…plus I get two days in Newfoundland!

Atlantic Book Awards, Ann Connor Brimer awardsDespite the weird hairdo, I’m delighted to announce that Betsy Wickwire’s Dirty Secret has been shortlisted for the Ann Connor Brimer Award.

The recognition is fabulous, of course, but the perks are what really excite me. I’m going to be joining fellow nominees at the Atlantic Book Awards ceremony in one of my favourite cities anywhere – gorgeous, fascinating, wonderfully peculiar St. John’s, Newfoundland.

Also up for the Ann Connor Brimer Award are Gloria Ann Wesley for Chasing Freedom (Roseway Publishing); Susan White for The Year Mrs. Montague Cried (Acorn Press).

Here’s a full list of the Atlantic Book Award nominees.
