My novel, Frostborn, book one in the Thrones & Bones series, has just been listed as a nominee in the 2016-2017 Young Hoosier Book Award Nominees in the Middle Grade category. The Young Hoosier Book Award is administered by Indiana Library Federation. Each year the YHBA committee selects twenty titles in the category of Picture Books, Intermediate, and Middle Grade. Indiana students serving in grades K-8 then vote on their favorite book. Any Indiana student can vote, provided they have read 5 of the 20 books in the Middle Grade category. I'm thrilled to be on this list, alongside many great works, including books by friends Jonathan Auxier, Holly Black, and Brandon Sanderson.
This is the third awards nomination for Frostborn. The novel was previously nominated for Children's Literature Association of Utah's Beehive Book Award and is a current nominee in the Nebraska Library Association's Golden Sower Awards.
