The Goon has been longlisted for the 2011 ReLit Awards in the "Best Novel" category. It really is a very long list so there's no real accomplishment here. If it gets shortlisted then it would be cause for celebration. I don't have any expectations.
From the ReLit Awards website:
Canada's ReLit Award--founded to acknowledge the best new work released by independent publishers--may not come with a purse, but it brings a welcome, back-to-the-books focus to the craft. -Amazon.com
