Book nominated for award

A very nice surprise came via email yesterday. My bilingual picture book, Alicia's Fruity Drinks/Las aguas frescas de Alicia, is a finalist for the 2013 Writer's League of Texas Book Awards Competition. The winner will be announced in September. The other nominees in the picture book category are Jeanette Larson, Hummingbirds:Facts and Folklore from the Americas, Don Tate, It Jes’ Happened: When Bill Taylor Started to Draw, and Kelly Bennett, One Day I Went Rambling. Congratulations to all and best of luck!

  1. Yay for you! Does that award come with a sticker? Even just being able to say "award" in the same sentence as "my book" is good.

  2. I have no idea if it comes with a sticker. Right now, my book is just a nominee. I know the Tejas Award thing came with a sticker. Thanks, Peni.
