Scholastic Asian Book Award


The Kumquat Code, my middle grade novel, has been shortlisted for the Scholastic Asian Book Award!

It's a good habit not to let the inevitable road bu
mps and obstacles prevent me from writing, but I am most certainly going to let good news buoy my spirits!



Squee!

Tanita: Did I not mention this ever at chat? I saw the call for entries and thought it couldn't be more perfect for KQ. So I had to try. Crossing my fingers, toes, eyes.

Scott: Thanks. I sure hope so!

I'm sorry to make you crazy. What I saw on tv was Julie Chan make mention that the award was being given. Unfortunately I don't remember what I was watching when she said it.

Whoa. I wish I had put two and two together when we were hanging out at the AFCC - I have known about your blog for quite some time now!

Yat-Yee said...

Tarie: I wish I had read your business card instead of putting it away! I would have recognized your blog as well! I am glad we made the connection. Hopefully we'll see each other again.

So glad I got to meet you in person. =D I know two other writers in your writing group: Sarah and Tanita! I hope we ALL get together one day.
