Annual Blog Awards!

With the new year slowly creeping up on us, it’s always a time for reflection on what we’ve done with ourselves over the last twelve calendar months. For me, it’s been a belter. My debut novel was released, it’s had some awesome and very honest reviews. Lord knows how many copies have been read, but that’s hardly important. I’ve done two signings, both went extrememly well. Met some great people. And blogged a whole lotso that you folks could be bored to tears by it all. WOOHOO! 😀

But the end of the year is also about saying thank you to the people who helped you through. And with that in mind, I give you the first Annual Blog Awards!

  1. Oh, well as recipient of the Most Consistent Commenter prize, I’d better comment now! Thank you for the award 🙂

    By the way, I’m really sorry I haven’t read Graeveburn yet, I seem to have had no time for reading lately (must be all the blog commenting I’m doing!). But I definitely will read it very soon and give you my feedback, I’m genuinely looking forward to reading it, I keep seeing it on my shelf!
