Rarely does my heart ever stop (since I'd be dead), but it skipped a beat this morning when I received a phone call and e-mail telling me HPANA was selected as JK Rowling's newest "Fan Site Award" winner on her official web site.
Rowling says of HPANA:
I'm humbled and proud beyond words, and would be remiss not to give thanks to the wonderful people who helped create, work on, and contribute to this little site that has grown so much in just two years: So, to Geri and Scott, and forum moderators Natalie, Lamar, Marc, Kendra and Renee, and all our alumni/previous staff members: Great work, congratulations and thank you for your dedication to making HPANA worthy of such an incredible distinction from the author of Harry Potter herself.
I think I speak for all of us when I say we have much to live up to and will continue to do our best. Thank you, Jo, from the bottom of my heart!
