Awesome feeling

Today I had one of the most awesome feelings. You know, that swelling, almost short of breath sensation when you see something awesome and unexpected? 

I didn't know this, but Half-Blood had been entered in the The USA 9th Annual Best Books of 2011. And it became a finalist! I lost to Sherrilyn Kenyon and Dianna Love, but come on, if I was going to lose to anyone, I'm thrilled to lose to them. 

Just to be nominated and actually final is a huge moment for me and Spencer Hill, who is responsible for Half-Blood even seeing the light of day. Anyway, enough of my rambling. Here is the link to the announcement USA BOOK NEWS 



  1. Wooohooo!!! Congrats Jennifer! Can't say I'm surprised, though, it's absolutely well deserved! :) I'm so happy for you *doing the happy dance*

    I was contacted by your publicist from Entangled Publishing and will be reading Obsidian soon - super excited for it:)

    Talk to you soon!

  2. Awww, congratulations! You deserved to be up there! <3
