Liebster Blog Award…

I was recently nominated for this award by Amaleen Ison, an awesome online author friend and supporter. Her newest YA fantasy thriller, Remember Me is slated for release through Decadent Publishing hopefully sometime in 2013. Congratulations, Amaleen!

BTW – Amaleen has a kick-ass blog you should visit!

The rules (which incidentally are made to be broken) for the Liebster Award are:

§  Each nominee must answer the 11 questions.
§  Create 11 questions for the next nominees to answer.
§  Link back to who nominated them.
§  Choose 11 people and link them in your post.
§  Go to their page and tell them.
§  No tag backs!

My Nominees:
FYI – I’m not nominating eleven bloggers because I don’t want an author hit put out on me. I’m not kidding – authors have been known to do some crazy-ass things! I’ve decided to tag a group of fabulous up and coming MG/YA authors, so here are my choices: Lisa Orchard, Rita Monette, Alan Tucker, Kai Strand, Sara Stinson, Ann T. Bugg, and Casey Sean Harmon.
Q&A time:
Favorite Breakfast?
An Isagenix vanilla shake with frozen blueberries. Yum and I get my anti-oxidants.

Beer or Wine?
Single Malt Scotch. There is no substitute. But sadly there are no anti-oxidants.

Dog or Cat?
No  contest. Both.

Coffee or Tea?
Coffee in the wee hours of the morning. Tea in the afternoon and evening.

Winter or Summer?
I live in Canada where it’s winter for 8 months of the year. What do you think?

PC or Apple?
In my past life in the graphic trade, it was Apple. Now I use PC. What can I say, I’m adaptable.

What is your goal for 2013?
Market and promote my August 30th release of the prequel to the Last Timekeepers series: Legend of the Timekeepers. Finish first draft of The Last Timekeepers and the Dark Secret (Book 2).  Work on getting the first book of my Mysterious Tales from Fairy Falls series sold to a publisher via my agents. What else? Oh yeah—try not to go bald pulling out my hair.   

What makes your day brighter?
A hug from my hubby. A phone call from my kids. Attention from my pets. I’m sooo low maintenance.

What’s your biggest pet peeve?
Being tagged for these freaking blogging awards! LOL!

How old were you when you stopped believing in Santa Claus?
Wait—he doesn’t exist? Crap.

What do you write about?
I write MG/YA novels about adventures in time traveling and teens with psychic abilities. You know—normal, everyday stuff.
