2012 Blog of the Year

Blog of the Year Award 1 star jpeg


What a nice surprise – to open my email to a Blog of the Year badge from my literary mentor and friend, Ron Pruitt. Please check out his book As the Crow Flies on Amazon.com. He is a fantastic storyteller. http://www.amazon.com/As-Crow-Flies-Ron-Pruitt/dp/142415586X/ref=sr_1_3?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1355872837&sr=1-3&keywords=ron+pruitt

It’s always nice to be recognized by a reader, friend, and fellow writer.


I’d like to nominate some favorite blogs of my own. Here they are:
