WOW!!! Looking forward to the panels this year, utterly SHOCKED I've been nominated for Author of the Year. Don't really feel like I deserve that, but wow, that's just . . .my face hurts right now okay from smiling too hard! 

This was a good week to get such good news!

Thanks Julie for running this every year.

My goodness, I just popped into this thread to check the list and congratulate the nominees, and saw my name there! I did *not* expect that. For some reason it's under General Fiction rather than Historical Fiction, but I'm not complaining :). Thank you, mysterious nominator, and congratulations to all.

I'm shocked to see my book nominated. Not surprised to see my name misspelled. Sigh.

I didn't even bother to open this thread all day because I didn't think it had anything to do with me. Thank you.

Congratulations to everyone! I didn't even know I was on the list until EAW mentioned it on Facebook. I was in my own little world yesterday with a new release and working on the first book in a new series. I zone out when that kind of stuff is going on.

Actually, I don't have anything to do with the selections. Everyone is done by ballot. All we do is validate the ballots and make sure they are accurate.
