Zoe Won!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Just back from the RWA conference in San Fran where I met lots of amazing new people, got inspired by some awesome workshops (if you ever get a chance to see Blake Snyder speak--don't even hesitate, just go!), and was thrilled to attend the Oklahoma chapter's reception where SAVING ZOE won the National Reader's Choice Award in the Young Adult category!!!!!!
As most of you probably know by now, that book was born out of a time of great personal grief, and I'm so incredibly grateful to all of the readers who've supported it!

But now, it's time to unpack . . .

Have a good day everyone!

Alyson--congrats on your award! How exciting (and well-deserved)!!!

It was great to meet you--can't wait until DC. After the amazing Michael Hauge and Blake Snyder success, I'm petitioning for Jane Espenson to be in DC. Squee! (Saw you on Blake's blog. OMG--what a seminar!!!)

Alyson Noel said...

Hey Pam-
It was so awesome to meet you! And I agree, seeing Blake in person was amazing- I'm an even bigger fan now!
And DC? I'm so totally there!
