Tomorrow I will continue my discussion of The Shallows, but today I want to take a moment to celebrate. First, a warm and hearty congratulations to fellow Great Potential Press authors Joy Lawson Davis and Teresa Smith Masiello for their recent Arizona Book  Awards! Joy won in the Parenting/Family Issues category for Bright, Talented and Black (read a review), and Teresa won in the Education/Teaching/Academic category for Guiding Advanced Readers in Middle School. You can see a complete list of winners at the Arizona Book Publishing Association website.

Also, I’m very pleased that The Smart Teens’ Guide to Living with Intensity was named best book in both the Juvenile/Young Adult—Nonfiction and Psychology/Self-Help categories. Continued thanks to everyone at Great Potential Press for their support!
