Goodreads released its nominations for Best Books of 2012, and THE FALSE PRINCE found a place in their Best Middle Grade and Children's list! It is a great honor to be there, especially amongst such greats as Rick Riordan's two latest releases, more than a few books often mentioned as Newbery candidates, the final ARTEMIS FOWL book, and Brandon Mull's fantastic series, THE BEYONDERS.
However, if you are a Goodreads member and feel like voting for THE FALSE PRINCE, I probably wouldn't object! (Okay, I would actually very much appreciate it!) You can vote here. Voting in the opening round will continue until Sat, Nov 10.
And then on Friday, Publishers Weekly released its own Best Books of 2012, and THE FALSE PRINCE was also included on the Children's Fiction list. To be listed with authors such as R.L. LaFevers, Maggie Stiefvater, Lois Lowry, Libba Bray, and Kristin Cashore is absolutely amazing.
My sincerest thanks to Goodreads for the nomination and to Publishers Weekly for the inclusion on their list.
And I won't even tell about a conversation I had this week..
No seriously, I won't. If I do, they'll find me... J
