National Reader's Choice Award Nomination

Ooh I just got great news! My book SK8ER BOY got nominated for a National Reader's Choice Award. Very exciting!! I like this award cause it's judged by normal, everyday readers instead of people in the industry.

I'm especially pleased that SK8ER BOY finaled because that book was released very soon after my house burned down and so I didn't give the release the attention it deserved. (Or any attention, really.) I didn't publicize it. I didn't do any promotion. I don't think I even really told my family it was out in stores. Sad, huh? So it's nice to finally see the little book get some recognition after I neglected it for so long.

Of course it's up against some awesome authors - including two friends - Niki Burnham and Stephie Davis. So cheers to them as well!!
