Exciting news yesterday -- we just heard that WAKE is a Borders Original Voices Nominee for the month of May.
The program description reads, "The Borders Original Voices program highlights exceptional emerging writers." Very cool! Every month they pick a book or two from the YA category (and from other categories too -- WAKE is in the Young Adult category). Through a magical process, at the end of the year they narrow down the nominees so maybe six remain, and then one is chosen as the YA Original Voice of the Year.
