Golden Kite Honor / by abby hanlon

After meeting the deadline for handing in Dory and The Real True Friend on Monday March 2nd (although I was disoriented from too many hours at my desk that I thought it was Friday), I came home and collapsed with exhaustion... but then received the greatest news, something unimaginable to me -- Dory Fantasmagory is the 2015 Golden Kite Honor Book For Fiction. After 10 years of being a member of SCBWI, most of those years spent working in isolation, I've never felt the joy of hard work more than that day.  Thank you SCBWI for recognizing my little book. I'm so grateful for this honor.
