I Saw Your Blog. Now I'm a Be-Liebster.

And The Liebster Blog Award Goes To...

I received a message from the wonderfully terrifying mind of Steven Chapman. It was covered in blood and still attached to a severed zombie hand. After climbing over my initial resentment like an arachnophobe escaping through cobwebbed cellar walls I took the message and read it.

Turns out it was a nice thing. He's only gone and nominated me for a blogger award called The Liebster Blog Award. It's aim is to showcase amazing bloggers who just happen to have fewer than 200 followers. Hopefully you’ll all visit the blogs I'll suggest and follow them. Because to be honest they are worth visiting on a regular basis like returning to the salad bar at Pizza Hut to fill up on  free food when your mates have eaten all the XL Vegetarian Hot One while you went to the toilet. Also I only ever give recommendations I truly believe in.

And now for the rules bit:

1. Thank the giver and link back to the blogger who gave it to you.
2. Reveal your top 5 picks and let them know by leaving a comment on their blog.
3. Copy and paste the award on your blog.
4. Have faith that your followers will spread the love to other bloggers.
5. And most of all - have bloggity-blog fun!

I'd like to thank my mum and dad, my high school blog teacher, Father Google at Blogger Summer Camp for making me believe in myself, "Thanks father. The little fat kid finally made it whooo!"
I’d also like the thank the Big Man upstairs. That's right Big Bone Barry who lives in the flast above and let's me borrow his Wi-Fi connection.

Mostly though... "Hey can we dim the lights and have a spot over there? Cheers." I'd like to thank Steven Chapman the man who made this all possible. So thanks man. Stephen is a fantastic writer you need to check out. I know before long he'll have to veto people who join his blog because his book will attract many crazy zombies hungry for that twisted brain of his. So stop reading this waffle and jump over to his blog. No wait I have my own nominations so stick around for one more informative minute.

The nominations as chosen by the academy are as follows.."What? Oh yeah." The nominations as chosen by me who has no association with the Oscars but really feel I deserve one because my mum said I did are as follows...

Cyberschizoid Cult Entertainment Horror Blog

Home of Richard Gladman the mad genius behind The Classic Horror Campaign. You only have to take a quick look at Cyberschizoid to appreciate why the man has such passion to return classic horror back to our TV screens. His obvious love for the genre oozes from this brilliant blog. He covers it all from the films we love to the films we've never heard of, to horror magazines, conventions, screenings and anything else worth knowing.

The Queen of the darkness, twister of words and mother of mythology. Lily not only has a great blog that showcases her unique talent, as displayed in her Kindle series 'Magenta Shaman', she also runs a weekly flash fiction competition that attracts some of the darkest writers around the world in one place. Lily's blog is always a first stop for some of the best writers across the planet. 

Jodi describes her writing as, 'Omnivorous fiction favoring fable, suburban punk, pulp, horror, and bizarro.' I say she's one of the most promising voices in fiction right now. Oh and let's not forget those devilish pirates!

There's nothing he doesn't know about your classic, your new and your so bad they are brilliant horror films. His take on the industry and the history of the genre is a revelation. Check him out and boost his following.

Angel Zapata's (of Rage of Angel)  home to the strangely addictive flash format. Five sentences, five words in each and that's your story. Two issues released already and I hear a third on the way soon. So pop over, follow, enjoy and submit. This magazine is staring to attract some very prestigious writers and a cult following to boot.

So once again thanks to Steven for awarding this and for passing it on. I hope you manage to take a look at all the blogs and follow them all too. And remember being eaten by zombies, bitten by vamps, scared to death by ghosts and ridden by a hairy werewolf is very rare, so please, don't have nightmares.
