That award post
Some like the award posts, some don’t, but I’m of the opinion that if you don’t tell people you’re out there, how will they know? So here’s what I’m eligible for this year. Vote as your conscience tells you to.
Campbell Award for Best New Writer (not a Hugo)- my second (and last) year of eligibility.
I’ve gotten permission to put part of The Shambling Guide to New York City in the Hugo packet, so I’ll have more to showcase than a wee little (but still pro) story of 1500 words. Sorry, this isn’t happening, folks. Will see what I can do.
I Should Be Writing – Best Related Work
And, uh, I think that’s it. I worked on a lot of work for hire stuff, school stuff, and the next book. I know I was busy… I would like to mention that even though I’m no longer editor, Escape Pod is still eligible for semi-pro zine.
So if you were a member of ChiCon or are a member of Lonestar Con (or you’d like to be a supporting member and get a TON of the best SF and Fantasy ebooks for the membership price of $50) you can nominate for the Hugos and Not-A-Hugo!
(Incidentally I found out this morning I’m nominated for the Above and Beyond Award, for writers who have done things for the writer community, which will be announced later this month. I think it’s a juried award, so there’s nothing to do/promote, only to say, that’s kind of cool! Thanks to whoever wrote about me!)
