Smorgasbord Blogger Daily

For the few of you who are not aware of the #BloggersBash which is taking place this year on June 10th…. there is an opportunity to vote for your favourite blog in one of several categories. Do you have a blogging pal that you can imagine spending time face to face with.. is there one who makes you laugh, informs you or who inspires you.. head over to Sasha Black and follow the links to make a blogger’s day.. …

Howdy folks, if you haven’t already, then you need to get your nominations in for the Annual Bloggers Bash Awards. There’s only 4 days left to nominate. Nominations close on the 8th May at midnight because voting opens on the 18th.

For those that don’t know, the Annual Bloggers Bash is an annual get together for all bloggers from all platforms from all countries. As part of the get together we host a set of awards, nominated and voted for by you the bloggers and readers.

To nominate, go here, and fill out all the relevant information:

Time for the Lisa Burton radio show via the blog of author C.S. Boyack… Lisa is quite the character herself and she loves nothing more than bringing out the best in characters from other books… this week it is Finn and his friend Cain from the book Sarah by Teri Polen.

Coming at you with one, point twenty-one jigawatts of power, all across the known galaxy and into the spiritual realms, this is Lisa Burton Radio, the only show out there that interviews the characters from the books you love. I’m your host, Lisa the robot girl, and with me today is Finn McLachlan. He and his friend Cain have been observing some pretty unusual situations lately. “Welcome to the show, Finn.”

Discover more about Finn and the other characters and plot of Sarah by Teri Polen:

I won’t go into the day I have had because it is churlish to moan about one day that is less than stellar.. but as soon as I saw this post I knew I had found the antidote…..homemade biscuits as part of a balanced diet is a much better approach than buying the packet on offer that has been chemically enhanced!   Anyway here are some treacle spiced biscuits courtesy of Cooking at zero degrees? That’s because it is where we live; Greenwich, London.

Oh, window cleaners arriving first thing tomorrow and there are no biscuits in the house to go with their pots of tea. The nearest shop is closed, so it’s a rummage through the cupboard to see what can be baked. It is these: quickly put together, moulded, cooled in the fridge and then baked for about 10-15 minutes. A biscuit with a cinnamon and mixed spice flavour. I know they go well with tea – there were none left after the window cleaners finished their last cup. Makes about 12 thick biscuits, or 18 thinner ones.

Get the rest of the recipe and start jumping:

Finally.. you are aware that I am very keen to encourage readers of books to review them and Susan Toy has put out a request for book reviewers for the 150 of the authors who have feen featured in her Reading Recommendations.. (including me)..

I’m hoping that readers of this blog will take my request seriously and consider reading to write reviews for the more than 150 Authors I’ve promoted on my blog, Reading Recommendations. I posted to that blog today and addressed all the authors there, Reading Recommendations … Spring Cleaning, telling them I’ve cleaned up the lists a bit. I immediately received messages from several of those authors, offering me reciprocal promotion for my own writing, and one also requesting titles he could review.

So I thought I would open this up to everyone, readers included – those who don’t happen to also be authors themselves. I ask that you look through the lists on that blog and consider writing a review of books you may have already read, or let me know if you have written a favourable review of any that I may then repost on the reading recommendations reviewed blog. Or, if you discover an author you’d like to interview or review, let me know and I will help you contact them.

Read the rest of the post and offer your services.. having read many of the reviews of those who follow this blog.. I know that you write interesting, constructive and well written reviews… why not help Susan out:
