About the Nebula Awards

The Nebula Awards are voted on, and presented by, active members of SFWA. Voting will open to SFWA Active members on March 1, and close on March 30. You can find more information here! http://www.sfwa.org/nebula-awards/how-to-vote'

So, to start with, HOLY CRANBERRIES. How exciting is this?

The very first Norton award went to Holly Black for VALIANT, Holly Black around these parts being short for her full title, 'I love me some Holly Black.' Other winners, you know, Terry Pratchett, Nalo Hopkinson, Delia Sherman, that little-known J.K. Rowling lady... Other nominees include such favourite favourites of mine as: Megan Whalen Turner, Kristin Cashore, R.J. Anderson, Karen Healey, Steve Berman, Laini Taylor. Basically lists and lists of awesome, within the SFF community, a.k.a. the community of my heart.

And THIS list I'm on is a list of awesome. All awesome: if you are looking for a place to start your reading of this list, you cannot go wrong with Sarah McCarry's DIRTY WINGS or Alaya Dawn 'I've Known She Was A Genius Since She Wrote Moonshine & Am Thrilled Everyone Caught On' Johnson's LOVE IS THE DRUG. (Also for adult fare, Katherine Addison's THE GOBLIN EMPEROR is hammered gold high fantasy.) I never dared hope anything like this for Unmade, which is one of a series, and romantical, but I am both delighted and honoured.

Finishing up a series, one goes: 'Oh God, what did I spend the last four years of my life on? Could I have spent it better/done it differently/should I have done something else, would that have been better?' And you wonder, well, did writing this make a difference? And you think, maybe to a few people. (My starbunnies of delight.)

And then the starbunnies show up, and they say: no, really. We're here. We were with you all along. We thought it was good.

(And then everyone said: really, this girl is up for an award and she says stuff like starbunnies? ;))

Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Wow, this is SO great!
As a big Sci Fi fan since childhood, both Nebula and Hugo Awards have a great meaning to me. I used to always read the winners. :-)
And, you are even nominated for the NEBULA Award, that's sooooo cool!

Ah, correction, I see, it is a NORTON award. Still, I am SOOO impressed! Good for you! :-D

I gasped out loud when I read this. CONGRATULATIONS!!!

By the by, I started reading Team Human this week, and began kicking myself for not reading it sooner, as it is awesome! But I think pretty much everything you write is awesome, so I may be a bit biased there.
Feb. 24th, 2015 09:43 pm (UTC)
Oh my god congratulations! You deserve it!

Feb. 25th, 2015 04:05 am (UTC)

OH MY GOSH, Sarah, this is so fantastic! And exciting! And wonderful! And so, so richly deserved. I am dancing with glee for you, and for all of us who love this story and want to see it honoured and celebrated as it ought to be!!!
Mar. 14th, 2015 01:14 pm (UTC)
Sorry I was late to the party. That is awesome news!!! Well deserved'd'd, too!
