Color me excited!

I got the news today that I'm on the YA Fiction panel for the Cybils this year! Wooohooo! Not only am I so excited about participating, I'm also super excited about working with such an awesome crew of bloggers:

Organizer Jackie Parker from Interactive Reader


Leila Roy from bookshelves of doom
Becky Laney from Becky's Book Reviews
Amanda Snow from A Patchwork of Books
Trisha Murakami from The YA YA YAs
Kate Fall from Author2Author
Jocelyn Pearce from Teen Book Review

And judges:

Jackie Parker from Interactive Reader
Sarah Stevenson from Finding Wonderland & Readers' Rants
Little Willow from Bildungsroman
Lili Wilkinson from Inside a Dog
Casey Titschinger from Avid Teen Reader

I'm so looking forward to working with everyone!

Remember, nominations for the Cybils open on October 1! Read an awesome book published between Jan. 1, 2008 and Oct. 15, 2008? Anyone can nominate a book (authors, publishers, teachers, development assistants, bloggers, non-bloggers, librarians, law students, construction workers, kids, marketing gurus at sign-making companies... anyone!). So get on over there sometime between October 1 and October 15 and make your voice heard!

And (completely unrelated) as if the Cybils news wasn't enough to make me positively giddy, I got a box of books from Houghton Mifflin today!

Today = best day ever!

I can't wait to start the Cybils reading and discussions! I think everyone on our panel is going to work great together!

I also wanted to mention that I nominated you for an award!
