Hello, all! Sorry to be chiming in so late.

A few procedural details:

--We only accept the first nomination of a title, so if a title you love has already been nominated, please pick another.

--Regarding the nomination for Von Allan's "The Road to God Knows": at this time we aren't taking nominations for webcomics. All titles nominated need to be available in print form.

--Satchel Paige, MeruPuri, and The Wall are all excellent titles, but they are unfortunately not within the date range we are considering. Only titles published between Jan. 1, 2008 and Oct. 15, 2008 can be nominated.

Please, if you've nominated something that is ineligible due to one of the criteria I listed above, feel free to submit a different title for consideration. We thank you for your support of the Cybils!

Snow Wildsmith

And my personal nomination is: Real, vol. 1 by Takehiko Inoue.

@Liz Jones: Which of the Twilight Zone graphic novels did you want to nominate? I noticed that there were several published in 2008.

Emiko Superstar by Mariko Tamaki / Steve Rolston


Owly Time to Be Brave, by Andy Runton. Its a really great book!

Kevin Parker aka Book Award Tragic

Requiem for a Beast by Australian Matt Ottley.
ISBN: 9780734407962
ISBN-10: 0734407963
Publisher Hachette Livre Australia.

This book has attracted a bit of controversy in OZ but I have read it, or rather 'experienced' it and it is excellent, dealing with some challenging emotional subject matter elegantly. It combines text, graphics, fine art and music, all put together by Ottley to great effect.

Not sure about a release date for the USA.
More info about the book on my Australian Literary Award (www.literaryawards.com.au) site and comment on my Book Award Tragic blog.

It has won some recent awards here in Australia so not sure if it's eligible for the Cybils but it deserves a wider audience despite very Australian atmospherics.

Looking forward to covering this years Cybils again on Bookawardsonline.com and publicising the awards via my UK, Canadian, Australian and New Zealand Literary Award sites.

Keep up the great work!

Rapunzel's Revenge by Shannon Hale



SPY GODDESS: THE CHASE FOR THE CHALICE by Michael P. Spradlin and Illustrated by Rainbow Buddy. The novels were wonderful and the graphic novel captures the characters and the story perfectly.

Hello again!

Two things:

@deborah--Since Freakangels won't be nominated until Dec. 2008, it will not be eligible for this year's Cybils. It will be eligible next year, but for now you are welcome to pick another title.

Everyone else--PLEASE REMEMBER THAT ONLY THE FIRST NOMINATION OF A TITLE IS ELIGIBLE, so if you nominated a title that has already been nominated, please pick another title. I'm looking forward to hearing back from: Gaia Eirich, Kaolin Fire, Nan Hoekstra, Elizabeth (http://bravepandagirl.blogspot.com/), Jason Cardy, and David Pugh with their alternate choices.
