Sheila, you are awesome. Thanks so much for your hard work, level head, zillion-and-six great ideas and business savvy.

I hope you're savoring this moment. You earned it!

OMG, now I'm embarrassed! Thanks to you and Kelly for being the driving force behind this amazing juggernaut. I can't believe that in such a short time from that first comment on Kelly's blog, the whole thing was up and running, and went amazingly well for the first year for something so big.

I'm also grateful to the members of the nominating and judging committees - all of the committees, but especially those on the fantasy and science fiction committees, because I worked most closely with them. They're an amazing bunch of people who put in a lot of time, sweat, and thought into selecting the winners. I'm honored to have had a chance to get to know all of you better.

OK, there's probably a rule against using amazing three times in the same comment, but I couldn't help it. It's how I feel.

What was I doing here ? Well waiting for the darned Cybils site to LOAD on my painfully-slow-dial-up connection !

Woo Hoo to Jonathan - I'm so pleased for him - and Bartimeaus!
