Thank You, Nebraska!

Friday May 8, 2009

jack-waving3A few posts back I mentioned that If I Built a Car was nominated for The Golden Sower Award. That’s the children’s choice literary award for the state of Nebraska. Well, I’m happy to announce that If I Built a Car won The Golden Sower! I’m thrilled and honored!

I especially appreciate awards like The Golden Sower because the winner is chosen by the children themselves. I think that’s great!

I’d like to thank all the kids who voted for my book. It must have been a tough decision because all of the nominated books were outstanding. I felt lucky just to be included in the group. I’m glad I didn’t have to decide! THANKS AGAIN!
