Congratulations! It means something. I'm really impressed with the quality of the books, the poems. All of the winners (and finalists!) have been outstanding.

Hey that's great--good for you Suzanne!

gina said...

You know my feeling, S. Not close enough. But celebrate, do, because people who don't know you think it's a great great book.

Charles said...

Any day now, they will come for your book. Your poems are beautiful.

Congrats! *hug* Being a finalist is an honor, but doesn't it make you want to slug that person right out of the number 1 slot? ;)(Uhmm... that could just be my hostile/competitive nature talking.)

belated congratulations- I think I rejected a poem from you many years ago at Melic, only to see it later somewhere else and think, perhaps...
