Such an awesome quote from our grand prize winner, Nicole Lee:

"Books are the door to imagination, a kingdom of knowledge, adventures and romance, but ultimately they are the door to our hearts."

Thank you, Katy Huth Jones, for nominating me for the One Lovely Blogger Award.

 I understand I am supposed to nominate 7 other lovely bloggers for the next award, and then reveal 7 secrets about myself.

I nominate, in no particular order,

Sara Barnard, okay, she's my daughter, she gets first billing ~ she's also a terrific writer ~ check out her historical romance novel, A Heart on Hold (see sidebar).

Carolyn Arnold, blogger, author of super crime fiction, Ties That Bind (and more), and friend to indie authors everywhere ~ Celebrating Authors is her fabulous web page!

Sandy Wolter, fantastic author of paranormal romance such as Maggie Mae, she also runs a fantastic blog called Sandy's Spotlights that does a wonderful job for indies!

Katie Jennings, lovely fantasy author of The Dryad Quartet (and more), and another big help to other indie authors ~ check out her Book Trailer page to see what I mean!

Diane Rapp, another lovely fantasy author and a super contest organizer. Check out her blog and her FB group page, Sweet Tweets.  It's a great place to tweet up other authors!

Carmen De Sousa, best selling romance author and super-blogger. Her new book is Entangled Dreams.  She has also helped me out on many occasions with her expertise.

Ashley Fontainne, best selling author of Accountable to None, host of blog-talk radio, and so much more! Check out Ashley's Eviscerating the Snake series ~ bold new covers!

And now for the 7 secrets reveal...hmmm, my life's an open book! (No pun intended)

1. I can wiggle my ears on command
2. I love to sing
3. I really don't like crowds or small spaces
4. My hometown was the inspiration for the town in The Phantom books
5. I misspelled my daughter's middle name on her birth certificate ~ I was on powerful antibiotics that affected my thinking (that's my story and I'm sticking to it)!
6. My husband and I have a secret "whistle" to communicate when we get separated in a store or in a crowd of any kind.
7. My nickname is ... Beanie!

Okay, ya happy now?  To find out the goods on the other lovely bloggers, visit their pages!
