Fuse nominated for Ibby Honour Roll

Yesterday, Ibby South South Africa named its official nominations for the Ibby International Honour Roll and I’m delighted to announce that my second novel, Fuse, was the English novel pick.

The Ibby Honour List is a biennial selection of outstanding, recently published books, honouring writers, illustrators and translators from IBBY member countries.

As part of the distinction, Fuse will be presented among the other honour books at the 33rd Ibby International Congress in 2012.

    Found a really cool link that goes into a little more depth about the Ibby Honour Roll.

    "Many IBBY sections consider that for a book to be selected as an Honour Book ranks as high as a national award."
