I love days like today. Clouds have moved into Oregon cooling things down, and I’m sitting at my desk (actually standing) working on a book, and I get an email from my librarian friend in Indiana, Myrna Fields, saying that “Cryptid Hunters” has won the 2009-2010 Young Hoosiers Book Award in the middle grade category. I’ve had books on this list before, but this is my first win there. Thank you Indiana readers! You can’t imagine what this means to me. It’s certainly going to get me through a few more chapters on the novel I’m working on right now.
