This just in: Waiting for You is on the Kid’s Indie Next List for Summer 2009! These are books nominated by indie booksellers nationwide. Warm fuzzies for you, indie booksellers! I’ll post the list when it’s up on IndieBound, but I already know that Sarah Dessen’s much anticipated Along for the Ride is included. For now, you can see the 14 teen books on their Spring 2009 list.
I’ve received some reports that both Waiting for You and the paperback of Take Me There have been found in bookstores. Their pub date is May 14, but sometimes books show up a bit early. So keep an eye out for the floor displays, since they will be involved in my biggest contest to win books. They should go up in Barnes & Noble stores on May 12. If you do see an early floor display, please let me know. I don’t want anyone to miss out on the contest! Some indie shops will also feature the floor displays – more warm fuzzies!
