Happy 14th Day: November!

Honestly, I can’t believe it’s November. I’m waffling between “it should be October” and “isn’t it December already?” We’ve had a long year with a lot of cover reveals, positive reviews, interviews, lists, and–naturally–book launches. But we aren’t done yet.

Here’s the news for this month:

First, NO SURRENDER SOLDIER by Christine Kohler is nominated for ALA’s YALSA Quick Pick list! It was also awarded a bronze medal by the Military Writers Society of America in the YA category. Congratulations, Christine!


Second, WINTER FALLS by Nicole Maggi got a glowing Kirkus review! Woohoo, Nicole!


And third, THE FIRE WISH by Amber Lough was selected for the Texas Library Association’s 2015 Lone Star Reading List. (I can personally attest that the author was ecstatic and honored at the news.)


I’ll let one of my favorite princesses bid you adieu:

Best. Princess. Of. All. Time.

Amber Lough lives with her husband and two kids in Germany. She spent much of her childhood in Japan and Bahrain. Later, she returned to the Middle East as an Air Force intelligence officer to spend eight months in Baghdad, where the ancient sands still echo the voices lost to wind and time. Her Middle Eastern fantasy, THE FIRE WISH, debuted this July 2014 from Random House Books for Young Readers.
