Um...I Won!

I really can't believe it, but that post on Nathan's blog says it, so I'm going with it. Wow! Tough competition; I am really shocked. Thanks to everyone who voted for me and for all the kind words despite my glaring typo (that's what you get when you type something into the comment box...).

Since I'm finishing Sealed today, I guess it's on to the ninjas! Wee!

  3. Kiersten, that is exatly what I said, aloud. "OH MY GOSH!" My kids looked up at me. Amber was like, "What? What?"

    Natalie!! I am so happy for you! You deserve this, not only because yours was the best one there and you are a fantastic writer, but also because you are a wonderful person and good karma demanded that you win!

  8. YOU WON! That is brilliant and so well deserved. Now you get some Nathan time. (Slight weakness in the knees - possibly brought on by current fever - but unlikely)

    YEAY!
