Some really great developments for The True Meaning of Smekday recently:
It won a Cuffie (the Off the Cuff awards compiled annually by Publishers Weekly based on a poll of booksellers) for Funniest Book of the year, tying with Diary of a Wimpy Kid.
It was named best of 2007 in the Fantasy and Science Fiction category of the Cybils (the Children's and YA Bloggers' Literary Awards). Pssst! was also short-listed for the Fiction Picture Book award, incidentally.
Finally, Smekday has been short-listed for the 2007 Andre Norton Award for best in YA Fantasy or Science Fiction.
I am gratefully speechless about all this, so here's a picture of Dracula holding a piece of garlic bread.
