The Liebster Award

Well this was a nice surprise… especially because I hadn’t heard about this before.

First off, I would like to thank THE GATHERING FIRE girl for nominating me. Keep your eyes on that one folks, she’s a talented writer who is not afraid of voicing her opinions. Be sure to check out her series Adventures in Harmonia.

Now, for the rules:

– Answer the 11 interview questions
– In your post, link back to the person who awarded you.
– Choose 3 other bloggers to award, focusing on those with 200 followers or below.
– Link to those bloggers in your post, then go and leave them comments to share the good news!
– Be sure to ask them 11 original questions.

Here are my answers to the 11 questions:

1. How long have you been writing?

Since I was in grade school. I was writing stories that were 8 or 9 pages long when the requirement was for 2. My high school teachers hated me for my ability to put off term papers literally to the last second, but still writing an A paper which they saw me write ten minutes before class. My first novella was in my senior high school year… The Esalin Conflict… and God was it terrible. A ripoff of every single Sci-Fi world I’d ever seen. From Star Wars to Wing Commander.
Thankfully my writing got better.

2. What is your favorite genre to read?

High Fantasy

3. What genre do you primarily write?

Urban Fantasy/Historical Fiction/Fantasy

4. What is your favorite place you’ve traveled to and/or your dream destination?


5. Who is your favorite author?

Eesh… um… If I have to choose… JRR Tolkien, Dean Koontz, amongst others. Admittedly, I don’t read much so I can’t really say.

6. What is your favorite movie?

Star Wars

7. What hobbies/pastimes do you enjoy?

Writing, video games, antique collecting, shooting.

8. Rain or sunshine?


9. Where is your favorite writing spot?


10. Describe your favorite childhood memory.

… Camping with friends.

11. And finally, the most important of all…cake or pie?


Now here are my nominees for the award! If you have already been nominated for this award, or you don’t generally participate in this kind of thing, feel free to ignore me. I won’t hold it against you, promise. 😉

    I am humbled. I will try to answer your questions, James:

    1. My best character (I’ll ignore Jack, for the time being) has to be Rachel Jones, “The Raven”. She is a very complex person, and made a great impression on me.

    2. I’ve had both, but my little black and white Springer is my current doggy companion.

    3. Pooh Bear.

    4. Too many to choose from. “Black Hills” by Dan Simmons.

    5. “Metropolis” by Fritz Lang.

    6. “Infinity goes up on trial” – Bob Dylan, “Visions of Johanna”.

    7. Too many! Charles Frazier has a very poetic command of the language.

    8. Definitely Sunshine!

    9. Bali

    10. “Band-On-The Wall” when it was still smokey, and they played real jazz.

    11. My Missus.
