Come on people, there has to be a mistake. Had I been a judge I would've never allowed my Divine Affairs to show up in the above list of winners. How come?!

The professional critique and the tons of feedback I received from kind members of this site enabled me to spot the various flaws in that particular novel. They made me see the huge amount of work that has to be done with characters, humor, settings, voice and language. Anyway, I am very motivated now to get that work done. So, thanks to the judges for their very kind and highly unexpected encouragement and my full gratitude to everyone who found the time to critique my story or my style of writing in general, especially those who showed no mercy in revealing my weaknesses. You tought me a lot and brought me from a phase of pure literary adolscence into a degree of maturity. For that, I am very grateful.

Well done and a big congrats, John. I was also shocked (and in total disbelief) to see my work up there as well. So true about the reviewers – this is a tough gig, but so worth it!
