My friend shadesong (and others) have reminded me I should do a "um, so there are some awards that some of my stuff is eligible for..." post.

Rose and Bay Awards
This is a new award for crowdfunded fiction; there's five categories, I have crowdfunded material that fits into the fiction, poetry, and other category.Who can nominate? Anyone who reads or otherwise participates in crowd-funded projects. Which is basically everyone likely to hear about the award. How does one nominate? There are separate posts in crowdfunding for each category.
Who can Vote? Again, everybody, with the caveat that no one can vote for themselves. You get to vote in February; I'll doubtless provide a new link or links for you then.

  1. Gee--I'd better make a landing page for the poetry now! That's been on my to-do list for quite a while.
  2. Fireborn has already been nominated in the fiction category by red_trillium  -- THANKS!
I feel very honored that Fireborn was nominated.  I don't expect to win; there's some other great crowdfunded stories out there, but still, it's exciting!

Thank you to everyone who's been following my adventures (real and fictional) this year!

P.S.  Even if you don't want to nominate anything, I encourage you to check out the Rose and Bay nominations; I'll be nominating some cool projects and others have already started nominating.

ETA:  I just posted this whole thing, with links, and had most of it, including all the links vanish.  So I'm going to edit in the links after posting.  Sigh!

Good luck with it all! Hopefully even if you don't win then you will hopefully get some good exposure out if it. But really, I'm hoping you win!

Thank you! I don't expect to be nominated for a Hugo, or even a Riesling. But so many of my writer friends are making these lists, and it's cool to be eligible. Makes me feel what I've accomplished, if you know what I mean.

The Rose and Bay is less unlikely, but there's other good stuff out there, by people who've been building a fan base for a lot longer.

And thank you again for the nomination!

Thank you!

I don't expect to win anything, but gaining a few more readers would be great.
