Double Winner: The Versatile Blogger Award
It appears that Knight Chills is a double recipient of The Versatile Blogger Award. Last year I was fortunate enough to receive this award and this year two gifted writers sent it my way. So before I follow the rules that come with acceptance of this privilege, I want to honor them.
First up, Carole Gill who contributed with her amazing story, Memoir, which happens to rank 10th as of this writing, has graced me with this award. Carole Gill is an amazing writer of Gothic Romance. She creates characters that dazzle and frighten the reader with style and grace. You can honor me by visiting her blog: Carole Gill Official Author Blog.
And the other author who selected me is the great Blaze McRob. Blaze is one of my favorite horror writers. He dazzles us with characters that will give you the creeps and stay with you long after you've read the story. Look for Blaze in his blog Blaze McRob's Tales of Horror.
Now for the rules that bind the next recipients of this award. They are: thank and recognize the presenter of the award, reveal seven facts about yourself, and then pass the award on to up to 15 other bloggers whom you would like to recognize.
Alright, here are seven facts people might not know about me.
1. I've literally had run-ins with some famous celebrities. My most memorable encounter was when I accidentally knocked Bo Derek to the ground on a New York City Street. Don't worry, I helped her up. The woman has the most amazing eyes.
2. I used to be a die hard Mets fan and one winter wore only a team jacket for the month of December. I guess I had brain freeze.
3. When I'm alone I sing (badly). I love music.
4. I coached little league baseball when I was just 15 years old. I sure enjoyed making the umpires look silly. I'd sound smart and quote bogus rule numbers to win my arguments.
5. Sometimes when I'm teaching I speak real loud just for the fun of it. (Did it today and now my throat is sore).
6. I coached boys and girls basketball. Coached women in Puerto Rico's pro league. That was fun!
7. My first home-run as a little leaguer stunned everyone especially me, since I had my eyes closed.
Here are my choices for the award.
Lisa McCourt Hollar and her amazing blog, Jezri's Nightmares. She's a wonderful horror writer who always pens interesting articles and stories. Don't miss out on her blog. Check it out here.
Linda S. Prather features Indie authors, is an excellent writer who also has great guest bloggers providing impressive articles. And she's also a real life Paranormal Investigator. With Linda, what's not to like? Check out her blog here.
Michelle Shaw is a talented writer and poet who informs and entertains with the best of them. She shares her gift by providing a glimpse into her world and is a master at creating titles that stand out from the crowd. Read her blog here.
Nicole Ducleroir is a beautiful and talented writer who puts the "V" in versatile. Stop by her blog and I promise you won't be disappointed. Check it out here.
I urge you to look up these great writers as well. Poppet, Biola Olatunde, Alex Morgan, and M Pax.
