Congratulations! Wonderful news!

I am so happy for you. I couldn't be more happy for you if you had done all that without all of your powerful poet friends helping you out. LOL

Seriously, great job.

I've been reading Java Monkey Speaks, and it is pretty terrific.
did ur agent call and wake you at 530am to give you the news? who will you wear for the red carpet? in your speech will you say "i give you the queen!"
PS:

You've probably done this a thousand times before nevertheless, I tagged you! Come play if you feel like it!

Justin...My minions were hard at work securing those nominations. They'll be thanked later with publication, money under the table and oral gratification. ;-)

Peter...Glad you're enjoying the anthology. We're quite proud of it.

MM...I am the queen.

PWADJ...I'll get right on it.
