Where the Crickets Sing Wins International Award

At last I’m allowed to tell the news! Where the Crickets Sing has won the 2013 Christian Small Publishers International Book of the Year Award for 2013 in the Children’s Category (8-12 years)

This is the email notification I received last week:


Where the Crickets Sing

Rosie Boom

Boom Tree Publishing

has won the 2013 Christian Small Publisher Book of the Year Award in the
Children’s 8-12 years category.

What a great thrill. 🙂 It means a lot of publicity in the U.S and of course it’s a great marketing tool here in N.Z. also. Comes with some fancy gold stickers for the book too. 🙂 The former is of special significance to me since I leave for America in just a few weeks to speak at the Arlington Book Fair.


Award winners will be announced on Christian Small Publishers Association’s (CSPA)
website at www.christianpublishers.net and www.christianbookaward.com, in the CSPA Product Catalog for 2013, and in press releases to Christian media this week.

So you can celebrate with me! A big thank you to all who believe in the series and have spread the word to friends and family.
