeks and she already has fifteen followers! Also, she's another of my awesome critters.

Sara--For her post on writing a synopsis. The first one I’ve read that wasn’t totally intimidating, and it finally motivated me to write mine. Yea!

Elana--I know she already received this award, but I love her blog, so she’s getting it again.

Jessjordan--For making me laugh on more than one occasion.

Tori--For being a better friend than anyone deserves, and for trudging through the extremely awful first draft of my novel and still telling me she liked it. :)

Cheryl--Longtime good friend and all around great person. Also, another of my awesome beta readers.

Jill--For understanding and laughing at all of my jokes, even the ones that aren’t very funny.

The support of friends is invaluable on this daunting path to publication. I couldn’t do it without all of you! Happy Tuesday!


  1. Awwwww! This absolutely made my day, Abby :D. I love your attitude, too (not to mention your fabulous critiques for my novel.)

    Thanks for the Love!

  2. Aww! Thanks so much! I'm glad I could help out at least someone through the horrid synopsis! I think I'd prefer a synopsis over a query though lol!

    Your blog is great! You always have a mix of reads to offer and I love that! Your also full of spunk with great eyes! Keep at it girl! Can't wait to buy your book! =D

  3. What?! I got an award? That is a feast of freakin' awesomeness!

    So ... should I email you my address so you can send me my ribbon? :D

    Thank you for making my day, and for making me laugh, as well!

  4. See, this is what I'm talking about. You should all be basking in the glow of your shiny new awards ;) and instead, you're dishing out the love in return. You guys are awesome!

  5. "ready to go" meaning ready for queries??? That is so cool! May the query-gods be with you :)

  6. Congrats on finishing your WIP. And good luck with the task of finding an agent!

    Great looking blog, btw. Love it.

  7. Awards are awesome! Good luck on your next steps!

  8. I'm tired and sore from being trapped in Extensis Portfolio training for the past two days (if you're ignorant of the evil that is portfolio, consider yourself lucky) and it's 100 degrees outside, yet I can't stop smiling.

    Thanks for making my day!

  9. Abby, you are the best! You have no idea what a GREAT friend you really are! Thanks for my moment of fame I will try not to let it go to my head but ... ;)

  10. Tess--Thanks! I'm feeling a little sick about it.

    Kristal--Thank you! Glad you stopped by.

    Lady Glamis--Thank you!

    Tere--Not sure what Extensis Portfolio is, but it's sounds horrible. Glad I could add a little sunshine to your day. :) Even if it's already hot. It's over 100 here too. Totally sucks.

    Tori--By all means, let it go to your head! You deserve it. :)

  11. Good luck in the next step. And you're absolutely right--support from friends is invaluable. :D

    Keep us posted!
