Cybils Excitement!

So despite the current level of sick and sniffles in my home I am absolutely delighted to be taking part in this year’s Cybils Awards!

 

 

From the Cybils website:

Cybils Awards Mission

The Cybils Awards aims to recognize the children’s and young adult authors and illustrators whose books combine the highest literary merit and popular appeal. If some la-di-dah awards can be compared to brussels sprouts, and other, more populist ones to gummy bears, we’re thinking more like organic chicken nuggets. We’re yummy and nutritious.

This year I’m a first round judge for Elementary/Middle Grade Speculative Fiction : a category near and dear to my blogging heart!  Here are the other judges that make up the first round team:

Round 1

Charlotte Taylor

Brenda Tjaden

Melissa Fox

Kristen Harvey
@bookgoil

Stephanie Whelan
@TesseractViews

Annamaria Anderson

Now the next part depends on everyone nominating their favorites for all the categories starting October 1st, 2015.  I look forward to seeing what we’ll be reading this round!
