The Cybils Awards ( Get Ready to Nominate)

This is the 5 year of The Cybils or the Children's Young Adult Bloggers Literary Awards. I love The Cybils awards.

Last year, I was so excited to see that my middle grade fantasy novel pick -

Prince of Fenway Park by Julianna Baggott. Its nice knowing because of that nomination, at least five more people read a book I loved. I do remember seeing morereviews. From those 5 people word of book will continue to spread and so on.

If there's a children's or young adult book you love that was released in 2010, nominate it between Oct 1st and Oct 15th. Its a great oppurtunity to give a book that moved you a little more exposure.

This is will be the first year that I will be a panelist. I am on the 2010 Nonfiction Picture Book Panel Round I
