Thank you for celebrating my good news with me. WRITING NEW ADULT FICTION was a pleasure to write, and I’m pleased that the San Diego Book Award committee finds it worthy of their honor. I’m especially thrilled to have heard from so many of you that it’s been a useful addition to your writing life. Mission accomplished! And now for the winner of the Free Full Manuscript Edit giveaway: Congratulations, Serene Heiner!
Happy writing to all!
I’ve sent Serene an email and look forward to hearing about her project. I send the rest of us into the new week with a powerful statement from this month’s SCBWI Summer Conference:
“Surround yourself with people who are going to cheer you on.” –Kwame Alexander, Newbery Medalist
