How can you forget you won the Grand Prize over at Bye Bye Pie, a prize that should have been mine but wasn't because you played dirty and mentioned Carin in your submission. A prize I was coveting with every ounce of my being? Remember? You won the Inflatable Fruitcake!!THAT is something to be proud because not everyone wins an inflatable fruitcake.So. When do I need to start demanding when your novel will be available at the Borders of the Noble Amazon?
Yes, the Bye Bye Pie prize! Many were jealous, including myself.Oh, I can't wait for when you have your book published and you have an Amazon link on the side of your blog. I'll preorder it!
Congratulations.And go put your head back between your knees.Or your husbands.He will thank me later for that.
Congratulations. The first step on your journey.
congratulations! can't wait for your book...
I THOUGHT that was what was going on! CONGRATULATIONS BIG GIRL (and I mean that in the most loving of ways and I wasn't talking about your triceps or anything else, especially after I polished off a bag of Doritos for lunch, the evil food)! There really ought to be a Joann Genre. Your writing is like no one else's: totally unique, thoughtful, peaceful and funny as all get out. You'll do wonders in the world of words, sweetie, and your book is going to be wonderful, too, just like you!Smiles and Hugs! ; )
YAY!!! I can't wait for a whole section at Barnes & Nobles or Books a Million (or some other big chain) of Joann Genre books! Yours of course being the best! Can't wait till it comes out and I can brag to all my friends, I read her blog before she was published, so we practically go way back!!
Well honestly, I can't say I am surprised at all. This is one contest you were meant to win. I just hope it doesn't mean you are too big to blog anymore.Also, my boobs are just now gaining some elasticity!
YAYYYYYYYYYYYYY!! Congratulations!! That is awesome!
ACK! everywhere I click it's "JoAnn (not YOU) won the caption contest!"Enough already! I know I can't be as cool as you, and maybe I'm a little edgy from babysitting a 2 year old boy this morning, to match the one I already had, added with the 1 year old, and at this point I'm just glad my house hasn't blown up...but I wish I was you right now. You're such a winner! Congratulations!Although, I knew you would win the whole time. No Surprise.
And in the middle of it all I come along and ask you to post on my blog...and you say yes.You're amazing!!!
You are just so funny! You know how happy I am for you!!!I like the Joann Genre, it is catchy!!And the Gone with the Wind reference is priceless.You are amazing and you WILL get published.
That is AMAZING! I have a little throw up in my mouth now just in honor of YOU!
oh yes... and I remember film strips. We had them a LOT!Emily thinks it is used to test the pool water. I just asked her.
I love the idea of the Joann genre!Good luck!!!
The Joann genre? I love it. Good luck!!!!
Congrats! I'm so happy for you! :DAnd FANTASTIC song choice, by the way! If you've never seen Wicked live, you have to. The emotional power of that song can bring tears to the eyes and take the breath away from every person in the audience.
Yay! Looking forward to reading your novel :-)
Congratulations once again Joann - all the very best of luck on the next stage in this journey of yours. Know we are all right here rooting for you!
Yay! You won! I am so happy for you. I am already thinking of the day I'll read your book and say, "Hey! You know what? I read her blog! She's a friend and all.."!!! Yay! Yay yay yay!YayYayYayOkay, let's work on getting there Joann genre!
girl.GIRL!!!awesome news my friend. lauren
Congratulations! That is Very Cool: )
Oh my goodness, Joann, that's awesome! Congratulations - woo hoo! I want to be first in line at the book signing when you hit my neck o' the woods.
Winning feels great, especially when you're used to losing (in my case, anyway :))...Congrats!Melaniewww.tutubugblog.blogspot.com
I'm not even surprised. When you said you won, I thought, "Well, of course you did!" There was never any doubt in my mind. You will be awesome. You will do the work as if you were made for it -- and you are. You will be published. You will do a book signing in Phoenix and I will be in line to meet you, my friend! Bacon scented air freshener sounds like the perfect Father's Day gift! And, P.S., I love chick lit!!!
