Honorable Mentions

This is the first of a recurring column. It will be used to thank my fellow bloggers, followers and guests for their support. It will also be used to recognize their achievements and to highlight some of the comments we exchange. As the title suggests, this is an opportunity to issue honorable mentions. I would be terribly remiss if the first honorable mention did not go to Rachael Harrie who organizes and manages the Writer's Platform-Building Campaign. Thank you Rachael. I think everything that needs to be said probably has been said already. You are an amazing person and you deserve all the credit in the world for organizing such a successful event that impacts so many authors.

I want to thank Ruth Schiffmann for nominating my blog for the Liebster Award. Thank you Ruth! Because of the buggy Blogger platform, I couldn't post a comment on her blog to thank her. I apologize, Ruth. I just checked and still can't post!

I want to thank Christy Farmer for being the very first follower to leave a comment on my blog and for being so supportive of a fellow campaigner. Thanks also, Christy, for including my blog on your Links I Love Page.

I want to thank Ishta Mercurio for taking the time for our excellent discussion on the changes coming to the publishing industry.

  2. Hi Gary, I agree about Rachael, what she has done with the Write Campaign is pure genius and she is an amazing person!

    I am flattered to be the first follower to leave a comment. The reason I was updating my "links I love" page is because I was adding winners from the "Versatile Bloggers Awards". See my blog for details and Congratulations!

  3. Hi Gary! I agree, Rachael is great. I can't even imagine how much work she puts into organizing the campaign.

    Thanks so much for the honorable mention. I am just loving meeting so many great people and reading such a wide variety of blogs. My world is truly expanding. How exciting!

    I have heard from a few others who had trouble commenting on my blog. I wish I could offer some advice.

    All best with the campaign and with your novel!

  11. Hello! Thanks for your blog comment. I look forward to reading yours.

    How are you finding Dorian Grey? Wilde and Shelley are some of my favourite authors. I sometimes think of writing as one big Bunburying escapade (in which I make monsters that gaze at me sadly from the corner).
