Our authors love us!

As our reading period kicks into high gear, we’re excited for our authors (and don’t forget illustrators). They’re returning the love in the best way possible, by blogging about us and spreading the word.

Karma Wilson loves us twice as much–for both her nominated picture books.

Lisa Yee gives us a shout out.

Eric Luper says we’re starting to "make waves." (Hey, we’re waving back!)

Sara Zarr credits bloggers with her young adult novel’s success.

Marva Dasef swears she didn’t nominate her middle-grade novel.

Laurie Halse Anderson’s all "Twisted" (with happiness) to join the 123-title strong YA list.

Did I miss anyone? We love you all. Thanks to our authors not only for recognizing this labor of love from their blogging community, but for producing the page-turners that make this so much fun.

–Anne Levy, editor
