Happy of the Day

Our love is overdue

My editor sent me an email today letting me know that Generation Dead was named to Kirkus Review's Best YA Books of 2008.

Wow.

I'm too stunned to even manage an adequate happy dance. Maybe with a little help from the Vince Guaraldi Trio, so fun to play at this time of year...

Thanks, Kirkus!

Congrats!!! You deserve it! Generation Dead is one of my favs.

Wow, congratulations! You deserve it, though. I think that Generation Dead should be right up there with Twilight and Harry Potter soon enough. Keep up the great work, and I can't wait for "Kiss of Life"!
