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!
This is great news. Wee indeed.ReplyDelete
OMIGOSH! OMIGOSH! OMIGOSH! Repeated indefinitely!ReplyDelete

Or Lady Glamis, as I usually go by online. :)
Kiersten, that is exatly what I said, aloud. "OH MY GOSH!" My kids looked up at me. Amber was like, "What? What?"ReplyDelete
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!
Thanks guys! And Michelle, I loved yours too. I so thought it was going to win. Seemed like the voting was really close in general.ReplyDelete
See! I said you were in the lead. Congrats!ReplyDelete
CONGRATS!!!! I so loved your paragraph. My daughter and I are now dying for the book to come out, so you better get writing! :) What's Sealed all about? I guess if I look at your blog maybe it will tell me. I think I'll visit for a while.ReplyDelete
So nice to know about you!
Thanks, Lotus! Always great to hear that:) I will definitely get writing!ReplyDelete
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)ReplyDelete
Thanks, Natalie. I was a dork and counted the votes. Mine came in third. Steve's 2nd. That includes anonymous votes. :)ReplyDelete
I hope Nathan takes on your book! How exciting!
Ha, I couldn't bear to count, but that's only because I was caught up in finishing my current WIP.ReplyDelete
WOOHOO!!! I've got goosebumps for you! That is so exciting, and well deserved might I add. I really can't wait to hear what Nathan has to say.ReplyDelete
A big congrats to you! I voted for your paragraph too--it was the most interesting for me :)ReplyDelete
