I am thrilled to announce that I was awarded CNYRW's 2010 Amber Schalk Volunteer of the Year Award! This award is given yearly to one lucky peer-nominated recipient for RWA chapter service throughout the year. I designed and maintain the CNY Romance Writers website, and it's always been a labor of love to me, so it's more play than work. So it was with complete surprise that I received this award. I quite literally rose out of my seat wondering if they actually did say my name. :)
A huge thank you to everyone who nominated me for this award, and I will hang it proudly over my writing desk. CNYRW is such a wonderful and supportive chapter, and I truly appreciate this honor.
