Blogger of the Year – 2012


Recently, I had the good fortune to ‘meet’ and get to know Seumas Gallacher. Under the ever-vigilant eye of the syringe wielding Matron, he produces a constantly entertaining blog. His daily musings demonstrate an amazing thought process that can only be induced by lunacy in combination with the mysterious fluids found in that syringe.

The Glaswegian, now living and working in Abu Dhabi recently published “The Violin Maker”, the first of a series and now his book-peddler’s pack contains his newest novel, “Vengeance Wears Black”. He has at least three others in the planning stages that will feature the same characters.

Quickly now, get yourself over to for your dose of his idea flows. But, first hop over to Skelat and vote for him as Blogger of the Year! You’ll feel so good about yourself and it’ll bring a ray of sunshine into the asylum!










“‘Twas Himself who created the Blog Scratchers Corner (#TBSU), and in that spirit I offer you a few blogs to follow. Check them out, follow the ones you enjoy, and pass them along!


About Ol' Big Jim

Ol' Big Jim, has been a storekeeper, an embalmer, a hospital orderly, a medical biller, and through it all, a teller of tall tales. Many of his stories, like his first book, New Yesterdays, are set in his hometown of Piedmont, Alabama. For seven years, he lived in the oldest continuously inhabited city in the world, Amman, Jordan where he spends his time trying to visit each one of the thousands of Ammani coffee shops and scribbling in his ever-present notebook. These days, you can find him back stateside, still filling notebooks.

    Hi Jim! I’ve been enjoying your blog today. Wishing you a Happy New Year, much success and happiness in 2013!

    As you may know, my new YA Crossover fantasy/thriller, THE EARTH SHIFTER, is coming out tomorrow, 12/31/12. It’s very international and contains elements of history (which you may like).
    I was wondering whether you’d be interested in becoming one of THE EARTH SHIFTER’s first reviewers? I’d be honored… I am presently looking for speedy reviews to complement the release.
    This is the latest post with details/synopsis/characters/setting, as well as exceprts galore for your information:
    If you are interested, please email me @ jade.snow at yahoo and I’ll send you a free Smashwords coupon, which allows downloads in any format of your choice. (I’ll also duplicate this message via email.)
    By the way, I’ll also have a mega-giveaway with some very valuable prizes, which you may like, at

    Cheers and all the best!

    Lada Ray 🙂
