2012 ABNA Winners!

Congratulations to Alan Averill and Regina Sirois, winners of the 2012 Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award. Get ready to learn alllllll about the publishing industry, you two. It's quite an education. And I mean that in a good way.

Averill's The Beautiful Land and Sirois' On Little Wings are available for preorder on Amazon, naturally.


  1. Thank you, Jill! It's been great following your journey. They gave us a copy of spookygirl so we would know what is expected of us. :) You did a great job. Feel free to pass along any wisdom...

    1. Hee! I wondered if they'd do that again this year. Last year we were each given a copy of Farishta and and an ARC of Sign Language.

      Here's the best "wisdom" I can offer you at this moment: Get ready for a lot of people to think your book is coming out *this* August, and be prepared to explain that, unfortunately, that's not how publishing works. Next, be ready to answer the question "So when IS it coming out???" many times. Many, many times. ;)

      You have a collection of truly amazing moments coming up over the next year -- enjoy them!
