Maureen McGowan said...

Finalists and we did it drunk!

Maureen McGowan said...

Actually, wish I were drinking. Busy on revisions. Hopefully we'll get a chance to celebrate, soon.

Sinead M said...

Do you find it odd that both stories have a strong gay element?
We definitely have to celebrate soon.

I think the strong gay element combined with our insatiable appetite for beer has served us well.

Sinead - you can intrude on my day any time with news like this!!!!!!

OMG, OMG, OMG, OMG!!!!!

Congratulations! I just saw this and I'm so thrilled I'm tearing up a little.

RITA and Golden Heart. Both of you in the same year. Just freaking unbelievable.

This is going to be such an amazing year at Nationals.

What? The drunk writers are all gay? I'm spreading a rumor.

Molly, does this mean you'll update your website? lol. I'm at the point I'll make you a new website for free, just to bring it into 2010!

Congrats, congrats, you guys. This is awesome and so well deserved.

Yay, Molly and Maureen! Yay!!!

We will celebrate our tushies off at Nationals!

Maureen McGowan said...

Thanks, everyone!

It is funny that both of our stories do have gay characters.

Simone, I promised Molly I'd do her a new website last fall, right before I got my contracts, and then I couldn't. She does need a new one. So do I. :)

Molly O'Keefe said...

Simone I know you're joking but I'm not -- I need you. I'll pay you. I mean it. Email me if you're serious.
