I’m absolutely thrilled to say that The Girl of Fire and Thorns is one of five William C. Morris YA Debut Award finalists. This award is administered by the American Library Association, and “honors a debut book published by a first-time author writing for teens and celebrating impressive new voices in young adult literature.”
If you get a chance, you should click on the above link and check out the other finalists. I’ve read a couple already, and they were astounding. I can hardly believe my book is a finalist alongside of them. I hope this means I’ll get to meet these amazing authors at the ALA conference this year. I’ll try to control my fangirling, but no guarantees.
To celebrate, my husband and I drank champagne on a school night. We’re edgy like that.
