Wow, I'm still shaking. I just got back from reading my excerpt on KJFC here in the Bay Area (on "Unbedtime Stories") and when I was done, the host (Ann) had a big ole grin on her face - and she told me THE PILGRIM GLASS has made to to the semifinals in the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Awards - only 100 MS were chosen.
I'm just thrilled. Finalists are announced on May 15.
[Updated 12/13/10: The Pilgrim Glass is now available! Check out the link in the right sidebar, where you can also listen to this KFJC reading.]
