Honors for Mr. Ski Diva

It’s the off season. So permit me to brag a bit:

My husband’s novel, Finn, has been named a Notable Book of the Year by the American Library Association. They only name about ten books for the year, and of those ten, invite maybe three authors to address their annual convention.

Jon is one of them.

He’s off to Anaheim, CA, this weekend to receive this tremendous honor. And I couldn’t be more proud.

Finn was also named one of the year’s best novels by The Washington Post, The Chicago Tribune, and The Christian Science Monitor. And it was a finalist for the John Sargent Sr. First Novel Prize, and the recipient of Philadelphia’s Athenaeum Literary Award.

So if you’re looking for a great read, look no further. Hey, you gotta fill up those off season hours somehow, right?
