Whitney Awards Finalist!!!
A Deseret bookstore manager contacted me last night to tell me that THE HEALING SPELL was chosen as one of the 5 Finalists in the Youth Fiction category for the Whitney Awards! I knew my book had been nominated, but the competition is pretty stiff so I didn't hold my breath to be chosen as one of the Finalists (although we ALWAYS hold our breath, hoping, wishing, dreaming, don't we! Human Nature!) and it happened!
I can't tell you how excited I am about this! I've been jumping up and down all day and emailing my family and friends!
It's an award that comes from colleagues as well as editors and publishers and bookstore owners in the LDS world, both small and large and mainstream press.
Go Here to see all the finalists in all the categories!
Thank you, thank you, thank you to the committee this year for choosing THE HEALING SPELL!
Off to do more happy dances! Come join me!
I'm serving cake.
