*jumps up and down with excitement*

So Amazon sent out email offers yesterday to Vine members asking to participate in the 2011 ABNA contest (Breakthrough novel award) and to email back if interested. Read and review 40 excerpts sent to you and receive a $350 Ammy certificate.

Just. Got. The Confirmation. Email. I'm. In.

 

YIPPEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!

That said, I did participate in reviewing the early entries in the first year's contest. It is painful at times, so I'll have to work for my money.

Good for you, Cathy.  At least we know there will be honest evaluations!

Thanks ladies. I didn't realize what damage a large GC might do to my biggest loser status. Perhaps Valli and Genie had a hand in this?

Congratulations, Cathy! (snickers behind hand)

No, really, that's great. I always look for your reviews at Amazon. Thanks for helping to keep the community honest.

Wow! I'm impressed!  Many congratulations.  How many books can you buy with that GC?  devil

Just read the good news.

My first thought -- that's awesome!! smiley

My second thought -- guess Cathy is out of contention for the biggest loser award. wink

Oh, so true -- I momentarily forgot.  If I were you, I'd go for the Badonkadonk. But you should order now -- there's only one available.
