I won! I Won! I WON, I WON, I WON….

After a hard day at the day job, I sat bleary-eyed at my computer and clicked on the Send/Receive email button. I watched as my SPAM filter churned away sorting out the garbage from the possibly worthwhile and casually clicked on one with a subject “Early Notification”.

    Congratulations Anne. That award sounds like something to be very proud of. I know from personal experience that the “competitors” are many and the high standards in the childrens writing world make those, often rare, wins ever so sweet. Well done.
