2009 KGA Results!  
I am pleased to announce the results of the 2009 Kinda Gay Awards! We had such wonderful nominees, and the judges were fantastic to work with, and I've enjoyed the hell out of running this site and recognizing works and authors in a sub-genre that often get overlooked.

So without further ado...

You helped keep my head on straight, if nothing else, and that was more than enough. :P

Does everything look okay?

This was a crazy-tough field - everything I read was top- notch - so this is a great group!

BTW - congrats on the best author nom. :) If you'll check out the 'special awards' banner post, there's a mini-banner for you. :)

Congrats to everyone! It bears repeating that absolutely everyone nommed was fantastic - I know I was tearing at my hair trying to decide when judging.

(And yay, got a pretty! :D )
The Anti-OTPsnowpuppies on July 18th, 2009 06:25 pm (UTC)
Yay for the pretty! I'm all proud. :P

*rolls in floor*
Lilylavastar on July 18th, 2009 09:20 pm (UTC)
Oh...oh dear. That can't be good for your back - or your skin, you might get splinters, being inside the floor and all.
The Anti-OTPsnowpuppies on July 18th, 2009 09:25 pm (UTC)
Ass.

I think maybe it's a southern thing? Kitty pokes me every time I write about something 'in' the floor. But that's what we say around here. *shrug*
Lilylavastar on July 18th, 2009 09:39 pm (UTC)
Oh...wait, really? I thought I was making fun of you because you don't know how to type what you want to say. I've never heard anyone say that. o.O

But it's kinda cute, actually. ^-^

Reminds me of when you had to explain what dandy meant to me...good times...
