So the Chicago Reader has an annual issue where Chicagoans all over can vote (free!) on The Best of Chicago in categories like food, entertainment, sports, and more. It’s an awesome way to bring attention to the awesome things about Chicago, as proclaimed by Windy City citizens themselves.

Apparently, my novel On The Isle of Sound and Wonder was voted the runner up for Best New Novel by a Chicagoan.

First of all – WHAT.

Second of all – EXCUSE ME.

Third of all – I literally would not have known that this happened except my lovely friend Ami posted it on my wall. THANK YOU for the alert, Ami!
