Congratulations to Carrie Jones!

Andrew's usually on top of these things. But given that he's a new dad and swamped with work upon return and no doubt getting no sleep at night, it falls to me to extend congratulations to Carrie Jones whose debut novel, TIPS ON HAVING A GAY (EX) BOYFRIEND just won the 2008 Maine Literary Award in the Young Adult Category.

Carrie is very much looking forward to attending the awards ceremony in April when former Maine governor Angus King will be reading a passage from the book (you'll have to ask her why that's so significant).
In related news, Carrie's follow-up book, LOVE (AND OTHER USES FOR DUCT TAPE) came out just this month and is enjoying a love fest by all who read it.
