We found this wonderful award
on the website of Cate
Russell-Cole. She says, "Success never comes solely from your own
efforts. There are always others along the way who give you a hand up;
encourage you; or give you that resource, or piece of advice you never could
have done without. When someone inspires you, or if you see someone who is
using their writing gift to help others, please take the time to thank them
publicly by giving them this award..."
With these sentiments in mind,
we’d like to introduce Rebecca Scarberry, an author many of you already know as
@Scarberryfields on Twitter, and one of the kindest, most supportive people you
will ever have the pleasure of knowing.
What did Becky do to receive
this award? Her acts of writing kindness are too numerous to mention
individually, so we’ll focus on the bigger picture. Becky gives generously of
her time to promote fellow authors, getting the message out about their projects,
and encouraging them past writer’s blocks and other travails. She supports her
peers in other ways, too. She reads their books, posts reviews, and conducts
interviews. She also does guest spots on other authors’ blogs.
She is tireless in her
support of the writing craft and fellow indie authors. For this, and because
she is simply a genuinely warm and caring person, she is appreciated and adored
by many, including us.
