Pajo Wins San Diego's "Best YA/Children's Fiction" Award!

Hello, Reader. Things have been exceptionally busy on this end. Between finalizing my job being moved to 29 Palms Marine Corps Base, California and jumping through hoops while in escrow for our new house in San Diego, my time has been pretty much taken up. Still, I've found some time to put a few more pages of The Prince's Orphans to paper. In fact, I've reached the 100 page mark! An important milestone, but it's only 1/6th of the way complete. More time should be able to be devoted to writing once I've completely moved so I consider myself still well within my timeline to have the next book released by ComicCon 2009. Hope to see you all there.

Also, Pajo has taken the Best YA and Children's Fiction in San Diego! We had some pretty tough competition and I couldn't be more pleased to have Pajo honored. My sincere congratulations go out to Bradley Steffens who took the Theodor S. Geisel Award. For those of you who don't know of it, the award is given to the book that is deemed to be the best book to come out of San Diego county that year. Theodor Seuss Geisel is the real name of "Dr. Seuss", who lived and wrote in San Diego (more specifically, La Jolla) until his death in 1991. More information can be found here. The article in the San Diego Union-Tribune can be viewed here.

Although I promised that I would talk about another new character in the next book, that will have to wait until next time. Be patient, Reader, and keep diving in to those books. Until next time, Reader, be well.
