Just thinking…

The Versatile Blogger

Okay, so before I tell you about another cool award that I’ve won, let me first say that today I’ve been invited to hang out at Delaney Diamonds blog today http://delaneydiamond.com/2012/05/14/special-guest-sharon-cooper/. This is REALLY cool, because I’m such a fan of hers – and she’s interviewing me! Stop by and check me out. Oh, AND make sure you leave a comment when you stop by for a chance to win a prize. First prize – $10 Amazon.com gift card and an e-copy of Something New, and second prize – an e-copy of Something New.  Double your chances by leaving a comment on my blog, as well as Delaney’s blog TODAY.

Okay, now for my award! A few days ago, Ms. Jordanna East over at http://journeyofjordannaeast.wordpress.com/ nominated me for the Versatile Blogger Award (Yay!). I never thought of myself as a versatile blogger – but I’m thrilled that I’m seen as one! As part of the nomination, I have to share seven facts about myself and nominate fifteen other bloggers. Now mind you, I’m still fairly new at this blogging stuff, so I don’t know if I can come up with fifteen blogs that I’m familiar with and enjoy – but of course I’ll try. But first, a few facts about me:

Fact 1: I was third runner-up in the Ms. Patricia Stevens pageant – like a hundred years ago!

Fact 2: I was a sheet metal worker for ten years, which is definitely going to play into my new book series coming out in 2013 – Jenkins Family Series (Note: my short story, Best Woman for the Job is a prequel to this series).

Fact 3: My all time favorite store is the Container Store (I hear angels whenever I walk through the doors).

Fact 4: I’ve been married for almost ten years to the most amazing man.

Fact 5: My second novel, Blue Roses, is scheduled for release at the end of June (yay!). Stay tuned for more details in the near future.

Fact 6: I’m still looking forward to being in an anthology (romance) with two of my favorite authors – Beverly Jenkins and Brenda Jackson. I picture my story being dead-smack in the middle of theirs.

Fact 7: I dream of being a secondary character in one of Delaney Diamond’s romance novels. I picture myself as a starving romance writer who moonlights at a five-star hotel as a maid. And to take it a little farther, I see myself being called to the main character’s room (one of Delaney’s gorgeous alpha male characters), and being asked to have dinner with him since he hates eating alone. …it could happen. And since I’m happily married, I’d introduce him to my cool (single) sister.

Okay, so my nominees for the Versatile Blogger award are (in no particular order):

Claire Fadden http://claireflaire.wordpress.com/

Candace Shaw http://candaceshaw.net/

Delaney Diamond http://delaneydiamond.com/

Jamila Gomez http://www.jamilagomez.com/

  6. Hey Sharon!
    Just followed you over from Delaney’s blog. Those are some interesting facts about you. As for No.7 (which is my last name in another language..lol), I get the honor of being one of the secondary characters in Delaney’s books “Here Comes Trouble”!! I am soooo excited & dont even care what part I will be playing!

    Comment by Rahab M | May 14, 2012

    • Oh my goodness, Rahab, that is AWESOME!!!!! What did you have to do to get Delaney to let you be a secondary character in one of her upcoming novels??? Twist her arm? Promise to name your first born after her? Inquiring minds want to know!

      BTW, great job in doubling your chances of winning one of the prizes today!

  10. I loved reading the facts. I imagine such diversity must play into the writing.

    Comment by Mary Preston | May 14, 2012

    • Hi Mary, thanks for stopping by! I definitely try to keep my blog as well as my stories diverse. My characters are everything from entrepreneurs to ex-special ops. Since I like reading diverse stories (mainly contemporary romance & romantic suspense), I like for my stories to have some of the same elements.

      Thanks again for visiting!

      Comment by sharonccooper | May 15, 2012

  11. Wow, Sharon. How exciting that Blue Roses is scheduled to come out so soon! I can totally see you as a pageant girl, but you were a sheet metal worker? How cool is that? I can’t wait to check out your new series!

    Comment by twtrifles | May 15, 2012

    • Hey Trish! Always great hearing from you. Yes, this is a busy writing/publishing year for me, so I have to keep everything moving! Lol.
