Can I just ask for clarification - and sorry, if I'm being very slow but can any individual nominate books or will we have to fight it out among ourselves at PaperTigers as to which books our blog is going to nominate?!?

Monique Raphel High

I nominate "I Am SO Not A Pop Star!" by Kimberly Greene, Usborne, September 2008, in the Middle-Grade Novel category.

I nominate Breathing Soccer, a middle grade fiction written by Debbie Spring and published by Thistledown Press in 2008.

Kelly Fineman

MARJORIE: It's a per person nomination process, not per blog.

Elysabeth Eldering

So going on the per person nomination - can we nominate our own books or do we need to get someone else to nominate our books? I'm confused. I just found out yesterday that the nominations were open and two weeks just doesn't seem enough time and with no warning prior to this that the nominations were coming up. I'm new to all this so please bear with me. Thanks - E :)


Could I make a suggestion? I would help so much if we had a post with a list of all the books that have been nominated so far. If every catagory would do that it would make it really easy for people to know what needs to be added. That way we wouldn't waste our nomination posts and we wouldn't be so likely to miss important books. It's a headache I know, but maybe the committees would be willing to take it up this weekend? With only a few days left it would be great to have on Monday.


Thank you, Kelly. I can't believe it's taken me a week to come back and check - but I have been thinking and we will put our heads together to make sure we get our nominations in!

Vera Nazarian

I nominate A STRANGER TO COMMAND by Sherwood Smith, and A POSSE OF PRINCESSES by Sherwood Smith, both published by Norilana Books in 2008, both in the YA category.

Oops, revising my nomination above, I nominate A STRANGER TO COMMAND by Sherwood Smith in the YA category, and A POSSE OF PRINCESSES by Sherwood Smith in the Middle Grade Novels category.

I was browsing the Cybils website today and noticed that the book cover for my nominated book, O.Y.L. (Young Adult Fiction), was accidentally replaced by another author's cover. Is it possible to have this rectified? I'm happy to send a JPEG of the book cover to whoever is in charge of maintaining the site.

Many thanks,

Scott Heydt
