We’re over the moon* to see that Steampunk! is a finalist for the Indies Choice Book Awards. As two former booksellers (who met while working in a bookstore) this means a lot to us. Plus, there are a lot of great books on that list!
For poetic justice I kind of hope Shine by Lauren Myracle wins in the YA category. Also, I Want My Hat Back by Jon Klassen must win the picture book award. There’s still half a chance we will be at BEA, you never know, so maybe we will see in person who wins.
* Ok, so we’re actually in New Zealand at the Writers Week, but it is very away from home and it is awesome to be here so it is sort of like being over the moon.
And this week we get to meet Dylan Horrocks, whose Hicksville we’ve been a fan of for years. I even bought a second copy of it (somewhere, where?) because it was signed. Which explains, I suppose, why I do not have it here. Eek!
