The Pertinent Posts Award

Thank you, Myrna, for this happy award. To claim it, I have to tell you what I look for in a blog, then pass it on to seven other bloggers.

My favorite blogs are all written by writers, and writers who are at the same stage of their writing careers as I am, more or less. Also, these writers write books I’d love to beta-read (and I’d love for them to beta-read my books). In fact, that’s pretty much my bright-line: Do I want to read this writer’s work--and do I want her (or him, but usually her) to read mine?

So here’s the list:

A.L. Sonnichsen of The Green Bathtub
Authoress of Miss Snark’s First Victim
Blanche King of Writing, Queries and the Occasional Headache
Josin L. McQuein of My Bloggish Blog Thing
Kayeleen Hamblin of Kayeleen’s Creation Corner
Kelly Bryson of Book Readress
Liesl of Writer Ropes and Hopes

(And just in case you missed the link at the beginning of the post, don’t forget to check out Myrna Foster of Night Writer, who gave me the award.)

There are a bunch of other great blogs out there--in fact, I’m sure you’re thinking of a few right now. So which writers’ blogs would make your list? I look forward to finding a few more good links in the comments…

Thanks Krista.


Lets hope that we all end up in the same place, too - the top of the NYT bestseller list.

Congrats on the award! I'll have to come back in the morning to check out those links. :)

Josin, you're welcome. And yes, let's hope:)

Thank you, Amanda.

Too little, too late, but thank you!! You are so nice.

Krista Van Dolzer said...

You're never too late, Liesl!

Oh, and Myrna, you're the best!
