I was so, so tickled to be there for these awards! It was a lot of fun. S.J. Rozan was a fabulous toast master, and the best part? Getting to congratulate Chris, Jon & Ruth, and Sean in person. I think I'm still on Cloud 9!! :) Whatda ya say, Lesa? Wanna "meet me in St. Louis" in 2011? ;)

I'm still so jealous, Jen. Someday I'd love to make Bouchercon. I don't know if next year will be the year or not. Someday, I'll meet you there, Jen!
