Blog Awards

Thanks to the wonderful people who visit my blog and have voted for it, I have been awarded the following awards:

My author buddy, Charles E. Yallowitz, has nominated me for the Sunshine Blogger Award.

The always kind Suzanne Joshi of Musings on Life and Experience has nominated me for the Champion’s Award.

Susan of Susan’s Personal Blog very kindly nominated me for the delightfully cute Seal Of Approval Blogger Recognition Award.

I was first nominated for the One Lovely Blog Award by Shannon A. Thompson, then by Tim Hemlin, followed by the wonderful Kyrosmagica, Matt and his cats, Toni Pikes, Viv Drewa and Making of an Author. This is the first time anyone from the feline family has nominated me, so it’s particularly flattering. Lastly, I was nominated by Late to the Theater – my go-to place for all things TV/movie – and the amazing Viv Drewa, aka Owl Lady.

The very talented Robin Gott nominated me for the Liebster award, followed by the talented Lauren Jeffrey. I actually went the extra mile for Lauren, as she had a particularly fun selection of questions. You can read my answers here. Simon Farnell also nominated me, which was really nice of him.

The lovely Marlena Hand first nominated me for the Very Inspiring Blogger, followed by Sally Sue Ember, Dale Furse, Carly Compass, JJ Spina, The Planetary Defense Command, Crime Writer Sue Coletta, The Owl Lady (aka Viv Drewa) and the wonderful C. E. Robinson, who was particularly inspired by my awards page.

C. E. Robinson has also kindly nominated me for the Premio Dardos award, the Encouraging Thunder Award and the Tour through Blogland. You can read my creative process here.

The very, well, kind not to mention talented) Erika Kind has nominated me for the Creative Blogger Award, the Brotherhood Of The World Award, the Premio Dardos award and the Starlight Blogger Award. The rules for the latter are pretty simple: Include the logo of the award in a post or on your blog (please never alter the logo). Please don’t delete this note: the design for the STARLIGHT Bloggers Award has been created from YesterdayAfter. It is a Copyright image you cannot alter or change it in any way; just pass it to others that deserve this award. Copyright 2015 © YesterdayAfter.com – Design by Carolina Russo.

Speaking of the Creative Blogger Award, Plain Jane of Family Rules also nominated me, as part of the 10 Things You Didn’t Know About Me challenge.

Last, but by no means least, Tina of Diotima’s Ladder nominated me for the Versatile Blogger Award, followed by Amanda Clemmer of Finish that Novel, Smorgasbord, the Planetary Defense Command, Erika Kind, CuppaJoeAndThou and Melissa of Today, You Will Write (formerly, They Walk By Night).

I believe I have to share a few things about myself now, and nominate some of the many wonderful people whom I follow.

Random facts about me

  1. We have three pets. Basta got his name because he’s as stubborn as they get. Perro, because he’s always following me around and licking my fingers. I think everyone will agree this suggests a serious personality disorder. Which is why his nickname is “silly cat.” And Meli (Greek for honey) got her name because of her sweet nature. No, we didn’t consider calling her, “Gato.”
  2. I started this blog to promote my books. Soon, I realized that blogging was fun even when not mentioning my books, so I changed its focus into sharing my experiences from this crazy journey that writing has been. My new emphasis has been on being fun, being helpful and being real. People have responded to this in an unexpectedly kind way, as witnessed by my awards, and blogging has turned into a passion of its own.
  3. I met my wife, Electra, at a vet. Which is appropriate, as we both love our four-legged family.From the blog of Nicholas C. Rossis, author of science fiction, the Pearseus epic fantasy series and children's books
  4. I love photography and had an exhibition at the Elephant House in Edinburgh once. Thankfully, my father-in-law bought all photographs, thus ensuring its success (I love this guy).From the blog of Nicholas C. Rossis, author of science fiction, the Pearseus epic fantasy series and children's books
  5. I photograph dead people. Accidentally. Or at least it would appear so. This picture was taken as I was snapping shots at a client’s Bed and Breakfast, in Edinburgh. What came out surprised me. I later found out they’re called floaters, apparently. I should probably not have been so surprised: Scots do take their ghosties pretty seriously.From the blog of Nicholas C. Rossis, author of science fiction, the Pearseus epic fantasy series and children's books
  6. I wore a kilt for the first (and last) time at my PhD graduation in Edinburgh. To my relief, turns out that Scots do wear underwear underneath.graduation-kilt
  7. Both Electra and I are masters of disguise, as this selfie clearly demonstrates. Clearly, we are criminal masterminds, and no one but our own mothers could possibly recognize us.
  8. From the blog of Nicholas C. Rossis, author of science fiction, the Pearseus epic fantasy series and children's booksContrary to popular belief, it does snow in Greece. In fact, there’s a number of ski resorts in the country. This photo, however, was taken outside our home.From the blog of Nicholas C. Rossis, author of science fiction, the Pearseus epic fantasy series and children's books
