Well, it’s been an exciting and quite excellent week for our little book, #Crankenstein.
First, our beloved editor Connie at the Publishing House wrote to tell us the good news:
Crankenstein has been awarded the Silver Award by the National Parenting Publications Awards committee. Or NAPPA.
(Nappa? I believe we need to celebrate with CRANKEN-WINE!)
I am tremendously delighted and honored and thank the good people of NAPPA.
*And I was serious about celebrating with CRANKEN-WINE.
The second awesome tidbittery was when my childhood friend Gabby, sent me a copy of September’s #REALSIMPLEFAMILYMAGAZINE and there was a full page ad for CRANKENSTEIN inside!
Lookit that little monster.
First he was a Little, Brown calendar-boy, and now he’s gone all print-ad.
We have to be careful or it’s going to go to his head, and let’s face it, his head’s already pretty huge.
Here’s what the ad looks like:
Then yesterday, my thoroughly thoughtful friend Kevin sent me the homepage from #BarnesandNoble’s website, and there was #Crankenstein AGAIN as a Halloween recommendation, along with some INCREDIBLE titles beside him.
These things COMPLETELY made my week and MAJORLY made me smile.
So to all the people who took the time to take pictures and post CRANKEN-SIGHTINGS around the world, or send me a photo of their kid reading Crankenstein, or to *clear out* the B & N Vegas store’s entire CRANKINVENTORY like my little brother Milo did, let me just tell you, it is really, really appreciated.
Like, forever and ever appreciated.
