I am tickled pink at receiving the Sunshine Award from a much admired blogger, writer and Dominant Master, Sir Joseph McNamara (@JMcNamara4), grand financier and world traveller who hailed from New-York City and his magisterial fortress. Being in the company of glamorous and talented bloggers such as Geminiswords, Penelope Jones, Renee Rose, Adaline Raine, Ana Vitsky, Green Eyed Gheisha, Alice Dark, Genevieve Dewey and MariMar makes this award an awesome experience for this timid scribbler.

@jennybennyk) who hails from http://itsjennythewren.wordpress.com/ (please visit if you have not yet!) for nominating me for the Very Inspiring Blog Award. I am doubly grateful to Jenny, a fellow blogger on the #AtoZ trail, first for the opportunity to visit her posts at leisure, and then also (more about it on one of my #atozchallenge posts to follow) ~ since I expect an account of her trip to Japan all those years back!
There is a ritual, and it starts with boring the readers with seven personal things ~ erm… ~ and then suggest fifteen nominees… Here goes:
Happy Few, bloggers/writers who deserve enthusiastic following:

It’s been a funny Friday. I started the day well, when I left for the gym leaving the house keys behind the (closed) door. Luckily I had a few coins in the car which allowed me later to buy cod n’ chips at the Bubble & Squeak (very nice and all for a fiver). My Wi-Fi reaches the drive but – sadly – I did not have my iPad (or a book!) with me, just my little Android phone. So had music and Twitter, great relief for the soul. I managed just about to keep up with events, but lost a few hours writing, hence this belated and short post!
So, Mr Z has done his floatation. A good start for the company and we wish well to those enhanced billionaires! The graffiti artist who decorated Mr Z’ office in LA – temporarily forgot his name, he’s also known as
@SashaGrey’s bf – must have done well, he got future shares options for his work! My central character – Julien – has a page, evidently, and I’m not terribly happy with it. This is rather funny, since the novel has stalled a month ago, so Julien’s existence is precarious anyway. But then how many fictitious characters do you think we have on FB? Not her, surely! Smiles… Have a good week-end.
He’s the central character of “Infinity Blade: Awakening”, and, of course, he is you, if, like me, you are addicted to the game. If you are, then you know how brave, childishly brave at time, he can be: but of course, what he can achieve depends on progress on building up his skills, that is yours.
This young man is the last in a line of discrete heroes fighting against the evil God King who runs the land, Drem’s Maw. His is the lineage of Sacrifice, soft voiced humans who for ever fight against the armies of the God King, his Titans, all inhuman things at his service. Siris is the Sacrifice, sent to die for his people, who themselves are reduced to slavery. “The Sacrifice didn’t need to win. He wasn’t expected to win. He wasn’t supposed to be able to win”.
What sort of hero is that? Well, he does take the sword, the magic Infinity Blade, and comes back to his town. I like several things, for example: “His mother and he were among the few in the town who could read. The Sacrifice had to be literate.” Although Siris does not know why it should be so, “he had not considered it an arduous requirement; reading and writing had come easily to him”.
The swordplay is magnificent – though I am not sure what it will do in the end to the shiny screen of my beloved iPad! If you want to join me it’s easy. Multiplaying is via your Facebook account. Have a go. It’s great fun to be a literate Titan slayer.
Julian paused, on the threshold of recognition. Then, as he sat still, his mind suddenly saw her, the girl at the school gate, waiting for him, tall and smiling. A wave of memories submerged him: the old town, the medieval streets, the library where he worked and studied, the provincial railway station, the ugly buildings from the post war period, the school, the calm waters of the canal, and Melissa: his forgotten friend, his adolescence sweetheart. What happened to her? And why all that secrecy? Why could not she just approach him, write to him, say who she was? Reading his mind Sarah said: “Maybe she has a grudge?”
