My deep thanks to Kerrie at Mysteries in Paradise for recognizing Confessions of a Mystery Novelist with this terrific Sunshine Award. It’s a true honor and I’m very excited, especially coming from a blogger whose own Mysteries in Paradise is a real light in the blogosphere. Please, folks, do visit her blog; it’s a wonderful collection of reviews, fun things to do, crime fiction news and of course, all sorts of fun challenges to test our mettle.
Here are the “Sunshine Award” rules:
1. Put the logo on the blog within your post.
2. Pass the award on to 12 bloggers.
3. Link to the nominees within your post.
4. Let the nominees know they have received the award by commenting on their blogs.
5. Share the love and link to the person from whom you received this award.
As part of this award, I’ve been asked to pass it along to twelve other bloggers whose “contagious positivity and creativity inspire others in the blogging universe.” That’s a tall order for me, because I’m inspired by so many other bloggers. But here goes:
Dorte at DJs Krimiblog
Donna at Big Beat from Badsville
Cathy at Kittling: Books
Chris Well at The Thrill of it All
Rhian at It’s a Crime! (Or a Mystery…)
Karen at Euro Crime
Maxine at Petrona
Martin at Do You Write Under Your Own Name?
Elizabeth at Mystery Writing is Murder
Mason at Thoughts in Progress
Elspeth at It’s a Mystery
Alan at A Million Blogging Monkeys
I’d also like to mention a few other bloggers whom I would have listed, but they’ve already been granted the award, so I didn’t want to double up. Please, though, do visit these folks:
Norman at Crime Scraps
Craig at Crime Watch
Margaret at BooksPlease
Bernadette at Reactions to Reading
Patti at Pattinase
Thanks again, Kerrie! If this were a “boomerang award,” I’d have reciprocated : ).
