2009 Indies Choice Book Awards

It was a pleasure to see that The Pout-Pout Fish has been included in the finalists list for the 2009 Indies Choice Book Awards. Mr. Fish is well pleased. In fact, he's grinning!

Thank you, independent bookstores everywhere, both for the honor of including my and Dan Hanna's book amongst the finalists, and for the privilege of having our book on your shelves. I am humbled by and happy about both spots!

Voting is open to owners and booksellers of ABA member bookstores throughout March.

Congratulations. That's a good one: lots of smart readers who read lots of books like yours best!

Congratulations! I'm hoping the best for you. In any event, think how much more exciting the BEA will be for you this year.

Jacqui, Kim, Martha -- thank you for your kind words!

It sure was a nice bit of news (in an otherwise not so great week) so I truly enjoyed it.
