Tender Morsels is on the UKLA longlist

Along with a swag of wonderful books—go over here and have a look.

That's the UK Literacy Association, if you were wondering.
The UKLA Children’s Book Award is a national award conferred by education professionals and it is held in high esteem by teachers, who regard the shortlist [announced in March next year] as a reliable indicator of the best books of the year for inclusion in class and school collections.

The announcement of the UKLA Children’s Book Award 2010 will be made at the UKLA International Conference in Winchester July 8th 2010.
It's listed in the age 12–16 section. I think it would be very interesting if it made the shortlist. :)

It's heartening just to read that list - there's so much on it that is so good. I'm torn between your book, Sedgwick and Ness.Good luck!

Hey, congratulations and best of luck! I'll be pulling for you and Gaiman. Hope they correct the spelling of Tender Morsels for the short list.

I've been following your twitter, but I don't have a twitter account, and there's no way to contact you directly that I can find. If I may jump in anyway: How about Yellow Aer. Like air, only much older, hence the spelling and hue.

I'm excited to hear about a new collection. Keep us posted.

Thanks, Alan, Aimee, Aishwarya and Xian B. Xian B, thanks for the Yellow A___ suggestion, also. I've just about decided to go with Yellow Cake, which doesn't make it a literally 'YA' collection, but has the right vibe—sounds like a treat but is daaaangerous!
