NOTE: I don't post to this blog super-duper often anymore, because I'm busy writing, well, books. (Read more about that here.) For more up-to-date, day-to-day ramblings, visit my Facebook page.

WAW Award Voting Is Closed!

If you are a student, teacher, librarian, or parent in the state of Kansas, you're probably aware that the William Allen White Children's Book Award is the annual chance for kids to tell us what they like to read. A handful of books are chosen as nominees by the main selection committee, and then kids vote for their favorites to win the top prize in two categories: Grades 3-5 and Grades 6-8. Note that nominees were published two years ago, so these are all books from 2009-2010. This award is a great way for writers to find out what kids like--not just what their teachers and parents like. Here are the nominees for this year:

Winners for this year will be announced April 25, so stay tuned! How many have you read?
