I was so excited to learn that Scarlett Summer was a finalist in the Historical Category of the 2015 Rosemary Award for Excellence in Young Adult Fiction! I am a YARWA member and I helped judge the contemporary category, so this honor meant a lot to me. I know there were lots of strong submissions this year. YARWA has a great line up of final judges and I've been given until June 12th to edit my submission based on first round judges' comments. The final judges for my category are Jessica MacLeish of Harper Teen, Kathleen Rushall of the Marsal-Lyon Agency, and Robin Haseltine of Entangled Publishing. Wish me luck!
