Have I mentioned that the Nevada Young Readers Award has been announced and that Wimpy Kid won?
Don’t worry, I’m not crying… I’m so proud that Qwikpick was a finalist for this award. And I can hardly begrudge Jeff Kinney, who is the man with the master plan. There are certain books that I would be furious about losing to, but Wimpy Kid isn’t one of them.
On a more melancholy note, though, I wonder if that was Qwikpick’s last hurrah. The reviews are long gone, the contests are all over….
But I’ve been mighty pleased here recently to get some real fine fan mail from some kids in Oregon. If they drop much more flattery on me, I’m going to have to put them in my next book!
