Does Anyone Have a Virtual Sherpa?

So, uhm, the m/m romance group at GoodReads had a ballot for some of their favorite romance reads this year.  My, uhm, name might have come up a time or two.

I can not thank the moderators and supporters at GR enough.  I'm incredibly honored, ESPECIALLY because the company I'm keeping is so incredibly grand.  The other stories and authors on this list were pretty freakin' spectacular.  It's as close to the cool kids table as I will ever be--and the cool kids are still way cooler than me.  But I'm glad that we got to eat lunch together--it was really quite a meal.
