Friday's at the Piedmont Grille

Good Morning gentle readers. Today is just a short post and not all that well put together, but I need to get back into the blog world and I can't just sit around and mope all day.

I recieved a few awards last week and I'd like to share them. I received the A is for Awesome Award from VR Barkowski.
I would like to pass this on to some new buddies of mine.

Terry Towery at A Writer of Wrongs

Bish Denham at Random Thoughts.

Roland Yeomans at Writing in the Crosshairs

Amy at She Writes

Christi at a Torch in the Tempest

So congratulations to everyone.

And hey, did you hear Talli Rowland is going to be published. She signed with a company over in the UK the day before yesterday! So a big round of applause for Talli!!! **applause applause** I can't wait for her book THE HATING GAME to come out.

I'll be posting more awards over the weekend so keep a look out. Have a great Friday!

Congrats on the award Anne, and thanks for the linkage. I know everyone but Amy so I will go follow her blog ... now.

I also know Talli, only for a few short weeks now, but she is awesome, especially her comments (but her blog is pretty darn cool too). That is so wonderful that she is going to be published!

Today's guest blogger is The Alliterative Allomorph!

Awards are fun to receive and give out. Reminds me, I need to give notice to a few of my blogging buddies who have supported me over the months with my Awesomous Maximus Award. Have a great weekend.
