    Let’s see how this looks:

    Hugo Award Winning Author Mary Robinette Kowal

    Yeah, that will look good on a bookcover.

    You’re just awesome, that’s all. And your writing is being recognized for the wonderfulness that it is. SQUEE!

    So – is it heavy enough that the cats can’t knock it on to the floor?
    Oh, BTW, Congratulations and poo on you for telling us to not come out to Reno.

    But… but… you weren’t eligible to attend the best party at WorldCon: The Hugo Losers’ Party! You had to stand around and accept well-earned congratulations and worship at the Winners’ Party instead.

    Will there be a puppet-show recreation of the awards ceremony?

    Congrats! I was following on the tweetcast, and rooting for you.

    By the way, we just finished reading ‘Shades of Milk and Honey’ to our daughter (12 years old) as her bedtime story – she loved it.

    Congratulations. I don’t think people will stay home when you tell them to as easily next time.

    WOW! Congratulations, Mary! That is just wonderful!
    What a well deserved honor and acknowledgement for you and your work!

    Woot, Huzzah and other weird congratulations.
    This is the best news since I found out I was going to meet you, John and Poppa Fuzzy in Seattle last June. What a fun night!
    Fantastic story, very worthy of the Hugo and very indicative of the quality of your work.
    By the way, I just finished reading “Shades of Milk and Honey” for the third time since I got it in June. Love it, and the bookplate you gave me looks wonderful inside.
    Oh Wow, I have the signature of a HUGO WINNING AUTHOR. WOOT again.

    Congratulations Mary! Your Hugo is well-deserved!

    And thank you for the great reading and mini puppet show at Renovation. I hope your new project finds a publisher!

    Congratulations on the Hugo! And be sure to get those guys at Amazon.com to update your description on “For Want of a Nail” from “Hugo-nominated” to “Hugo-winning!”

    What a wonderful acknowledgement of your work. All the best…
