It's an awesome day when you get this note from your editor:
Sweet Little Lies has been nominated for an award sponsored by the American Library Association’s The Reading List.
In January 2012, a winner and 4 short list titles will be announced at ALA’s Midwinter conference.
Librarians use the winning title and the short list for a Readers’ Advisory, a go-to list when someone says that they want a “good” book to read in that particular genre. Some libraries also use the lists to build displays.
Woo-hoo! It's definitely gratifying when others enjoy your work. "Grown Man Steven" is the gift that keeps on giving!
