WINNER - Northern Lights Book Awards
I'm honored to announce that THE GILDED GIRL has been chosen as the middle grade fantasy winner of the 2021 Northern Lights Book Awards!
This is especially meaningful because this award "honors books that excel in aesthetic and literary qualities with an emphasis on permanency. . .works that will leave a lasting impression, ones which will resonate with the reader not only now but in years to come." [from the Northern Lights Book Awards website]
Thank you to the judges for their confidence that Emma & Izzy's story will be enjoyed by readers many years from now!
LE PACTE MAGIQUE - The Gilded Girl arrives in France on November 10th!
I got my first look at the French cover for The Gilded Girl today. Most people don't know this, but authors don't always pick their titles for foreign translations. In this case, they've retitled the book Le Pact Magique, which translates to The Magic Pact. It's such a fun title and describes the book so well. Why didn't I think of that!?
Friends and readers in France can pick up the book at their local book retailer starting November 10th. Thank you to my French publisher, Albin Michel, for bringing Izzy and Emma across the Atlantic!
