I'll assume this is the last week of this bestseller stuff... for a while, I mean.

For the week ending the 21st of July Anibal still made the AP list in Chile. This time it just scraped in, though, in the number 10 slot. I think this makes it a five week run. I'm expecting to drop off the list next week. That'll be fine by me, though. Five weeks selling that well in any country in the world is a thrill.

Another Week Doing Well in Chile

Anibal is still on the AP list of Latin American bestsellers. For the week ending July 14 it came in at number Five. I'm starting to feel this whole thing wasn't a complete fluke.

Still a bestseller?

Well, Anibal is still on that AP bestseller list a week later. I've moved down to number 8 in Chile, but I'm still on there! I'm sitting right behind Eldest, by Christopher Paolini.

Legacy Award

I'm very pleased to announce that Pride of Carthage has just been nominated for a Legacy Award from the Zora Neale Hurston/Richard Wright Foundation! I'm very, very happy about this. It's the only award out there wherein African-American writers honor their own. Now, I won't know who the final winners are until November, when there's a big ceremony with lots of folks and a bit of drama. There will be drama, I'm sure. I'm up there with some authors I really respect.

The other nominees are: Joplin's Ghost by Tananarive Due, The Untelling by Tayari Jones, Dancing in the Dark by Caryl Phillips, My Jim by Nancy Rawles, Third Girl from the Left by Martha Southgate.
