A salute to the Dallas Observer and the Texas Library Association (and you)
Before Revenge of the Star Survivors reaches the end of its first calendar year, I wanted to take a moment to offer one more round of thank-yous.
First -- thanks to the Dallas Observer for making it one of the 10 Best Books of 2017 by Local Authors. If you know the local authors on that list -- they are pretty darn good, and it was a big, pleasant surprise to see my name among them.
Second -- thank you, Texas Library Association, for making Star Survivors a Spirit of Texas Reading Program-Middle School pick. Anyone who has read the book might suspect that I have a soft spot for libraries and librarians, and it's humbling to get recognition from them. (See you at the TXLA conference in Dallas, librarians!)
Finally -- thank you, readers and everyone else who has been so kind and supportive of my little book of nerdish delights. What an amazing year it has been. Because of you. I am grateful.
And -- we're not done yet! Because Revenge of the Star Survivors has a busy 2018 ahead. A sneak peek:
If you're in Highland Park, I'll see you at the HP Litfest on Feb. 23. (And congrats, Scots, on that whole football thing, which I hear is a big deal to many people.)
And on April 20-21, look for me at the North Texas Teen Book Festival, tucked in among this list of astonishingly fantastic authors. Seriously -- if you are reading this, you will want to be there.
I hope to be able to make a few additional announcements soon. Until then, thank you for reaching for the Star Survivors. (Did I really just write that? Sorry.)
