Virginia is for Lovers (of Powerless?)

Even more very nice news – Powerless has been selected as a 2012-2013 Reader’s Choice Nominee!

This means that my little book will be making its way into more classrooms and into the hands of more readers than ever before. A big thanks to the Virginia State Reading Association for this honor.

I hope to meet some of the great educators and readers this spring when I come down there for the Virginia Festival of the Book! (details forthcoming on this visit)


Thanks to my hometown indie bookstores for making my books bestsellers!

I owe a BIG shout of thanks to the Independent Bookstores of St. Louis for making The Dead Gentleman an Riverfront Times bestseller!

Powerless popped up on the list a few weeks ago, and if that wasn’t cool enough now both of my books have had that honor.

Makes me a bit homesick, I cannot lie . . .
