My Beating Teenage Heart News & Giveaway

I'm absolutely thrilled, stunned and honoured (with a "u" Canadian style!) to report that My Beating Teenage Heart has been shortlisted for the Canadian Library Association’s Young Adult Book Award. Here's the entire list of finalists:

The Gathering by Kelley Armstrong (Random House)
All Good Children by Catherine Austen (Orca)
Fanatics by William Bell (Random House)
The Woefield Poultry Collective by Susan Juby (HarperCollins)
Once Every Never by Lesley Livingston (Penguin Canada)
My Beating Teenage Heart by C.K. Kelly Martin (Random House)
The Town that Drowned by Riel Nason (Goose Lane)
This Dark Endeavour by Kenneth Oppel (HarperCollins)
Karma by Cathy Ostlere (Penguin Canada)
Held by Edeet Ravel (Annick)

Now I understand what people mean when they say they're happy just to be nominated. It's huge just to make that amazing list and I couldn't be more pleased. Congrats to every one of those fantastic authors on this shortlist with me!

And if you're a Canadian resident who would like to win a signed copy of My Beating Teenage Heart head on over to the Musings of a YA Reader blog to enter the contest. There's also an interview with me up as part of their Charming Canucks series which you'll want to check back in on for more Canadiana! maple leaf
