Hey you authors out there:
This website is a great way to find out if your books have been nominated for state children's choice awards.
They sell sets of each state's books. I've found out about quite a few nominations before my publisher did.
As a matter of fact, I just found out that Taking Care of Moses is on the 2008-2009 Iowa Children's Choice Award list and How to Steal a Dog is on the 2008-2009 South Carolina Book Award list.
