In late October, out of the blue, I received a message from a lovely woman at QueryLetter.com. Lana had this to say:
We spend a lot of time reading top writing blogs, and I’m pleased to inform you that we’ve selected A Writer of History for a Top Writing Blog award …. Congratulations on building one of the best writing blogs available today and for helping writers improve their craft.
Imagine my delight and surprise! The blog has previously won awards from Writers Digest on two separate occasions, so I/we must be doing something right 🙂
QueryLetter.com offers services such as query letter writing support, agent contact info, manuscript critiques, and self-publishing support. They also offer a blog with lots of writing tips. I’m grateful that they selected A Writer of History for one of this year’s awards.
But .. I couldn’t have created this blog, let alone sustained it for nine years, without your readership and encouragement, and without the help of so many authors, bloggers, and readers who have contributed posts along the way.
So this award is also for you!
