Finally, the Top 50 its Longlist went live yesterday, and I couldn’t be prouder of the result and the team that made the decisions this year. BIG thanks to Danielle Evans (author of the multi award winning collection, BEFORE YOU SUFFOCATE YOUR OWN FOOL SELF) for choosing our toppers, and super thanks to the Dream Team of Sean Lovelace, Erin Fitzgerald, Mel Bosworth, Katrina Denza, Shome Dasgupta, Tawnysha Greene, Marcelle Heath, and of course the chief dreamer, Scott Garson.
My job as Series Editor boiled down to cat herding, a task that I am happily handing off to Erin Fitzgerald for the next go ’round. I’ve been involved with the Top 50 for a couple of years now, and I kinda want to get back into contender-mode. Or is it contender-mood?
