Terry, I'm excited, too. Next year, we'll have even more nominations because we'll have even more books out. Of course only books, etc. published in 2010 will be eligible then.

Hi Vivian! I was inspired to start a blog after reading your recent Newsletter on Writing.com. I'm finding my blog-feet -- it's a new adventure for me. Just clicking through the lists other people's favorite blogs led me to yours! You've done a great job with your easy-to-read and eye-cathcing site, and I look forward to reading more of the wealth of industry information you post here. Happy New Year!

Vivian Zabel said...

I'm glad my newsletter encouraged you to start a blog. Let me know when you have it up and running.

Happy New Year.

Viv
