Liebster Blog Award

I have read a few of these now and have always been dubious about taking part. I mean who would be interested in finding out more about me? I am just a guy that likes to write stories. Well I guess there is one way to find out....

I guess I should start at the beginning with an invite from a great new friend Taylor Fulks:

'I wrote this novel in first person, from the mind, body, and heart of a child. I didn't want to shock or be grotesque...I wanted people to truly know the permanent damage that is inflicted, to know the depths of fear and self-loathing, and to really feel through the experiences of an abused child.'

What exactly is the Liebster Blog you may well ask, so let me enlighten you:

The purpose of the Liebster Blog Award is to recognize blogs with fewer than 200 followers that deserve a look. My assignment is to:
(a) List 11 random facts about me.
(b) Answer 11 questions Alice has sent me.
(c) Come up with 11 questions to ask other authors.
(d) Nominate and tag 11 other authors for this award (how cool is that?).

To my nominated friends—it means doing the same thing that I am doing…
(a) Post a blog linking back here to me with 11 random facts about you
(b) Answer my 11 questions
(c) Nominate 11 new bloggers to answer 11 questions you have set for them
(d) If the thought of rounding up 11 other bloggers is daunting and just a bit much with your busy schedule, just write 11 random facts about yourself and answer my questions…Come on—it’ll be fun!
OK—so here goes…
11 random facts about me

1. When I was very young I wanted to be an accountant. I always used to love numbers and still do to a certain degree.

2. I have started but not yet finished my first Novel.

3. I have foolishly signed up to run a half marathon in June..... there is only one problem.... I have not started my training yet!!! Gulp!!

4. I have two tattoo's that I love. One from when I was 18 and then another as a present to myself when I was 30.

5. I only started publishing my writing on Facebook as recently as October last year. The premise is that I take two random words and a genre and turn them into a story. Www.facebo
