I'm just giddy with joy, and guess why? Amazon.com, those fine online purveyors of entertainment, have picked DRAGON SLIPPERS as one of their Best Books of the Year So Far! Huzzah! Huzzah! It's in the category for Children's/YA books, right next to things like the darling NOT A BOX, and wonderful novels like THE INVENTION OF HUGO CABRET and THE ALCHEMYST! Isn't that the most fabulous thing you've ever heard? Let's all do a little dance! Also, Deseret Book (a Utah-based chain bookstore, for you outsiders) has picked up DRAGON SLIPPERS, which is a big deal for me, as a local author. (They are very choosy about what they carry, it has to be good, but also selling well before they'll commit.) Let's all have a bite of chocolate!
