We are so proud of Bonnie! Last night her phenomenal novel, Talking to the Dead, won "Best Contemporary Novel" at Canada's The Word Guild's annual awards ceremony!

You go, girl!

Bonnie,
That's fantastic!!! You know I loved it. It made me clap. You know a book is good when clapping is involved.

Congratulations!

Yay Bonnie! Congratulations and well deserved!

I read that just last week and loved it! Well deserved! (It turned out to be one of those rare books from the library that I brought home in the morning and then spent all day reading and neglecting everything else I "should" have been doing. Congratulations, Bonnie! Your book also receives my personal "My Family is Getting Frozen Pizza for Dinner" Award. :)

Lovely! So happy your talent is being rewarded by this kind of attention. It's well-deserved, Bonnie girl!

Doing a one-legged happy dance for you!

I clapped too, and called her Lovely, just like Patti. It was an honourable mention for Book of the Year as well.

Her non-fiction Your best You won an Award of Merit at the same gala event.
