  1. Hi Bev, thanks for the honor. Now I have to think of 15 people who haven't already been given this award. Hum.. so many choices.

    Looking forward to having you as a return guest on my blog.

  2. LOL. I know Penny,I know. Good luck.

    I plan to work on the interview questions this weekend.

    Have a super weekend.

  3. Thanks, Beverly, I'm honored! I will post about the Versatile Award right after I put up an announcement about my Fireseed One Book tour with all of the tour stop links! It goes live on Monday (Feb 20!).
    Hope you stop in to read the Versatile post and pop over to some of the tour stops. Thanks again!!!!

  4. Caatherine, I hope to follow your tour. Good news, too. Your lovely book arrived this week. As soon as I read the books I'm committed to review, I'll be meeting your characters. A gorgeous cover.

  5. You have a great blog, Rena. I'm happy to give you the award.

  6. Hi, Beverly. I worked with a woman, many years ago, who was an Elvis fan. I think she had all of his albums. I remember going to her home and there was Elvis memorabilia everywhere.

    CONGRATS to everyone who has received The Versatile Blogger Award from Beverly!

  7. Thank you! I need to get caught up on my awards.

  8. Good luck with getting caught up, Diane. Also, a very belated Happy Birthday to you.

  9. Susanne, Elvis was quite popular in the 50s and 60s. I have a bunch of records and then of course the modern day CDs. We went to Graceland one summer. Fascinating.

  10. I loved reading new facts about you. I also feed all sorts of animals and I am always taking nature shots! :)


  11. LOL. Soon I'll have no secrets, Jess. Thanks for stopping by.
