It’s from Literary Arts?
The Rules for Hearts is a finalist for an Oregon Book Award! And I’m in great company in the YA category:
- Night of the Howling Dogs by Graham Salisbury
- Peak by Roland Smith
- A Taste for Rabbit by Linda Zuckerman
Bonus news: In the Loud issue of Bitch Magazine (I love their themes), I’m one of five authors interviewed about our influences and why this is a golden age of YA fiction. Discover my shocking reaction to Judy Blume’s Forever and in which author’s world I wrote fanfic! (Longtime readers may know the answer to the second…)
Extra bonus news: The aforementioned Bitch Magazine is having a release party for the aforementioned Loud issue this Wednesday, September 10th, at 7 pm at In Other Words Women’s Books and Resources. I’m planning on going — Portlanders, see you there?
