Dragon's Loyalty Award

Yesterday I was very grateful to receive a Dragon's Loyalty Award for my blog by Mr Rumsey, a film blogger whose reviews of everything from Adaptation to Zombieland I highly recommend. Thank you, sir!
Now I have to do my bit and follow the rules that come with the award.

  • Display the Award Certificate on your website
  • Announce your win with a post and link to whoever presented your award
  • Present 15 awards to deserving bloggers
  • Drop them a comment to tip them off after you've linked them in a post
  • Post 7 interesting things about yourself

Firstly, I decided to bend the rules a little (some would say outright break, I wouldn't) by reducing the number of rewards from 15 to 5. Here, after much deliberation, are five blogs which I think really deserve this award for the work which has been put into maintaining these great sites:

Each has a range of interests and content but I urge you to have a look at them all. They're all well worth it.

And to complete the post, here's seven 'interesting' facts about me:

  1.  I've wanted to be a writer for as long as I can remember. I had a brief spell where I became obsessed with football in my youth but generally this aim has stayed put.
  2. I've met Two ‘Doctor Whos’ in my life. David Tennant last December and Tom Baker in a Waterstones’ book shop when I was five. I don’t actually remember this although it did definitely happen. I aim to tick off a few more over the years…
  3. I own far too many books to do with Sherlock Holmes. I shouldn't admit to this but I have three copies of The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes. Don’t ask.
  4. I love writing lists of things but I can never ever choose what my favourite film would be. Maybe one day.
  5. The first Doctor Who story I wrote when I was twelve was called ‘The Devil’s Children’ – still a good title – and involved a giant demonic alien possessing children and using them to take over the world! I do believe it’s still pugged away somewhere…
  6. Now, don’t go mad, internet, but I haven’t seen every Star Wars film. And the ones I have I've only seen once. Please hold back on flinging the rotten tomatoes.
  7. Whilst writing out this blog post I am watching an episode of the Simpsons. It is a good episode of the Simpsons. Thanks for reading! 


  1. Thanks for the kind words. I'm holding back those tomatoes!

  2. Well Done :)
    We still need to rectify the Star Wars situation!

  3. Thanks for the comments, guys! No problem, Mr Rumsey and, BookWormGirl, we probably do, yeah. :)
