Okay so I'm slightly(extremely) excited about this. I just read the Nominees Page and honest to God squealed a couple of times. HA now that you're confused I'll explain what it is. Basically the Quill Awards are the Grammys or Oscars but for YA fiction. I AM SO FREAKING EXCITED AND IN TO THIS!!!!!!!!!!!! It is a really great way to appreciate our favorite authors, characters, and books.
"It is really a new type of award show exclusively to celebrate the last year in YA fiction. It will boast all aspects of traditional award show: awkward banter, fancy clothes, signature statuettes, and all other attributes we both love and mock. What makes this "new" is that this award show will not take place at some fancy venue, but rather it will be filmed at multiple dates in multiple locations, and then edited to form one cohesive show.
You can expect appearances from many amazing bloggers and authors, as well as some industry professionals and (maybe) some special guest entertainers. The show will air in late June or early July at a date to be determined."-Britta
