My editor called today to let me know that Faeries of Dreamdark: Blackbringer has been nominated as an ALA Best Book For Young Adults!!!!!!!
Holy Cow!! I really can't even convey my excitement. You can see the list of nominees (so far) and the previous years' winners here. I think the way it works is that librarians continue to nominate books throughout the year and then a committee narrows the list down to a final 80 or 90ish titles next January at ALA Midwinter, and also creates a top 10 list of titles. To the lovely, marvelous librarian(s) who nominated me: thank you, thank you, wherever you are. You have made my heart happy. And my brain too.
