A little gift in the Inbox...

Every morning I wade through my Inbox, deleting all the spam first, until I am left with all the important and interesting emails. This morning, I received an email from Sylvia at

This is what she had to say:

"Fuelmyblog team is awarding you Blog Of The Day! Attached is your award for the occasion to display on your blog if you wish ;-) "

And on the FuelMyBlog website, she writes:

"Today I have come across the blog of Cheryl Kaye Tardif. Cheryl is a well known Canadian writer who has already had several novels published. Her blog is about her books and Cheryl, pay her a visit it is a welcoming and soothing place to be."

That is so very nice of her to say. Thank you, Sylvia! This makes my day.

I write in numerous blogs and the one she is talking about is my Whale Song Blog. Check it out!

I'm a new member at FuelMyBlog. I still haven't figured everything out yet. So many things to do...and I already work at writing and promoting about 16 hours a day. Oh, and for those of you who think a writer's life is easy, it's not. Every day is a challenge. So many decisions to make. What should I blog about? What event should I plan? Do I need to close a contest and award a winner? Should I go to Starbucks and write? Should I do some bookkeeping? (blah!) Should I send out more review copies, do a signing, contact libraries, bookstores, schools, book clubs?

It all has to be done...eventually.

And then there are the rejection letters an author has to wade through. Rejections from agents. Rejections from publishers. It's all part of this life, but it can be tough at times to have people telling you "No, this is not right for us."

But for this moment--right now--I am going to say "Thank You!" to FuelMyBlog. It may be a little thing, winning an award like this, but for me it is a symbol of appreciation and recognition.

Someone is telling me I've done something right. :)
