Until tomorrow...

I am not quite thinking straight yet. Yesterday the planet tilted a little bit and I haven't adjusted to the new angle. What I know:

-Last night someone read my name when they were announcing the winner of the Amazon  
 Breakthrough Novel Award 2012.

-I owe this success to the kindness of countless people.

-I am endlessly indebted and overwhelmed with gratitude.

-I am so proud of every finalist I met.

-you are waiting for details and pictures.

-I am a little too inebriated from shock to drive this keyboard yet.

-I will be home tomorrow and will tell you everything. (that is a promise!)

-I have the greatest friends and supporters on Earth

Thank you for being a part of this journey and this dream.
