Good News and Winner!

Hey guys,

Starting off the new year has been rocky. First, I had the flu--woohoo. Then I had to contend with THE APOCALYPSE THAT HAD HIT MY INBOX. Seriously. So. Many. Emails. And that was not including queries. I don't want to even go there (beginning of a new year there is always a tidal wave of submissions). And now we have a snow day, which would normally be awesome!awesome!awesome! except we're already so behind, this just makes it worse. Feh.

So if it seems like we haven't been around as much on twitter or on the blog, there you have it.

But I can't delay some good news and announcing the winner to our first giveaway of the year!

Good News: Kody Keplinger's THE DUFF (Designated Ugly Fat Friend) has been chosen byYALSA as one of the Top Ten Quick Picks for Reluctant Young Adult Readers. Yaaaay!!! This is such awesome news, and so well-deserved. Congrats, Kody!! Read her own announcement about it here.

OMGosh! YAY Kody! What a sweetheart.

And the flu...I feel for you. I had it for six days. Felt like I'd been hit by a bus. ";-)

Congrats to Kody! I read THE DUFF and thought it was really good. Then my wife picked it up... and ripped through it in 3 days. She read two books last year, THE DUFF being one of them. She LOVED it.

Oh... and congrats to Kody's agent too. Jo something or other. ;-)
