RT nomination and other news

I have exciting newsy stuff!

First, to my utter shock and delight, The Shambling Guide to New York City was nominated for Best Urban Fantasy Novel of 2013 by RT Book Reviews! The awards are given out at the RT convention in May, and I’ll be there for sure! Other nominees include Karen Lord, Lauren Beukes, Mary Robinette Kowal, Diana Rowland, John Scalzi, Paul Cornell, and many other talented authors. Check out the nominees!

The other news is of a more personal nature. I’ve signed with a new agent: Jen Udden at the Donald Maass Literary Agency! Jen and I bonded at WorldCon and I’m super excited to be working with her. I’ll be putting her info on my Contact page.
