Golden Apple

Happy Friday! You and me made it another week. Whew. Yeah baby! Don't be tardy for the party. Ooooo Ooooo. About 6 of you will get that. The rest will think I'm cra-a-zy. Please excuse me. How dreadful. LOL.

Well, I am happy it's Friday as you can tell. Last night I had a very un-dreadful night slipping out of Freshchester, as my dear friend calls it, and heading down to the city to celebrate some very fine people in the romance writing industry at my local RWA/NYC chapter's Golden Apple Awards.

The honorees were:
Lifetime Achievement: Kathleen E. Woodiwiss

Author of the Year: Patt Mihailoff-
Go Patt!!

Editor of the Year: Brenda Chin(Harlequin)

Publisher of the Year:Harlequin

Agent of the Year:Miriam Kriss
(The Irene Goodman Literary Agency)

Bookseller of the Year: Clove Lake Book Store (Staten Island)

Librarian of the Year: Jeanne Sylvester (Nutley Public Library)

What a wonderful night for an industry that I love. Big congrats to all the honorees!

So glad that you were able to take a bite out of life, and to be able to go - like I have been told, you have to give oxygen to yourself first before you can administer it to others! I know how important these gatherings are and never lose sight of your dreams.
now --edit away! You can do it...
Breathe easy, knowing that it is friday!

Any night that involves cake is a good night to me. Hope your weekend is as fun.

It was a fun night and a great event for RWA/NYC. Good to see members who can't make the monthly meetings.
Thanks for posting the pics, Kwana!
