Just opened my mail and found out 2 of the stories that appear in Lessons In Stalking have been awarded "Certificates Of Excellence" by the International Cat Writers Association (CWA) through their 2005 Communications Contest/Humor Division. The stories are "Yoga Cat" and "Morning Revelry." This puts both stories in line (and competing against one another) to win the CWA Muse Medallion. The Muse Medallion is the highest honor awarded by CWA. I'll learn in November, at our annual conference, if I've won or not. But I'm extremely pleased to have been awarded the Certificates of Excellence. There were 3 judges in my category and each story had to average at least a rating of 90 to win.
