I’m thrilled to announce that this past weekend at ConGregate, my book Ghost Train to New Orleans won the 2015 Manly Wade Wellman award! I was super surprised, especially since The Shambling Guide to New York City won the 2014 prize and I didn’t expect Ghost Train to win 2015. The award recognizes outstanding achievement in science fiction and fantasy novels written by North Carolina authors. It’s voted on by the member of four NC conventions: illogiCon, ConCarolinas, ConTemporal, and ConGregate.
I was up against some amazing authors, including my friends James Maxey (NC Piedmont Laureate), Gail Z. Martin, and David Drake, so there was some fierce competition.
My friends Rebecca and Dennis picked up the award for me, so I haven’t gotten it yet, but I’ll post a picture when I do!
I have recused myself from the 2016 award consideration.
Get those award winning books! (affiliate)
