A thing that happened…

A thing that happened… is that Orphan Island is somehow nominated for a National Book Award.

Four years ago, when I was starting over, trying to get back to dead-tree-writing, I thought this book was unlikely to be published.

Certainly, I never ever ever could have imagined this.

I want to thank everyone who has read and embraced this weird book of mine. ┬áSeriously. ┬áThe little kid I was, the girl who dreamed of writing books someday… she never thought to dream of this.

I’m still pinching myself.
