They Like Me!

They really like me!

Late last night I got word that NOT QUITE DEAD had been shortlisted for the Reviewers International Organization (RIO) Award of Excellence in the Debut Book category!


I'm in some pretty exalted company and I feel like a country rube starin' at all them city folk in thar purty clothes.

In fact, for a complete list of the Glamourous Ones, see the RIO blog.

I got this nifty banner from them, but Blogger's being a pain and won't let me post it. But who cares?

WOOOOO HOOOOOOOO!!! And to think you once stayed in my flat!! I think I will get a blue plaque for the front door... "Sela Carsen Stayed Here"

Well done you!

To me,you are more exalted than any other on that list. You are one of the three authors I have read up there and well, cause we rub elbows. :) Congrats, it's well deserved and don't you doubt it for a minute.

Thanks y'all!

Biddy, I was going to say something along the lines of, "Then you'd have lots of plaques up with different names." But that started sounding kinda uncomplimentary! ;)

One hesitates to get too big a head over these things. Especially since they don't announce the winners until the end of the month. Pricking the hubris balloon is both messy and painful. *gg*

By Blogger Sela Carsen, at 2:23 PM  

That's so wonderful. You're really SIZZLING!!!

By Blogger Rhonda Stapleton, at 3:23 PM  

I've said it at Divas, and I'll say it here: CONGRATS!

I'd be doing a full swing happy dance! :)

I also have a contractor on speed dial, should you need your doorways widened...

By Blogger Dayna_Hart, at 4:12 PM  

Oh yes! This is very, very good.

Congratulations. If I could work out how to post balloons here, I would!

By Blogger Ansley Vaughan, at 5:39 PM  

Congrats, Sela! I was super happy for you :D

By Blogger Shelli Stevens, at 6:39 PM  

I've already done the happy dance for you but I could do it again if you'd like! LOL Too bad blogger doesn't have emoticons... Congratulations!!

By Anonymous Michelle (MG), at 7:50 PM  

Woohoo...major congrats!

I love the look of your blog btw...very pretty.

By Blogger Shonna Brannon, at 9:10 PM  

Congrats. Not suprising since it's such an original idea for a story. The blurb grabbed me right away :)

By Anonymous Margo Lukas, at 9:51 PM  

Sela, awesome news!! You go!

By Anonymous Michelle Willingham, at 10:01 PM  

Sela - was thinking the smae thing myself... maybe I just need "The Very Talented Brit Pack stayed here!" and then have a list ;-)

I am still wiggling in excitement for you :-)

By Blogger Biddy, at 6:56 AM  

Squeeee!! Every time someone says Congratulations, I start grinning again! In fact, I come back and reread the comments every once in a while purely for grinning purposes!


By Blogger Sela Carsen, at 9:11 AM  

Keep grinning, Sela!! Congratulations on your wonderful news!
