Follow Friday #8

Happy Friday everyone!
Yes, it’s that time of week again where bloggers unite to participate in the Follow Friday venture. The idea behind #FF is to promote traffic to your own blog, make new friends with other like-minded bloggers and discuss new and interesting topics each week.
Participating is simple. First you need to follow my blog because I’m totally awesome, then you can follow me on Twitter @kristyberridge (actually you don’t have to do this, it’s wishful thinking), but do follow my blog or assassins will get you …
Then you must follow our illustrious hosts Rachel of and Alison of If you want more details on how to enter your own blog in the follow and hop, all directions are on their webpages
Now, once you’ve followed, check out my answer to this week’s questions and don’t forget to leave a comment so I can do the right thing and follow you back!

This week's Question: It's Thanksgiving day in the US, so we want to know what you are thankful for - blogging related of course. Who has helped you out along the way? What books are you thankful for reading?

Answer: You know, it surprises me how many wonderful people there are out there that support my writing and of course, my blog. To start with I have to thank Holjo at She was the very first blogger willing to support my book The Hunted, including buying her own copies to review and put in a giveaway!
Plus I have too many Twitter supporters to even mention, so I'll stick with my faves - @bookbrats, @alexia_smit, @livin_thru_arts, @DPhilipose, @Denise_Carter, @JuliaIndigo, @jeffreadwrite, @JudeCMahoney, @kellym2372, @mdot417, @Millsyswife, @WriteTheFantasy and @YABookAddict
In terms of books I'm thankful for - that's easy - all of them! I adore to read, it's probably one of the main reasons I started writing in the first place.


  1. I've yet to dabble with Twitter profoundly. ;)

  8. Books are always the reasons why writers begin to write, I have found. For me, those books were the Harry Potter series, which are ,to this day, the subjects of a literary shrine in my room.
