On the Upside…

Sharon May 20th, 2009

_Depletion and Abundance_ won a Bronze Medal at IPPY.  What on earth is IPPY, you ask?  It is an independent publisher’s award.  I’m told this is good.

 Just as well I stayed out of bed ;-).

    Yay, you! That was worth staying out of bed for (but you can still have the bottle of wine ;))!

    Yippy for the IPPY!!! (Someone had to.)(Also, I suppose it’s probably spelled Yippee, but who cares.)

    Now I just have to read it!! I know I’m way behind.

  4. Congratulations! I’ve read the book so I can say with confidence that it’s well earned.

    It’s a fantastic book, one of a kind, practical and intellectual, personal and philosophical, inspiring, encouraging, endearing, and most of all real.

    The reward is much deserved.

    Congratulations, and many thanks for writing it.

    Now you can enjoy the wine for a good reason.

    I work in a library, and was trying to look at our copy while processing other books. Let’s just say it also won the MEA red heart of romance spine label as well.

    Congratulations!

    Wow! Great news and a big congrats! I agree: the award is well deserved!

    Count me in as another who thinks the award is abundantly deserved. It was such a good read that I keep wanting to go back and read through at least once a year, just as another nudge in the right direction, and I still keep meaning to loan my copy to a couple of people (if I can bear to let it go). Hearty congratulations, Sharon!

    Congratulations, Sharon!
    You must be over the moon. I know I would be.
    I have yet to read it (I’m still broke) but will as soon as I can.

    Congratulations Sharon. My copy seems to be permanently loaned out to one person or another and I’m sending copies to more distant folk. It’s a great and very accessible book.

    YAY SHARON!!! Big hugs!

  14. Laurenon 21 May 2009 at 11:01 am

    That’s fantastic!! Congrats to you. Well earned.

    Absolutely yay you. Dmitri Orlov won an Ippy too! Maybe there is “hope for the flowers” after all.

    Yaaay! I just poked the Brandeis selectors about ordering it :-)
