PAL members who haven't yet added their 2013 publications to their profiles at scbwi.org still have a few days to do so and flag them for inclusion in this year's Crystal Kite awards, our SCBWI peer awards. Hit up scbwi.org for details.
Voting for the awards, which are given by broad geographical region, is expected to begin in early April. We'll let you know. In the meantime, you still have time to read all our region's latest titles. Ask your local indie bookseller for help. And congratulate Kim Baker, the 2013 winner for the West for her middle-grade novel Pickle, next time you see her!
