Just found out that my honey-pie Trevor Calvert's book of poetry, Rarer and More Wonderful, was not only nominated, but was a finalist for the Northern California Independent Booksellers Association 2009 Book Award in the poetry category, alongside such poetic luminaries as John Isles, Andrew Joron, the late Barbara Guest, and the late Jack Spicer.

From the NCIBA:

Northern California Independent Booksellers 2009 Book of Year Awards: Honoring books published in 2008 and written or illustrated by Northern California authors and artists

The second annual Book of the Year awards, presented by members of the Northern California Independent Booksellers Association (NCIBA), have been announced. The 2009 awards honor local authors and a children’s book illustrator whose books were published for the first time in 2008.

Independent booksellers representing 200 stores in the region voted for their favorite titles from a Finalists ballot created by bookseller committees.


Woo-hoo!

You can still get this hot number from Scrambler Books. Try before you buy here.
