As many of you may know, our beloved sister hostess SHARON DONOVAN, tragically passed away on 11th April 2012. We who knew her, loved her, and were inspired by her courage and determination to face head on whatever life threw at her. When she could no longer see to paint she turned to writing and showed her amazing talent in the Inspirational Romance and Romantic Suspense genres, and her story 'Charade Of Hearts' was awarded the coveted Predators and Editors Award in January 2011.

This Blog was a source of great delight to her, she was one of the founder hostesses and she contributed to the fun and silliness in her own original way, and was kind enough to let her unique creation, the hunky butler 'Oliver' join us for our Friday romp and prepare 'virtual breakfast' for the guests on the following morning. It's beyond hard to have to go on without her, but we know that she would have been the first to insist that 'the show must go on.' She is, and will always be with us in spirit.
Sharon, dear friend, we will never forget you.
The Author Roast and Toast is part of the legacy you left us. Let's raise a Toast to you as well as all our guests.

Blog of The Year Award 2012

Hi everyone. We're back this week with Beth Trissell coming up on Friday. We've started the New Year off with a *bang* in  the nicest possible way, with a 'Blog of The Year' award, from our wonderful sister hostess MAC CROWNE

In accordance with the rules, we have to nominate other blogs for this award and this is VERY hard.

However, these are the names chosen out of Oliver's Sunday best hat:

SKY PURINGTON
A wonderful paranormal author, who has not only been a Guest Of Honour at the Roast several times, and is a great supporter, but is also wonderfully generous in her support of other authors. She hosts blog hops and guest spots on a regular basis, offering great prizes, on her blog 'A Writer's Mind'.

PAULA MARTIN

A UK author who again has guested on this blog and is a great supporter and commenter. Her 'Pot-pourri' blog is well named, a great mix of a variety of fascinating posts.

CALISA RHOSE

Again a frequent supporter and commenter and recently a Guest of Honour at the Roast. She again is a great supporter of other authors, as well as being a wonderful editor, and her blog 'Pen Of The Dreamer' which goes up on Tuesdays, showcases a different author every week.

Of course we also have to award another star to our inspiring sister hostess MAC CROWNE for her courage and generosity in promoting other authors and in particular for raising awareness of breast cancer and how to spot the early symptoms.

There are so many wonderful bloggers out there who comment and have been guests of honour at our Author Roast parties and are all worthy of the honour, and  it's been almost impossible to choose just a few, so we hope everyone else will understand and not be upset that they weren't chosen - if we could nominate you all, we would, but that would take several days and we have to prepare the party for our next guest, Beth Trissel for this coming Friday  11th January.



For the nominees, here are the details of the award. 


The ‘rules’ for the award are simple:
1 Select the blog(s) you think deserve the ‘Blog of the Year 2012’ Award
2 Write a blog post and tell us about the blog(s) you have chosen – there’s no minimum or maximum number of blogs required – and ‘present’ them with their award.
Please include a link back to this page ‘Blog of the Year 2012’ Award –http://thethoughtpalette.co.uk/our-awards/blog-of-the-year-2012-award/ and include these ‘rules’ in your post (please don’t alter the rules or the badges!)
4 Let the blog(s) you have chosen know that you have given them this award and share the ‘rules’ with them
5 You can now also join our Facebook page – click the link here ‘Blog of the Year 2012’ Award Facebook pagehttps://www.facebook.com/groups/BlogoftheYear/ and then you can share your blog with an even wider audience
6 As a winner of the award – please add a link back to the blog that presented you with the award – and then proudly display the award on your blog and sidebar … and start collecting stars…

There are a total of “6” stars to collect. Which means that you can checks out your favorite blogs—and even if they have already been given the award by someone else—you can still make your opinion count and pass it on to them again and help them (or me) reach the maximum of “6” stars.

Unlike other awards which you can only add to your blog once – this award is different!
You begin with the ‘1 star’ award – and every time you are given the award by another blog – you can add another star!
There are a total of 6 stars to collect.
Which means that you can check out your favourite blogs – and even if they have already been given the award by someone else – you can still bestow it on them again and help them to reach the maximum 6 stars!
