Cross your fingers for me!

I mentioned this on my Facebook page but wanted to post it here, too--especially as I am trying to revitalize this blog (as an aside, I just saw somewhere that that blogging is the "Blockbuster video" of social media! Oh well, I guess I am just committed to dying forms of communication!). I have some super cool news!!

When the Sea Turned to Silver is a finalist for the EB White Read Aloud Award! I'm very honored, not only because this sticker is maybe the most awesome-looking of any of the awards but because it is chosen and given by independent booksellers. I love independent bookstores, my local ones  kind of become my second home. I was so devoted to my old indie bookstore that I had my launch party there even though I moved two hours away--and it was so completely worth it.

Unfortunately for me (but not the world), the competition is pretty stiff so I'm not going to get my hopes too high. Like they say at the Oscars, it's just an honor to be nominated!
