For Anyone Out There In Germany

I received notice this morning that the German version of Life As We Knew It (Die Welt Wie Wir Sie Kannten) has been shortlisted for a readers choice award.

Naturally, I'm thrilled.

If anyone here is from Germany and feels like voting (from Dec.3-10), here's the link!

Congratulations!! Clearly, there are discerning readers in Germany!

Hi Elaine Marie Alphin-

I'm delighted.

My friend Todd Strasser is also nominated, but I think he has a much better shot than I do!

ETA: My word verfication is "aunch" which has a nice Germanic sound to it.

Wow, congratulations! That's so exciting!

Susan Beth Pfeffer said...

Thank you Lisa-Marie Jordan-

Todd and I had lunch together and we were both pretty excited about being on the same awards shortlist!

Thank you Anonymous-

It's wonderful to have my book be fourth in such a strong field.

Of course, 1-3 would have been better still!
