I’ve been teasing you folks with the news of a surprise announcement today. I can finally tell you all that SINKING DEEPER has made the short list for the 2013 Silver Birch Children’s Fiction Award.
What that means – right off the bat – is
This is GREAT news! Breaking into the Ontario market is a great boost to a regional writer such as myself.
Not to mention – as I announced a month or two ago – SINKING DEEPER has ALSO made the short list for the 2013 Hackamatack Awards – which means approximately 600 more copies sold as well as school appearances, library appearances and book signings.
So this Spring promises to be VERY lively for me – and I have already begun working on another Nova Scotia YA novel.
