The Duchess gets a Nod


It looks like our book, The Duchess of Whimsy has been named as a finalist for the Library of Virginia's Whitney and Scott Cardozo Award for Children's Literature. The Cardozo Award recognizes excellence in children's literature published in the previous year. The winner is determined by votes cast and I would be remiss if I didn’t put it out there and use this platform to try and crush the competition. If you did genuinely like the Duchess and feel inclined to vote, please proceed here and thanks, from both Randall and me!
