I just found out that THE PLEDGE has been nominated for the 2013 YALSA Best Fiction for Young Adults list. This is such a super huge honor...especially when you look at the other books that have also been nominated!!!

Can I just say how much I love YALSA and libraries and librarians, and that I can hardly believe how lucky I've been to have such fabulous readers and awesome support? You guys, all of you, are the very, very best!!!!!!

And yes...I am this excited...

Wooohooo! This is so very well deserved. The Pledge is one of the most promising books that I've read, and I know for a fact that it will be an awesome series.

Thanks, Zachary. And OMG look at that ginormous book cover. On my blog, it was NOT that huge!!!

You've gotta love the blog to Goodreads conversions sometimes. I've all but stopped using it. And you're quite welcome :)

Melanie York I absolutely LOVED this book. I am waiting quite impatiently for the next one...any ideas on when we will see book two? It was refreshing to see an original idea in a genre that is too often bogged down by sappy romance angles and not enough character development. I only read Young Adult these days - paranormal books are an old love of mine from my teens. Congrats on the award. I recommend your novel to all the teens asking what they should read next - and the adults too!
