Books tend to be BIG NEWS for a short amount of time and then dwindle into OLD NEWS pretty darn quick, so I haven’t had a lot of updates in a while. But TOO EARLY was published in November ’22, so it just missed the deadline for being considered for the 2023 Oregon Book Awards. A bummer, but the bright side is that I get to have BIG NEWS again a whole year-plus later! Ridiculously thrilled that TOO EARLY is a finalist for the 2024 Oregon Book Awards! And extra cool to share this honor with one of my critique partners, Rosanne Parry! Hooray and congrats to all the finalists!!
