Code Name Verity audio giveaway winner and some interview links  
The winner of the CNV audio giveaway is anderyn. In between announcing this giveaway and announcing its results, CNV has been chosen by ALA Booklist for its 'Top of the List' award for best audiobook of 2012! CNV has made a lot of "best of 2012" lists, but this was one is a delight that really came out of left field for me.

I have done a lot of blog interviews in the past month, and although I've been tweeting them as they come up, I don't think I've mentioned most of them here. So here's a rundown of the links. With the exception of the Smugglivus post on Booksmugglers, this is mostly CNV-related chat. Yes, it is all original content, what kind of a blogger do you think I am? (Although there's probably some crossover in the answers.)

Enjoy... and have a wonderful holiday. Hope some of you are enjoying better weather than us (Perthshire is now officially the wettest place in the UK since 19 Dec.)

Did you see that CNV is NPR's number 1 YA read for 2012?

Speaking of foreshadowing, you also changed or clarified some details in the interview with Georgia Penn.

oh, that is true, I forgot about that. I had to go back and align those scenes. Another thing I have just remembered going back and inserted is the great-aunt conversation.

that's spectacular news! Thank you! Brooklyn is my father's hometown, which makes it doubly delightful.
