The purpose of the Liebster Blog Award is to recognise blogs with fewer than 200 followers that deserve a look. My job is to:

(a) List 11 random facts about me;

(b) Answer 11 questions Terry has set me;

(c) Set 11 questions to ask other authors;

(d) Tag 11 authors who should bask in the Liebster glow.

To my nominated author friends – it means doing the same as I am doing here! ie. Post a blog linking back here, with 11 random facts about you, answer my 11 questions and nominate 11 new bloggers to answer 11 new questions you have set them – they can be about anything! If you want to do it but the thought of finding 11 other bloggers to tag and thinking up questions puts you off, just write 11 random facts about yourself, and answer my questions! 🙂
