Exciting News!

Wow–I’ve got exciting news to share!!!! Remember how on my Virtual Book Tour a couple of weeks ago I said my book, Yes! You Can Learn How to Write Children’s Books, Get Them Published, and Build a Successful Writing Career, was entered for an award?

My publisher contacted me and shared the exciting news! It’s been selected as an:

Award-Winning Finalist of
the National Best Books 2009 Awards,
sponsored by USA Book News

Wahoo!!!! I’ve been doing cartwheels ever since I found out and wanted to share it with you!!! (That’s a picture of my cat, Humphrey, looking at my book. If you read my blog, you know how sometimes Humphrey shares writing tips here, too. He wanted to tell everyone that when HIS book for writers comes out, it will win an award, too. Smile.)

And guess what? This Thursday, I’m teaching a teleclass on the Triple Crown of Success, one of the most important strategies I share in my book. You can join me 10:00 Pacific Standard Time on Thursday live at:

The Children’s Writers Coaching Club

Visit the link now and sign up so you can get the learning guide to follow along with the class, and then call in on Thursday and join the live teleclass! They’ll be giving away a free license plate to one of the callers and it says,

“Yes! I am a children’s writer!”


  1. That’s fabulous news! Huge congratulations, Nancy!

    • Thanks so much, Rebecca! It’s certainly a bright spot of joy!

  2. CONGRATULATIONS, Nancy, on being named a Finalist for such a prestigious award!! That is good news, indeed! I’ve been wanting to tell you, too, how very much I enjoyed your Virtual Book Tour the past two weeks. I didn’t get a chance to participate, or comment before now…too much other overwhelming stuff going on…but I did read the blog every day and enjoyed it all so much! You did a FABULOUS job!
    All your hard work is really paying off, and it couldn’t happen to a nicer person. I am pleased and proud to call you friend. 🙂
    Love, Marge

  4. Congratulations, Nancy!! Hard work pays off! If you don’t mind my asking, what all comes with the award? Do you fly somewhere to accept it?Do you get a monetary prize too? I’m so happy 4 u!

    • Thanks, Tina! And no, there’s no money or acceptance program. This is just one of those awards that is very prestigious to win and gets us all very excited!
