Last evening, I got some good news. Bereft, my YA novel about bullying, won a Silver Independent Book Publisher Award (IPPY). This is in addition to the Bronze Moonbeam Award. This is truly the Little Book That Could.
Below is a video review of Bereft I found a while ago on YouTube. (Thanks to the reviewer!)
Thanks to my publisher (Tiny Satchel Press) and everyone who read the book!
Finally, some good news.
My YA novel Bereft has been nominated for both the Moonbeam Children’s Award and the Lambda Literary Award in the Young Adult category!
The YA anthology from Tiny Satchel Press, FROM WHERE WE SIT: Black Writers Write Black Youth (ed. Victoria A. Brownworth) won a 2012 Moonbeam Children’s Book Award, which celebrates Youthful Curiosity, Discovery and Learning through Books and Learning.The book won the Silver medal in the Young Adult Fiction – Historical/ Cultural Category. (My stories, “Circus Boy Without A Safety Net” and “Bereft” are featured in this book).
Congratulations to Tiny Satchel Press, Victoria A. Brownworth, and all the other authors!
