BFS award nomination, oh my!

I had a number of possible topics lined up for today’s post, but when I got home from work last night I found this all over Twitter:

That’s a screenshot from the British Fantasy Society website, where I’ve been nominated in their 2013 awards :)

Needless to say, I’m gobsmacked and delighted—and just a little amused, since I accepted this award last year on behalf of fellow debutante Kameron Hurley, who couldn’t make it over to the UK. Ironically she’ll be at this year’s World Fantasy Convention in Brighton, where the BFS awards ceremony will take place, so it’ll be really weird if I win! Given the stiff competition, though, I’m not going to be putting any money on it…

Thanks, Holly! Hopefully I’ll win, and then you can put “award-winning author” on my endorsement of your courses :)
