Nebulae! 25Feb15 | 2

Well, folks, this website has never been very up-to-date at the best of times, but considering that the last post I made was a year ago, I think I have exceeded myself! Still, some amazing things have been happening which I would like to share.

Love Is the Drug was nominated for the Andre Norton Award for Young Adult (and middle grade) literature by SFWA! I am so excited about this. The Summer Prince was nominated last year, and I am honored beyond words to have this recognition twice from my peers. Members of SFWA will be able to download a review copy until March 15 (though they can read it after). So please if you’re at all interested take the opportunity to get a copy during the window of its availability.

And secondly, my short story A Guide to the Fruits of Hawai’i, originally published in the July/August issue of F&SF, edited by the inimitable C.C. Finlay, is up for the novella Nebula Award! I truly feel that this is one of my best stories, though it’s in a category that is so stuffed with brilliant work I would just as happy not to win! But for the voters, SFWA members can access the story in the forums right now, and that link above also goes to an online version for easy access.

I’ve also posted this online because there are many Hugo voters who are not SFWA members. I’ve never  thought of the Hugo in a serious way before, but I am proud of this work and I would be very happy to be considered. So if you can vote for the Hugo, I hope you’ll take a look at this story and consider it for the Novella category.

That’s all for now. Greetings from sunny Mexico, where the food is delicious and I have way too much work to finish 🙂
