Super Swe-e-e-e-e-t Award

I'm flattered to have received a Super Swe-e-e-e-t Award from Jeanette Anderson http://jeanettesandersen.blogspot.com/ on September 20 (sorry for the delay in getting this up Jeanette but it is greatly appreciated)!  Her mission is to make people laugh, cry, shout, smile, frown and just enjoy reading so check out her blog and see if it works!

The Guidelines:

So, once I accept this award, the guidelines state that:

First:  I must thank the person who nominated me... of course, that's the proper thing to do! Thanks Jeanette!

Second: Answer the Super Sweet Questions (that follow below).

Third: Nominate a baker's dozen (13) to receive this award (if you can't find 13 that's okay... just find as many as you can).

“Super Sweet” Questions:
 
1. Cookies or Cake?   Cookies. Especially my mother-in-law's special oatmeal cookies!  Even tastier when eaten at the cottage.


2. Chocolate or Vanilla?    Vanilla, with lots of fresh berries.


3. What is your favorite sweet treat?   I really don't have a sweet tooth... I know, ironic considering the nature of this award, right?  But, if I had to choose it would be Godiva Chocolates.


4. When do you crave sweet things the most?   
I don't :(

5. If you had a sweet nickname, what would it be? 
My dad called me Annie Bananie (does that count)?
 


My Baker’s Dozen: I'm going to highlight the blogs of some of my special friends and favorite people, not necessarily because their content is sweet (although some of it is) but because they have touched my life in some way:

It appears that self-publishing is the wave of the future! I find it difficult to wrap my head around because it's a fairly new way to go about publishing, but it really seems to be gaining the respect it deserves amongst the writing community. I self-published a collection of non-fiction and poetry, and I don't regret it for a minute! Thanks for the great read, and for opening my eyes up to National Novel Writing Month--it may be the perfect incentive I need to get me through the last 75 pages of my novel.

Cheers!

Courtney... glad to hear you've been inspired. If you do decide to do NaNoWriMo look me up on the site and connect. I plan to do it again this year too!

Shirley, you have indeed touched my life. Thank you!
What a wonderful surprise, Anne, thank you very much. Fun questions and such a good opportunity to recognize fellow bloggers. I'm honored to be part of your Baker's Dozen any day!

Author Interview: Jack Scott, Turkey Street and Perking the Pansies

This week I'm so thrilled to welcome Jack Scott to Writing...Just Because to share his author journey and a few words of advice. Jack is the author of  Turkey Street - Jack and Liam move to Bodrum, the sequel to the best-selling memoir Perking the Pansies - Jack and Liam move to Turkey.
Here's a little taster of Turkey Street...
Six months into their Turkish affair, Jack and Liam, a gay couple from London, took lodgings in the oldest ward of Bodrum Town. If they wanted to shy away from the curtain-twitchers, they couldn’t have chosen a worse position. Their terrace overlooked Turkey Street like the balcony of Buckingham Palace and the middle-aged infidels stuck out like a couple of drunks at a temperance meeting. Against all the odds, the boys from the Smoke were welcomed into the fold by a feisty mix of eccentric locals and a select group of trailblazing expats, irresistible ladies with racy pasts and plucky presents.
Hop aboard Jack’s rainbow gulet as he navigates the choppy wa…
