Happy News

July 9, 2012 @ 5:53 pm | Filed under: , ,

JLG medalIt’s Comic-Con week, and you know what that means. Likely to be crickets around here these next few days. Not to mention, a certain dearly-missed daughter comes home midweek.

But for now, how about if I share a bit of excitement? The official link went up today so I guess it’s okay for me to spill the news that’s had me giddy these past few weeks: The Prairie Thief is a Junior Library Guild selection for 2012! It’s a great honor and I am thrilled to bits. To bits!

(I loved Brian Farrey’s post about his book being selected. Wowsers is exactly the feeling.)
