It was pretty darn awesome to wake up to
THIS news on Monday morning!
I don't know how many books were in my category, but I do know that this year's contest was the largest contest Readers' Favorite has ever had and that the first round of judging had to be extended because there were so many books for the judges to read. Regardless of the numbers, that gold seal makes me RIDICULOUSLY happy, as does the fact that I get to put gold stickers on all my print books now (because who doesn't like shiny stickers?!).
I did not celebrate with champagne, but rather with this gigantic box of Lindor that my husband presented to me when he got home (and which is, in my opinion, a whole lot better than champagne!).
