Here's the RITA

Pretty, isn't she? Big and heavy, too, and out of reach of the CATs! But the feather pen she's holding is very delicate. I've heard of people breaking it off **shudder**

That's a gorgeous trophy :) Were you totally shocked when they called your name? Wasn't this for your first book no less?

I was up for 2 and they didn't call my name, they give the title of the book and I was petrified. I realized I was on the wrong side of the stage and RAN to the other side.

Is it horrible that I want to stroke your statue? Maybe kiss it?

Gena, the proper good luck charm is rubbing the Rita's butt -- where she determinedly sits in the chair. Since I was home town girl at the time I won, and had two critique groups, many folks did a bit of rubbing, or patting, or stroking.
