The Whitney Awards Deadline Tomorrow Night

According to The Whitney Awards website,, the following books by our blog team members have been nominated for a Whitney Award:

Lipstick Wars by Christine Thackeray
Luck of the Draw by Rachael Renee Anderson
Rebound by Heather Justesen
Defensive Tactics by Steve Westover
The Peasant Queen by Cheri Chesley

Congratulations! That's awesome. Good luck to all of you!

We still have two members of our blog team who have eligible books:

The Rogue Shop by Michael Knudsen
Bumpy Landings by Don Carey

Both of these books are late-in-the-year releases and haven't had much exposure yet. So here's the proverbial kick-in-the-pants to nominate these books if you feel like they deserve a nomination. Don't forget, and don't wait, because tomorrow at midnight is the deadline to nominate books for 2010. We don't want any great books to miss a nomination!

I've nominated books for a Whitney. Have you? Go here to nominate

I'm happy to report that The Rogue Shop has received enough nominations to qualify (the website is not yet updated, but the committee confirmed it to me via email). Thank you!

I believe Bumpy Landings has also been nominated. That is fantastic. Good luck everyone! It would be wonderful to have some CFI authors win.
