(Sorry for the pic–I couldn’t resist.) Important to all Vodnik fans. The Whitney Awards are open to nominations right now, and Vodnik is eligible. What are these awards? They’re supposed to celebrate excellence in Mormon literature–meaning in this case, literature written by Mormons. (For more information on them, check out the FAQ.)
They have categories (that Vodnik would qualify for) in Best Novel, Best Novel by a New Author, and Best Youth Fiction–Speculative. To nominate Vodnik, all you need to do is go here and fill in the form. You don’t have to be a Mormon to nominate. You just have to be older than 12 and not be the author (that’s me), the publisher, or anyone monetarily involved in the book.
One more time, for those of you who missed it. Here’s the link to nominate Vodnik, by Bryce Moore.
Thanks in advance. 🙂
In other news, I’m off to Quebec for the next few days, heading out with family to go exploring. Denisa’s going to try and find some awesome bakeries, and I’m going to . . . just be awesome. We’ve been told that Quebec City has a very European flavor to it, and we’ve got high hopes.
The bottom line is that I’m not sure how much I’ll be able to post. I’m going to write some posts in advance, so you’re not completely without my comforting presence, but if you don’t see me posting things of Facebook or Twitter, now you know why.