I see it now...a big sign hanging over the Joann Genre section in B&N. We can say we knew you when :)
Congratulations! That's fantastic news! Your book will be successful because you're too darn funny for it not to be. "birthin queries" I'm still tearing up from laughing over that one!
Congrats!! Well deserved. I keep telling my husband that you are going to be famous and I can say that I knew you way back when... Oh, and I saw the "Why I hate Kate" post linked below and had to check it out. Thanks for the giggles. And if it makes you feel better I gained more than half my body weight with my first.
Congratulations!! That's so fabulous!! You crack me up that you are thinking about your triceps. I think Joann genre is perfect. You can work it, sista!Of all your prizes, I'm kinda sorta jealous of the bacon air freshener. Just sayin'...
Not only do I love the Joann genre, I actually know what it is! I am excited! When the book comes out, I will buy a copy that is not 8 1/2 x 11! Then I can read it again in the pool.
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAH!!!!!!!!!!!You are awesome! No worries lady. You got it all under control.Suzy
I just peed myself out of excitement! YAY!
Joann, Congratulations! Warm thoughts for you and your family.--Al
Congratulations!!! You're on your way!
Well, a BIG congratulations to you! I, myself, am a LOSER. My luck is SO BAD, in fact, that when my husband and I went to the race track and bet on a horse? He DROPPED DEAD (the horse, not my husband) BEFORE the finish line. And that, my friend, pretty much sums up MY LIFE!I, too, am confused with the genre "Chick-lit". Is that all inclusive of novels about women? From the sickeningly cute to the nice, modern day love stories? How IS Jennifer Weiner's writing categorized?
I have to say, I don't think I entered this contest. Mostly because it scared the hell out of me. Win a vintage apron, pans, bowls, or anything else that sadly coincides with here my husband likes to pretend I belong? Absolutely! But the very idea that I could possibly win something to further my career? I believe that may have been the fastest I've ever shut down my computer...mostly because it was the only time I've ever shut down my computer.So KUDOS to you! Not just for winning, but for having the guts to enter in the first place.BTW, Do Kudo bars come with the prize? Because that would be awesome. Especially the chocolate ones...
This is sofa king (as Meleah says) exciting!!!!!!!Yay for the Joann Genre, I'm going to google it now. You go girl!
Congratulations!I don't read much chick lit, but I am totally into the Joann Genre!
Congratulations, Joann! YOU WON!DOn't worry about the arms right now. Just celebrate. and relax. Don't be gettin your Hanky Pankies in a wad now.Joann genre? LOVE IT!xoxoxo
YAY Joann!! I knew you could make it to this stage, and I am holding a steady vision of your imminent publication! It is going to happen, this I know for sure!
You're so gonna kick ass! Can't wait to hear more. You make me want to go back and finish my novel though I'm only on page 10. Ha ha.Keep us posted! CONGRATS and by the way you're hawt, don't let yourself think anything but that, since it's the damn truth!
So happy and proud of you!!!! Yeah! You are following your bliss, baby and the universe is totally supportive!
Congratulations!! Yipee you won!! Like there was any doubt! (-: So very happy for you and might I suggest taking SurferWife's advice not only because it was so damned funny but it will take your mind off all the loose arm stuff (-:
After reading your posts I wanted you to win so much. It is meant to be. Sally Kirkland, an actor once said they tape up her arms when they are filming so they don't jiggle. You could tape yours and then wear a see through sleeve so people can see how fit they are and not see the tape.I'm so happy for you. XD
The Joann genre is so much better than chic lit! I'm so glad you won! I had wondered and hoped!You're on a roll! I mean, seriously, bacon air freshener! The world is your oyster lady! I'm so tickled for you!
Hi Joann-I'm just catching up. I'm so glad you won-Congratulations!!!!
Joann--I am so glad you entered and went for it. I'm so glad you just did it, without thinking all sorts of excuses of not ready, not right, not now, etc.Yay!!!This is meant to be. I was so happy when I saw your name up, you'd a thunk I knew ya or something (wink)Love ya, girlfriend...xoxoxo
