I started writing my first book in May of 2001. (Blessedly, this is a different book. I'm not that slow)
January 9, 2013, I get to hold my work in my hand - with a dust jacket and everything.
Read books by AWers!
A bottle and two books? That's going to be hard to drink.

Congrats! You've earned it!
