I Do Declare (Winner & an Award)

The lovely and talented Lisa D. Gibson at YA Literature Lover has bestowed upon me the "One Lovely Blog Award." And I'm tickled pink.  (I apologize. Something about this award makes me want to speak in dated lingo.)
But truly, I'm SO honored that a fellow blogger out there likes The (not quite) Daily Harrell.  *She likes me. She really, really likes me.*  Now if only I could get an agent to feel the same way.

Along with the right to deliver this silly acceptance speech come some responsibilities.  Three responsibilities, in fact.  They are thus:

1. Accept the award, post it on your blog together with the name of the person who has granted the award and his or her blog link.

2. Pay it forward to fifteen other blogs you have newly discovered.

3. Contact those blog owners and let them know they've been chosen. 
#1 is easy.  You got that in the first paragraph.  Sheesh, I'm good.

#2 is harder because gosh, I have to pick just fifteen blogs and there are some really fantastic ones that I've only recently started following.  So here goes (I'm trying not to duplicate my Versatile Blogger nominees - so if you're not on here, you know why):
1. A Bibliophile's Paradise: she reviews books and lists give-aways
2. Courtney Reads: details & frequent reviews
3. A Little of This & That: a bit of everything literary by an aspiring writer
4. Carol's Prints: YA author and Bookanista
5. Creepy Query Girl: a fun blog & coolest name ever
6. Crossroads: books, stories, music and all things creative
7. DJ's Life in Fiction: aspiring YA writer blogs book reviews
8.  EbyssWriter: blog for beginning writers (and she interviewed me, which is like, WAY COOL)
9. Once Upon a Time in Writer Land: aspiring YA writer on her way to the top
10.  Project 52: 52 books in 52 weeks... you get the idea
11. Supernatural Snark: reviews, interviews, awesome name
12.  The Book Butterfly: detailed reviews & some give-aways too
13.  The Michelle Show: fellow lawyer & YA author. what's not to love?
14. The Writing of Jennifer Albin: new blog with some nice posts on craft
15. Lost in Believing: cool author and blogger (and she's only 14 - wow!)

#3 is a total pain in the rear and all of you nominees can hate me now because you're about to have to do it too. :p  So there!

Oh, but wait... you wanted to know who won my super-fantastic SOUL SCREAMERS give-away, didn't you?  Ha, ha, made you wait. (I'm feeling punchy tonight... it's lack of sleep.)
And the winner is ... *drums rolling on, and on, and on, forever... just get on with it, already!*
And while you're at it, check out her blog too!

OMG thank you so much! I've been dying to read this series, but always been afraid to start it. I will definitely read them now and review them on the blog. I hear so many great things about this series.

Thank you again!!
