Whitney Awards!!!

Oh wow . . . my book Eyes Like Mine is actually a finalist for the Whitney Award!!!! I had so completely prepared myself for disappointment and overeating while watching movies with no value to them today. I am in absolute shock. I think I’ll snap out of it soon and be bouncing off the walls, but for now–just . . . wow!

And I’m trying really hard not to think of how pretty that glass book with my name on it would look sitting on my desk . . .

But at least go look and see how pretty my book looks sitting in the row of finalists in the general fiction category:

    Congratulations, Julie! That is awesome. I read about Eyes Like Mine on the B&N website and it sounds great! I wish I lived closer to the Mormon Belt and had an actual LDS section at the bookstore. I plan on reading it asap!
