So, this is kind of cool. THE LOSER'S GUIDE was nominated by our local indy newspaper (CITY WEEKLY) for an Arty Award (see explanation, as well as voting procedure at www.slweekly.com). SWEETHEARTS (another YA novel!) by the terrific and talented Sara Zarr was also nominated.
I have to say that I'm really honored. There's something very, very nice about the recognition you receive from the people who work in your field in your town.
Okay. Bragging time over.
