Wonderful News!

I'm delighted and excited to anounce that The Pain Merchants (the UK version of The Shifter) is on the shortlist for the 2011 Waterstone's Children's Book Prize! The winner will be announced February 9, 2011.

This is so very very cool.

The Shifter (US version) also got some love of its own and has been nominated for the 2011-2012 Truman Readers Award. The winner there will be announced April 2012.

So far, 2011 is starting off on a pretty darn good foot.
