Feature & Follow Friday (17)

Feature & Follow Friday is a weekly meme created by Parajunkee and co-hosted by Alison Can Read where bloggers hop around meeting and following other bloggers.


To join the fun and make new book blogger friends, just follow these simple rules:

  • (Required) Follow Parajunkee.com  & Alison Can Read (our hosts).
  • (Required) Follow our Featured Bloggers - Mother Lode & The Book Nympho.
  • Put your Blog name & URL in the Linky thing. 
  • Grab the button up there and place it in a post, this post is for people to find a place to say hi in your comments
  • Follow Follow Follow as many as you can, as many as you want, or just follow a few. The whole point is to make new friends and find new blogs. Also, don't just follow, comment and say hi. Another blogger might not know you are a new follower if you don't say "HI"
  • If someone comments and says they are following you, be a dear and follow back. Spread the Love...and the followers
  • If you're new to the follow friday hop, comment and let me know, so I can stop by and check out your blog!



  • Q: In light of 11.11.11 and Veteran’s Day tell us about your favorite soldier and how he or she is 
    saving the world. Fictional or real life.


    I don't know any soldier personally and don't really have any fictional favorite soldier either so my answer would be: none.
    Still, I believe, all of them, it doesn't matter from which country, are special and brave, very brave. If I could I would take a bow and give a hug to each soldier in the whole world because I believe they don't get the recognition they should and I honestly think they are amazing for putting their lives at risk to protect the lives of people they love and people they don't even know.

    Besides this, don't forget to enter in my Almost There Giveaway to win $20 from The Book Depository and my Veteran's Day Giveaway to win an amazing ebook. Good luck to everybody and happy weekend!

    3. I couldn't think of any fictional soldiers either, although I did take a guess. Don't know any real ones either!

    9. Some people have friends and/or family who served or who is serving in the military. Other people aren’t really keen on the long-standing war and really have no answer at all.

      As for me? I don’t know anyone who is serving or who has served so I decided to go with what I want and chose a fictional soldier as an answer. The thing is, I had four prime candidates! I did eventually end up with one with a lengthy explanation. Care to know who it is? Follow me back to http://www.howardsherman.net and find out!

      In celebration of today’s cool date of 11/11/11 I’m offering a special $11 discount off all my interactive fiction books! Sure I’m a book blogger but I’m also an author. All the details of the $11 off on 11/11/11 is at the bottom of my Follow Friday blog post.

      Since I’m posting this kind of late just add 'FF’ to the coupon code and it’ll be valid all weekend long!

      Thank God it’s Follow Friday!
