THE UGLY DUCKLING Nominated for AEP Award!

Very cool news!

My graphic novel of The Ugly Duckling is a nominated finalist for an Association of Educational Publisher's 2010 Distinguished Achievement Award! I'm extremely thrilled and honored that this particular book made the list, as I loved every minute I spent writing it.

Many thanks to artist Aaron Blecha, editor Donald Lemke, and publisher Stone Arch Books. You guys made The Ugly Duckling something really special for me.

Winners will be announced at AEP's annual awards banquet on June 8.

Wish us luck!
