I got the news today: A Square Foot of Calfskin has made it to Round 2 of the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award contest. It’s no longer one of ten thousand–now it’s one of two thousand, among the four hundred books left in the YA category.
The next round of judging ends on the 14th of April. After that, if Jonah’s story makes it to the quarterfinals, you’ll have a chance to read and review an excerpt and participate in the selections for the semifinals.
In the mean time–if you’re interested, or there’s a kid you like who’s into the Civil War, please feel free to follow the link above and buy the book!
