Congratulations to Vauxhall Vixen Elyssa Papa for finalling in the NWIndiana RWA’s Grand Beginnings Contest with Take a Chance on Me! I see chocolate and a handsome Brit in her future and ours.

Ely, I salute you!

    Ohhh, Maggie!!!! Thanks so much! I’m going to have to pay you in kind… maybe I’ll add some White Shoulders to your gift, too. LOL.

    Thanks! It’s been a very interesting week (started off really crappy and ended really awesome). Still can’t believe I finalled and have been in a state of disbelief and happy dancingness ever since I opened up the e-mail.

    I had no idea and almost missed the party. Whoohoo!!! That’s wonderful news. And you’ve worked so hard, you totally deserve this, Ely.

    Congrats and here’s to many more celebrations to come. I just know we’ll be celebrating “the call” very soon!

    Terrio, it’s never too late to party! I know Ely’s thrilled and will be so happy you all stopped by to wish her well. She had a really great week last week, with honorable mention on an entry she submitted in the BookEnds First Hundred Words contest and a couple of requests for a full !
