"The Sick Bug" gets its first big award


Hello Everyone. I know it has been hard not to mention anything the last week, but since I saw that Susie had mentioned it on "The Sick Bug" website, I thought it was good to go. The official press release isn't going to happen until January when the MCA's announce all of the winners, but here it goes. We just found out last week that "The Sick Bug" has been named a "2009 Gold Medal winner" by the Mom's Choice Awards®. WHOOOOO HOOOOOO! How exciting it is! I can't wait to get those little medallions on the cover of the book. So, for Susie and I, Christmas came early and we are loving every minute of it. Thanks to all of you for the support that you have shown the both of us as we have been out an about promoting and promoting and promoting. It definitely makes all of the hard work worth it.

Anyways, it feels good to get that off my chest and am now anxious for the official press release and to see where it goes from here. Hopefully we will be starting work on "The Sick Bug II" soon as well.

So with that, I will wish all of you a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! Lets hope that holiday cheer will be all around.
