My writer friend Elizabeth May just brought to my attention that Seraphina made the Summer 2012 Kids’ Indie Next List’s Top Ten. (say that ten times fast!) Looks like Seraphina clocks in at #2, behind Kristin Cashore’s Bitterblue. I’ll take that!
(Technically, my agent and editor also pointed this out to me, but Elizabeth’s mention let me know this information isn’t a secret.) (Hey, some things are secrets. I’m bad about spoilers and secrets, both.)
If you look further down the list, you will also notice a book called Dragons Love Tacos. Ironically, that’s the opposite of what you learn about dragons in my book. I don’t assert outright that dragons HATE tacos, but I think it’s strongly implied*. I suppose readers will have to read both books and decide for themselves.
* That’s a joke, not a spoiler. There are no tacos in my book. OK, THAT was a spoiler.
