Stylish Blogger Award

by Madeleine Rex

The super sweet Yahong Chi was awarded the “Stylish Blogger Award” and was darling enough to pass it on to me! (Thank you!)

As most awards do, this one comes with a single requirement – that you list seven things about yourself. I’ve posted similar lists before, so I am going to take a little creative liberty here and list seven things related to my book, The Lemonites.

1. It’s set in California. I have been to California only twice and never ran across a lemon orchard (probably because you don’t see many orchards in San Diego…).

2. Pepto, my MC, loves to run. I love the feeling of having run as opposed to the way I feel while in the act of running (i.e. like I’m about to keel over), but I tend to bestow the love of running upon the protagonists in my books. It’s an attribute I admire.

3. The camp cook’s name is Hector.

4. Hector has a box of Spongebob Band-Aids.

5. Dr. Paltine, Pepto’s therapist, loves pumpkin bread.

6. Pepto finds a total of four journals left in his cabin, each a different color.

7. I have my characters punch walls at various points throughout the book. It’s my preferred way of expressing rage without using swear words or actually harming people. (Well, not my preferred way of expressing my own rage. I, uh, prefer alternatives that don’t involve bloody knuckles.)

And there you have it! A little sneak-peek into the world of Pepto Polt.

It is now my honor to send this award to five fabulously stylish bloggers (some of whom I might have given awards to before – they deserve as many as they can get!):

Linna from 21 Pages

Audrey from holes In My brain

Emilia from Punk Writer Kid

Susan from, well, Susan Dennard’s Blog

Aleeza from Aleeza Reads and Writes

I would “recommend” these blogs to you (and the bloggers, for that matter. They’re so wonderful), but that seems like a mellow way to put “YOU MUST READ THESE BLOGS.”

So, there you have it. YOU MUST READ THESE BLOGS.
