My Award

Quote of the day from Hilary Mantel:

"Unlike the historian, the novelist doesn't operate through hindsight. She lives inside the consciousness of her characters for whom the future is blank."

I've won an award! No, unlike Hilary Mantel, nobody has yet given me an award for my writing.
But thank you to Fi and her Magical Writing Haven
and to

for giving me the

'One Lovely Blog Award'.

Here are the rules for the award: (For those of you who hate chain letters, it's ok, you won't get bad luck if you don't comply, and I'm afraid I can't promise you thirty thousand books by next week)

Most important:
Accept the award! Then post it on your blog together with the name of the person who has granted the award and their blog link.

Pass the award on to 15 other blogs that you've newly discovered.

Remember to contact the bloggers to let them know they have been chosen for this award.

Here are my award winners: I'm afraid I can't think of 15 right now, but here are 10 it is definitely worth your time checking out:

The Secret Writer
Nevets QST
Jen Black Author
The Literary Project
Veggiebox (author Aliya Whiteley)
Park Benches and Bookends
Frances Garrood
Historical Belles and Beaus
The Virtual Victorian
Alis Hawkins

Macmillan New Writers - I haven't included you all, so it leaves space for you to do this too if you feel like it.


  1. This is almost too funny...

    I visited your blog this morning because I enjoy following your blog and chose it for the “One Lovely Blog Award.” Getting more than one is like getting more than one Emmy, isn't it? So, you may pick up your award @

    but you'd be waived from having to do give out another 15! lol

  2. Gosh, two in one day! I'm deeply honoured! I'll add yours to the list!
