WOMS Library wins!!

Wow! I'm so excited. I just found out that I was a winner in a contest for librarians! Way back in October I saw a posting on this blog called Class of 2K8, a group of YA authors whose first books were being published in 2008. Here was the contest information:

School librarians rock, and we know it! Help us spread the word about the Class of 2k8's new fall contest, just for some of our favorite people on Earth. It's easy to enter and fun!

School librarians can enter by sending us an anecdote about books, reading, or life in the school library, or a snappy quote about books and writing. We'll be posting our favorites on our Class blog during November, but winners will be chosen randomly from among all entries. In addition, if you pass this on to other school librarians and they mention the referral, you and your school will be entered in the drawing twice--double the chance to win!

Prizes include:
First Prize: Your choice of a full set of Class of 2k8 books OR a free author visit from a Class of 2k8 author in your region (if available)!

Two Second Prizes: A $50 gift certificate from Indie Bound (formerly BookSense) plus three books from the Class of 2k8 to add to your school library.

Three Third Prizes: Three books from the Class of 2k8 to add to your school library.

So I sent in a poem a student of mine had written about the library, and they posted it, which was pretty fun in itself. But then today they wrote and told me I was one of the third prize winners. So we'll be getting copies of three of the books people in this group published. Very exciting!!

Here's the official entry where you can see my name announced as a winner :) Look for new books soon!
