I've Been Awarded!

Joanna of The Squirrel's Diary nominated me for the Liebster Award!  Thank you very much, m'dear! 
Here are her questions:
1. Favorite book of the Bible?
Hmmm...I think that would have to be Psalms.  It has a verse for everything.
2. Favorite part of Christmas?

Well, aside from the fact that it's a celebration of Jesus' birth, I really love the present-opening we do on Christmas Eve/Christmas morning.  It's such delightful anticipation. :D  I also like Christmas carols, and being able to look out at my neighborhood all night and seeing it all glittery with Christmas lights.
3. Milk or dark chocolate?

Milk chocolate, probably.  Dark chocolate can sometimes be a bit much, but milk chocolate is just right. (I also like white chocolate.  Sorry.)
4. Least favorite movie and why?

Haha...all of a sudden I can't think of a single movie that I really don't like.  Even the movies that made a hash out of the books (Eragon, for example) are still good in themselves...OH.  
Pride and Prejudice (2005).  It wasn't very accurate to the book, and I didn't think it was a good movie, either. Sorry, all you P&P05 fans. :)
5. Favorite actor/actress?

Tom Hiddleston for actor, maybe?  And...I don't know about actress.  I don't really "do" actors as much as I do characters. ;)
6. Ketchup or mustard?

Mustard.  Indubitably.
7. Ever been outside the US?

Sadly, nope.  It's on my bucket list, though! ;)
8. Dogs or cats?

Ehmmm...cats, I think.  I'm actually allergic to cats, but I still like them; they're so unpredictable. :D
9. Least favorite food?

Coleslaw.  *shudders
10. Favorite beauty product?

Well, I don't really use beauty products--I don't wear makeup or do much with my hair--, so...I'm going to have to pass on this one.

And I can't think of very anybody who hasn't been nominated yet, so...if you're wearing purple of any kind, consider yourself tagged. ;)

Cover Reveal!

My lovely blogging friend Eowyn is publishing a Novel in December, and I am extremely happy to announce that I am participating in the cover reveal!  Here it is...

What would you do if you were given the opportunity to rebuild a broken relationship? 
Alec and Nikki Scott are the perfect ice dancing duo, executing flawless technique and brilliant performance abilities each time they compete. No one doubts their camaraderie, not even their closest friends.
But looks can be deceiving. Off the ice, their relationship is in shambles. Ice dancing is the only thing they have in common anymore... and Alec wants to quit.
Just as Nikki feels like their relationship can't get any worse, an unexpected tragedy crashes into her life. She's left struggling with a difficult choice as her opinion of her brother slowly starts to change.
Whatever she decides, she knows her life will never be the same.

Doesn't it sound AMAZING, everyone??  I was privileged to read the first few chapters awhile ago and got completely hooked.  This girl has been working on Becoming Nikki for a long time and every time I hear more about it, my anticipation grows.  I'm so excited to read the whole thing!
