Spoilers/discussion of Tender Morsels
So if you've read the book but have no one to talk to about it, go and have a read.
Yesterday I kept an eye on Amazon to see if publication day lifted me out of six figures in the sales ranking. And lo! I peaked at 5022! Plus, for a moment there I was #3 on the Sexual Abuse Books for Teens list. I've now slumped to #4, and am back to five figures in the general ranking. So all is gloom again. :)
However, good news from the UK: Lauren the Press Officer at Random there says:
Red Spikes has been longlisted for the UKLA [United Kingdom Literacy Association] Children’s Book Award 2009 (12–16 category) Congratulations!So, can't stay gloomy for long.
145 books were submitted and 81 were selected for the longlist. 5 secondary schools in Bromley have been chosen to read, discuss and work with the books on the longlist over the next 4 months. Teachers will meet in February to select the final shortlist.
