I didn't win the Violet Crown Award in Austin, but I did get some lovely stickers that say 'Finalist,' and when I returned home my husband was waiting for me with an actual violet crown which I wear proudly around the house...
While I was in Texas, I found out that the University of Texas Press is publishing a book on contemporary Texas writers, organized by the Texas Council for the Humanities. It will feature photographs and interviews, and I'll be in it as a 'rising star.' It's set to come out in mid-2004. Ramona Cearley came all the way to Brooklyn from Austin to take my picture among the notebooks and dolls that surround my writing table--what fun! I'm really honored and excited to be included.
The book that did win the Violet Crown Award is Sleep Toward Heaven by Amanda Eyre Ward, and it's a really good book. 'A luminous story of murder and desire, solitude and grace, set in Manhattan and small-town Texas.'
I hope we all have time to enjoy books, friends, and family as we enter this busiest of seasons.
The Box Children is a work of fiction. Names, characters, places,
and incidents either are the product of the author's imagination or are
used fictitiously, and any resemblance to actual persons, living or dead,
business establishments, events or locales is entirely coincidental.
