Walk On

The Champions Who Walked Among Us

Reader Appreciation Award – Thanks To All Of You

Writing is as much a part of me as breathing. I cannot do without it. It permeates within my body and flows through my bloodstream with all of those red and white corpuscles that keep me alive. Therefore, it is always a joyous occasion for me, when a fellow writer, or in this case, writers nominate me for an award.  Most of the writers that I know are busy, calendars full with things to do, and they are constantly writing very good stuff, trying to fulfill a deadline. So when they take the time to think of me by nominating me for an award, it is a special honor.  So this morning, I would like to say thank you to MIcki Peluso and Raani York.

Micki is the author of  And The Whippoorwill Sang.  If you haven’t read her book, please put it on your list. Her book will walk with me for the rest of my life. For more information about the book, check out my Book Review website or go directly to Micki’s website at http://mallie1025.blogspot.de.  The testimonies from people who have read the book are real and touching.

Raani is the author and friend to Jake, one of her guest bloggers that I have come to love.  Whenever he writes a blog, I am usually in stitches, laughing. She also writes promi articles that I consider among the best.  If you would like to get to know Raani’s guest blogger, or her articles about the prominence in our times, please check out her website  at: http://raaniyork.wordpress.com 

Both, Micki and Raani are great writers, and I say to them thank you.
