Congrats to DJ Butler!

Had a great time at the Whitney Awards Gala last night, and the award for the speculative category went about as I expected: DJ Butler's Witchy Winter won! It was his birthday yesterday, after all, so what would one expect?

I'm very happy for him--it's an amazing book, and if you haven't read his Witchy series, get on it, starting with Witchy Eye--and the award is very well-deserved. Again, I was honored to be among such finalists.

Congrats to all the winners!

Whitney Awards this Friday

In case you've forgotten, Blood Requiem is a finalist for the Whitney Award! It's competing with these four other phenomenal books, and we'll find out which one emerges victorious tomorrow night at the Whitney Awards Gala.

For the record, I've got my money on either Dave Butler's or Charlie Holmberg's books taking the prize home. Both are awesome books written by very talented writers. Although, to be fair, I haven't read the other two books on the list, so they might also have a strong shot. Nevertheless, based on what I've read, my money's on Holmberg or Butler.

I won't be at the Storymakers conference this year (which hosts the Whitney Awards), BUT if you'll be there and want to check out my books, head on over to the bookselling area and you'll find SIGNED COPIES (gasp!) of the first three books of the Chaos Queen Quintet! Get 'em while they're still there!

All in all I'm honored just to be a finalist for the award. I wish the best of luck to all the other finalists, and I'm looking forward to the Gala tomorrow!
