Congratulations to my friend Don Tate on winning the 2020 Writers’ League of Texas Picture Book Award for William Still and His Freedom Stories! And thank you, WLT, for selecting All of a Sudden and Forever as a finalist.

For more about Don’s book, please watch his guest appearance on the very first episode of “This One’s Dedicated to…” in which he told Jennifer and me about the role his mom played in bringing this book about.

And I hope you’ll have a look at all of the WLT Book Award winners and finalists in the General Fiction, Nonfiction, Poetry, Middle Grade/Young Adult, and Picture Book categories — along with the up-and-coming Discovery Prize winners. Congratulations to all my fellow authors!
