The Nebulas were awesome! Attended the banquet and caught up with several old friends–met new people. SFWA board meetings, as well–really accomplished at lot. A fantastic California weekend!
So thrilled! My short story, “The Gift,” in the Urban Green Man, is nominated for the 2014 Aurora Award for best short story! Happy Dance! Thanks to everyone who nominated me!
Yay! I was nominated for an Aurora Award in the short fiction category! My story, “Turning it Off” in Analog last December was eligible, and now I am on the short list! Thanks to everyone who nominated me, and congratulations to all my worthy opponents–some awesome names on that list!
I also got a second, side-ways nomination: the novel I edited, Technicolor Ultramall, by Ryan Oakley, was the first novel I edited for Edge. Also very exciting!
Although I had seven sales this year, only one short story is eligible for the 2012 Aurora Award. Some don’t come out until this year, one is a reprint, and one is a contest winner, and therefore, ineligble. However, “Turning It Off,” (Analog, December, 2011) is eligible. You can read it here, and you can nominate me for the award here. There is a $10 fee to register for nominations, though.
Wish me luck!
To all of you–right on! But especially to the wonderful writers and artists I like to count among my friends – Rob Sawyer, Al Onia, Hayden Trenholm, Mike Gillett, Dan O’Driscoll, Brian Hades, Diane Walton! Interesting, only one woman on this list–maybe I have more male friends than female?
