By Darkness Hid was named a Best Science Fiction, Fantasy, and Horror novel of 2009 by VOYA magazine. VOYA stands for Voice of Youth Advocates and is a magazine that covers young adult books for libraries. I ordered a copy of the magazine in April and it took a long time to get here.
Since my last name is Williamson, By Darkness Hid is at the bottom of page three. Still, I was very excited to have my Christian teen fantasy novel on a list with such well-known, general market novels. How cool is that?
I scanned in the article and you can see it here: http://jillwilliamson.files.wordpress.com/2009/01/voya-best-of-science-fiction-fantasy-and-horror-2009.pdf
VOYA magazine says you do not need permission to post this list in a classroom or library, so feel free to print this out and give it to your English teacher or librarian.
