My life as a writer so far has been spent basking in good company. I feel genuinely, stupidly, weirdly lucky to be doing what I do, to get to tell stories for a living and to do so in a realm full of kickass human beings and maybe the occasional sentient spam-bot.
As such, I have been nominated for the John W. Campbell Award for Best New Writer.
I have been nominated alongside fellow authors:
and Zen Cho.
Further, the past legacy of eye-popping Campbell nominees rolls deep.
I am a lucky duckling.
Thank you all for the love.
I’m going to go tremble and twirl around in a mountainside meadow and sweat and maybe start cobbling together armor from found objects in my office for when Mur Lafferty tries to shank me in the kidneys. Because she will. I just saw her in the shrubbery sharpening a toothbrush.
Full list of this year’s Hugo and Campbell award nominees here, which contains such wonderful authors as Joe Hill, Saladin Ahmed, Seanan McGuire, John Scalzi, Ken Liu, Cat Valente, and more. See you all at LoneStarCon at summer’s end!
