BLOOD GUARD a finalist for South Dakota’s YARP Award!
And the happy news just keeps rolling in!
I just received notice that The Blood Guard has popped up on the South Dakota Library Association’s annual list of finalists for their Young Adult Reading Program Award. Beginning with Teen Reads week this October, students are invited to rate the nominated titles with a score of 1 to 5. Those votes help determine the winner come next spring.
It is an honor to be counted among the dozen blisteringly good nominees for this middle-grade award, and an honor to know that The Blood Guard will be read by teens in all of the great places of the state of South Dakota.
