The first is the Premio Dardas Award and this one came from two of our blog friends. One is from Hooked on Romance http://hookedonromance.blogspot.com/ and the other is from Nikki Duncan at http://nikkiduncan.com/blog/.
This award acknowledges the values that every blogger shows in his/her effort to transmit cultural, ethical, literary and personal values every day.
The rules to follow are:
1) Accept the award, then post it on your blog together with the name of the person that has granted the award and his or her blog link.
2) Pass the award to another 15 blogs that are worthy of this acknowledgment. Remember to contact each of them to let them know they have been chosen for this award.
With that in mind, we are tagging the following blogs;

We send out a huge thank you to our friends who nominated us.
I have to admit it was very hard to choose this limited number blogs. We had so many different friends we could have nominated. If yours was not chosen, that does NOT mean we don’t love it. It just means we tried to pick a few different favorites amongst our authors.
I will be contacting all the nominated blogs as soon as I can. In the meantime, definitely check them out and let them know what you think.
Have a great week.
