Longtime Cybil-ite Tanita Davis, who is one of our Sci-Fi and Fantasy panelists this year, has received some serious props for her YA novel Mare's War (which was a Cybils YA Fiction nominee). Namely, she's one of only five nominees for an NAACP Image Award in Youth/Teen Literature (in excellent company along with a few other Cybils nominees, we can't help but point out).
Check out the details on her author blog, and also please cruise by the Celebratory Mad Tea Party in her honor, taking place on our team blog Finding Wonderland. (Can I just say, as Tanita's co-blogger, that I'm doing a little dance?)
