It’s that special time of year when I’m home from the Whitneys and get to regale you all with descriptions of the gala event. For those of you who don’t know what the Whitneys are, they’re awards given out to books written by LDS authors. I have had seven books nominated for Whitney awards. I’m zero for seven as far as actually winning a Whitney.
I can’t really claim to be a gracious loser, because I started my own tradition at the Whitneys—the loser cheesecake photos. (Affectionately called Loser Pie, by Julie Wright.)
We in the front row are pros. Sarah Eden and I belong to the 100% club. It’s a club started for people who have lost 100% of their nominations. I believe we’re the only two members left from the first Whitney awards. Not that we’re keeping track or anything.
Fun times and awesome people!
