A big congratulations to all the winners of the 2012 Governor General’s Literary Awards!
As you probably already gleaned, this list does not include me, but y’know what? It’s fine. I read Susin Nielsen’s winning book, The Reluctant Journal of Henry K. Larsen, and I knew as I read it that here was a powerful contenda indeed. Here’s my review on Goodreads, and I really, really hope that the G.G. award leads a lot more people toward reading this worthy, painful, hilarious, wonderful book.

You deserved to win.
Clearly, the fates knew that I had a rooting interest in two of the nominees this year, and conspired to ensure that I wouldn’t have to feel bad about one of you beating out the other.
Um, thanks fates, I guess? : )
LOL. Who else were you rooting for?
I just finished Seraphina, and it was great. Also, i am now addicted to tone-matrix. Finally, i was wondering if you could come to next year’s Yallfest in Charleston. It is an event where a lot of YA authors come together and sign books and talk in panels. We had it last week, and was really hoping you could come to next year’s.
Thanks for your time,
