No Sibling Rivalry Here!

While twin sleuths Cyd and Jane of my Megabyte Mystery series suffer from sibling rivalry, the novels in the series don't! 

Each book has it's own nom.   

My second middle grade novel Dead Bird through the Cat Door was nominated for the the inaugural John Spray Mystery Award, administered, along with a number of other literary awards, by the Canadian Children's Book Centre (CCBC).    

The John Spray Mystery Award was established in 2011 to honour excellence in the mystery book format. John Spray, President of the Mantis Investigation Agency, noted that mystery books made him a passionate reader at an early age and helped him find his chosen career. It will be awarded annually to a Canadian author of an outstanding work of mystery writing for young people.

Good luck to all the nominees. The winner will be announced in Toronto next week! 

Dead Frog on the Porch was nominated for the Golden Eagle Book Award. The Golden Eagle Book Award is a children's choice literary award that is given annually to an Alberta writer whose book is selected by children in grades four through eight from schools in a number of southern Alberta communities. The students read the books in the fall, vote on them and come up with a short list by February. 

I'm excited to be nominated and happy to see lots of my Alberta writing peeps on the list as well. 

Let's hear it for the noms!  

I know, one too many cat pics for this blog post, right!?
