It always makes our day to read a great and truly Cybils-worthy book. But when we've made an author's day, then, well, I guess it makes our week or even our year! We've brought together some of our favorite author love posts from after the finalist announcement so that we can say some collective thank-yous for all the flattering mentions:
- Laini Taylor celebrated her TWO Fantasy and Sci-Fi finalists at her blog, Grow Wings
- Julie Halpern, YA Fiction finalist for Into the Wild Nerd Yonder, gave us a lovely thank-you at her Blog of Wonder
- Sara Rees Brennan, finalist in the YA Fantasy and Sci-Fi category, wrote a hilarious holiday post and gave props to the Cybils
- In the same category, Pam Bachorz, author of Candor, wrote a lovely post on her blog, as did A.S. King, author of The Dust of 100 Dogs, who made us Dog Fact #9 (which is good, I think?).
- YA Fiction finalist Courtney Summers tweeted about us.
- All the World author Liz Garton Scanlon posted about her Cybils nod on her blog Liz in Ink.
- And, last but not least, for MG Fantasy and Sci-Fi, we got some excitement from Grace Lin on her blog gracenotes.
Thanks and w00t! (And sorry if we missed anyone!)
