What can I say? Behler books simply rock

So I’m dancing around the office like a goat on crack. Why, you ask? Because four of our titles are USA Book News winners.

Winner (Travel Essay): Charting the Unknown by Kim Petersen

Winner (Business: Writing/Publishing): The Writer’s Essential Tackle Box by Lynn Price (srsly swooning here)

Finalist (Business: Reference): The Writer’s Guide to the Courtroom: Let’s Quill All the Lawyers by Donna Ballman

Finalist (New Age: Non-Fiction): Nothing Short of Joy by Julie Genovese

Beagle, fire up the blender. There will be tequila in our bloodstreams today!

    Oh, my, how exciting!!! Congratulations. I was pleased and then I saw your name with The Writer’s Tackle Box. Wow! Am I impressed or what?? Major congrats!

  2. Fab news, Lynn. Congrats to you both as writer and publisher!

    Woot, woot, woot and woot! *salute*

    Also, it was nice to see lots of micropresses and self-pub’d on the short lists, too. A lot of somebodies were doing their homework.

    Congratulations to you and your authors!

    Will “Congrats” do for a comment? Bah, Lynn, we already knew you rock 😉

    One thing we don’t know, though, is how you know what a goat on crack looks like. What’s the beagle been up to this time…?

  6. Thanks everyone. I’m still reeling. As Mom said, “Geez, you’ve only written two books and won gold with both.” Maybe I should quit while I’m ahead? Now, I can say that, but my fabulous authors canNOT!

    Pelo, while I was away at the Florida Writer’s Con, the beagle brought home a goat. We tend not to ask too many questions because we fear legal implications.

    Lynn, that is SERIOUSLY good news! Many congratulations to you, and your fabulous writers.

    I’m THRILLED for you.

  8. Many, many, many congratulations. That is so impressive. Well done to all of you.

    Lynn, you’ve been on the right track all along, without compromising– and these awards prove it! YAHOO & BIG CONGRATS! Ludmilla Bollow

  14. Lynn,
    You are awesome! Well deserved. You and your writers must be walking on air. Congrats to you all. Outstanding.
    Of course, I said as much in my blog over a year ago when I reviewed The Writer’s Tackle Box. Guess I know how to recognize greatness and you are great.

    Celebrate and be kind to yourself. You’ve earned it. Give a hug to the Beagle…who no doubt has already had one too many.

    Dancing in the streets with you,
    Lyn

  15. Well deserved, all of them. Congrats, Lynn! Rock on!

  18. Holy Toledo. Congratulations!
