The Sunburst Award Society (for Excellence in Canadian Literature of the Fantastic) has just selected my novel, All Good Children, as the winner of the 2012 Sunburst Award in the Young Adult category. I am thrilled!
I owe everyone at Orca Book Publishers my thanks for making this book possible, most especially my editor, Sarah Harvey. I am so pleased with how the book turned out, and how Orca’s wonderful marketing team – Dayle Sutherland and Leslie Bootle – have worked to get this book in the hands of readers all over Canada and the U.S. I couldn’t have asked for a better publisher.
Winning the Sunburst Award is icing on the cake. All of the nominated titles were wonderful this year, and it was an honour to be in their company.
And if you haven’t read All Good Children yet, it’s probably time.
