Congrats 2012 ABNA Finalists!

Ginormous congratulations to the 2012 Amazon Breakthrough Novel Awards finalists!

General Fiction Finalists:
Alan Averill, The Beautiful Land
Charles Kelly, Grace Humiston and the Vanishing
Brian Reeves, A Chant of Love and Lamentation

Young Adult Fiction Finalists:
Cassandra Griffin, Dreamcatchers
Rebecca Phillips, Out of Nowhere

Have fun, you guys. Win or lose, you're all in for quite a ride over the next few weeks. It'll be nerve-wracking and amazing and awesome, I promise. To get through it, I recommend positive thoughts, deep breathing exercises, and probably wine. That was what worked for me.

I'm Alive!

I've gone quiet again, I know, and I owe you posts about agents and other things. At the moment I'm staying with my Georgia friends in their new home in the middle of an enchanted forest, and it turns out that Internet access is a little spotty in magical places. Can't say I've missed my usual online time much when there are woods like these to play in, though:

This place was gorgeous even before I Instagrammed the heck out of it, I promise.

I didn't mean to be gone this long . . . but I don't want to leave yet.
