What a nice surprise! I just found out that my book, The Battle of the Snow Cones, is on the top ten list of the 2012-2013 Tejas Star Book Award List. I am honored to be on the same list with some of my fellow authors. Good luck to all!
According to their website: “The Tejas Star Book Award was created by the Region One ESC Library Advisory Committee to promote reading in general and for readers to discover the cognitive and economic benefits of bilingualism and multilingualism. All the children of Texas will have the opportunity to select their favorite book from the Tejas Star list during the month of February 2012.”
Here’s a neat piece of information. Have you ever wondered what an author’s writing place looks like? Here’s your chance. The Millions blog post, “Where We Write,” shows the writing spaces of different authors, where they spend a lot of their time creating their stories, and where they are free from distraction and can focus on their work. You might be in for a surprise.
