VESSEL is a Mythopoeic Fantasy Award Finalist!

Got some wonderful news today!

Vessel has been selected as a finalist for the Mythopoeic Fantasy Award!!!

I am so very thrilled and honored.  In years past, I've used the list of Mythopoeic finalists to find books to add to my far-too-long-already books-to-read list, and now my book is on that list!  Squeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!!!

Info about the award and the full list of finalists can be found here, on the Mythopoeic Society website.

In the Children's Literature category, the finalists are:

Jorge Aguirre and Rafael Rosado, Giants Beware! (First Second)
Sarah Beth Durst, Vessel (Margaret K. McElderry)
Merrie Haskell, The Princess Curse (HarperCollins)
Christopher Healy, The Hero’s Guide to Saving Your Kingdom (Walden Pond Press)
Sherwood Smith, The Spy Princess (Viking Juvenile)

I feel so honored to be mentioned in the company of these other great authors.  The winner will be announced at an awards banquet on July 14th.  Fingers crossed!!!

Thank you so very, very much to the Mythopoeic Society, and congratulations to all the other finalists!  Cue the Snoopy dance of joy!!!
