Shocking News: I’m withdrawing my book from consideration for the Young People Literature category of the National Book Awards


My un-consideration spurred by their non-consideration

You read correctly.  I am taking the virtually unprecedented move of removing my book from consideration for the Young People Literature category of the National Book Awards.  It’s a bold step I was forced to take because they did not consider any of my books for the Young People Literature category, or any other category for that matter.  I’m so sorry it had to come to this, but I cannot in good conscience give consideration to book awards programs that do not give my books consideration no matter how prestigious the book awards program may be.

If the National Book Awards wishes to reconsider their inconsiderate non-consideration I will reconsider my un-consideration.
