Tis Award Season! (And Blogs to Check Out)

Award News:

The Christy Awards were announced on Monday and I couldn’t think of a more deserving group of nominees!

Special congrats to the amazing Jill Williamson for her second Christy Award in two years in the Visionary category. If you’ve read By Darkness Hid, To Darkness Fled or From Darkness Won, you’d understand exactly why.

The Carol Award finalists (ACFW Book of the Year) were also announced this week! Also – all amazing and deserving authors!

Special congrats to Melanie Dobson, who is a huge inspiration and support to my own writing! She’s a finalist in two categories – for Love Finds You in Homestead and Silent Order.

 

Some fun blogs to check out:

Andrea Friesen’s Simply Pink – Event Planner/Caterer Extraordinnaire and her blogs are too fun!

Jon Acuff, the author of Quitter and blogger/author of Stuff Christians Like, has a phenomenal blog on leadership/business/publishing/more. His post today was “Three Things Publishers look for in new authors” – good stuff.

Finally, you must check out this guest post on Michael Hyatt’s blog about productivity and the theories that will hopefully cut off bad habits of multitasking and more. (I’m still working on that, though.)
