My manuscript critique at the 2014 SCBWI International Conference in Los Angeles resulted in my manuscript being nominated for the SCBWI Picture Book Award by the lovely Karen Grencik of Red Fox Literary. And to top it off I got word yesterday that Bovinella won. At first I thought there was a mis-steak as I'd just gotten an email telling me I didn't win the Sue Alexander award. It turns out I was nominated for both awards and won the picture book one. Holy Cow! I'm udderly delighted! Thank you SCBWI! Thank you writing friends at the Cen-Cal January retreat who prodded me in the right direction to keep at this manuscript. Thank you, Karen, for the encouragement. And thank you, funny cows everywhere, for inspiration.
