Guess what I found out yesterday?
Only that CHICKS UNRAVEL TIME HAS BEEN NOMINATED FOR A HUGO AWARD IN THE “BEST RELATED WORK” CATEGORY!
That’s right, kids, I have an essay in a Hugo-nominated anthology! Career milestone….check.
For those who don’t know, the Hugo Award is the highest honor in science fiction, and is given out and administered by members of the World Science Fiction Convention (WorldCon). It’s basically the Oscar of sci-fi.
The full list of this year’s nominees can be viewed HERE.
I can’t begin to tell you how excited I am about this! :) I’m so proud of our wonderful editors, Deborah Stanish and LM Myles, for their amazing work. They are so smart, and were so great to work with in the editing process – they deserve every bit of success! Also, I have to commend the other writers who contributed to the anthology. As I’ve been reading each essay over the past couple of months (I spread things out when reading anthologies), I’ve been marveling at the totally different takes on Who throughout. These essays are so insightful and intelligent (and often funny!). I’m honored to be in their company. And just FYI – if this wins, the award would be going to our editors. I would not be winning one. Still, it’s exciting that something I wrote contributed to something possibly winning a Hugo. That’s super-sweet!
Good luck, Chicks! And we’ll see you at WorldCon! :)
