What the what?!

My editor passed on some good news last week: SHIMMER AND BURN was nominated for Best YA Fantasy in the RT Reviewers' Choice Awards! (Full list of nominations >>here<<)

Considering the competition (a debut bestseller and four established authors), I'm both humbled--and realistic--about my odds of actually winning. ;) 

In other news, Round 2 edits of Book 2 were turned in last week, in which I gutted and completely changed plot points and character arcs because edits over the holiday season = Mary is a glutton for late nights and 4:30 mornings yaaaaaay what is sleep I don't remember anymore this was a terrible time to stop drinking soda.
