Ok, first off, I finally did the thing and made an awards eligibility post for 2018 on Twitter, but I’ll briefly recap it here.
For short stories, I’d like people to consider “Earn Your Breath,” which appeared in ep. 294 at Cast of Wonders. This is my short story pushing back against all of the judgment and ignorant-but-well-intentioned ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ commentary I’ve received since I was a child about my lack of desire for kids of my own. You know, those “you’ll change your mind when you’re older” and “you’re not a real woman” kinds of comments.
I’m also in my second and last year of eligibility for the John W. Campbell Award for Best New Writer, for those of you who will be nominating for the Hugo ballot. Hugo nominations open in early 2019, and if you’d like to nominate you must join Worldcon by December 31st.
If there is any space on your ballots I would be grateful for any consideration.
Whew, ok, that part is over with (it’s really weird to plug yourself)!
Been a bit quiet here on the blog as I keep muddling around with what sort of content I want to put on it. I do plan to do a reading recap of some sort post at the end of the month or early in January. Trying to do two reading challenges wasn’t the best idea, partly because I did so much non-challenge reading this year. I’m going to come pretty close to finishing on both lists, but am not going to make it all the way on either.
But, I’m very intrigued by Book Riot’s Read Harder challenge list for 2019.
I’ll have some more writing news to share in the new year.
