I am beyond thrilled to be a panelist for the 2008 Cybils Middle Grade Fiction panel! Check out the announcement on the Cybils blog.
Not familiar with the Cybils? For newcomers, Cybils stands for The Children’s and YA Bloggers’ Literary Awards, and they are the only book awards of any sort from the blogging community.
1. Nominations open to the public on Oct. 1 at cybils.com. Anyone 13 or older – authors and publishers included – may nominate a book!
2. In order to be eligible, books must be published in English between Jan. 1 and Oct. 15.
3. The books will go through two rounds of judging. Finalists are announced Jan. 1. Winners are announced Feb. 14.
The Cybils are a fantastic award and I am honored to be a part of the middle grade panel. Get ready to start nominating!
