It’s a pretty terrific day when an author opens the mail to receive not one but *two* Junior Library Guild Gold Standard Awards. In this case, for BLOOD MOUNTAIN and UPSTANDER. Check out ’em out if you get the chance. Thank you, my gifted-kind-patient-and-insightful editor Liz Szabla at Feiwel & Friends/Macmillan. I’m lucky to have you on my side.
These books are both available only in hardcover, and I don’t think they’ve found their audience yet, but I hope they do.
I guess that’s up to you.
And it is all — all of it — thanks to you, the readers, the lovers of the arts, the people who believe and the folks who support.
