  2. Thanks Heather and congratulation to all of the winner. I didn’t know I was nominated for one and to pick up two awards is mind blowing.

    Peace and Blessing to you and the Disilgold Family!!

  3. Congrats to all the winners for this year. (So many of them I would congrats personally but we’d be here longer than anticipated). Next year, I’m applying for The Hardest Working
    Woman in Literary, but Delores might beat me on that one, LOL.

  4. Thank you Mr. Johnson. 2007 is going to be a great year. I look forward to seeing you soon at the Book Expo and congratulations. Have a blessed New Years.

  5. Thanks for the accolades Heather. Your list actually serves as a nice list of resources a veritable who’s-who’s of the book business.
