Excited for the Lammies!

I’m excited to be going to the Lambda Literary Awards in New York on Monday!

Kate Clinton will host, and she’s awesome and hilarious. I’ll get to see a lot of friends, including David Levithan and Aaron Hartzler from the Openly Straight tour. They are nominated along with me in the children’s/young adult category. 

You know that cliché, where people say, “It’s an honor just to be nominated”?

Well, in this case, it really is just an honor to be nominated. I do not expect that Openly Straight will win this year. The competition looks fierce. But I must say that I’m really looking forward to the event. It’s a celebration of LGBT literature, and I am so grateful to be part of that world in my own way. 

I’ll try to post pictures! I say try, because I usually forget to take pictures.
