PW chooses Little Giant for ListenUp Award…

They picked The Little Giant of Aberdeen County as one of the fourteen best audiobook novels of 2009! Thanks Publisher’s Weekly!

Okay, now I’ll confess something. I haven’t yet listened to the audio version. I have it, but I’m too chicken. What if I hate it? What if I love it more than the voice I hear in my head when I read the words? One day, I’ll listen, but I think for now, I’m going to keep the Truly I know in my mind.

And that’s been one of the most wonderful things for me in the journey of this book–interacting with readers and finding out what their versions of Truly are. Some of your ideas of her intersect perfectly with mine. Some people see her in ways I never anticipated. Collectively, we’ve made up a living, breathing character. And isn’t that what fiction is all about?
