The Hugos: An unscheduled post

Hey, folks! I wanted to post links to the coverage of the Hugos from last night! So excited for everyone who won.

To read the full coverage from the Guardian on this year’s winners and a little bit about the Hugo award controversy, click here. Also, N.K. Jemisin wrote a lovely acceptance speech which I teared up over a bit, here.

I’ve got to say that I am so happy for Jemisin. The Fifth Season definitely made my Favorite Books of 2015 post last year and is just a most amazing example of writing. I am humbled to be in the same genre as her, honestly. That book is an example of the kind of poignancy and tension and sheer chutzpah that we should all strive for in our writing. Not to mention the quality of prose, awesome world-building, and amazingly written characters.

Some other brief updates while I have you here.

I HAVE KITTENS. They are, in fact, currently wrestling against my feet. JOYOUS DAYS.

Their names are currently Orca and Fidelius or Spot and Fido, depending on how I’m feeling.


Also, we have a release date for the audiobook! October 1st, girls and boys. I will be doing some promotions, so if you are interested in hearing more I encourage you to hang around here or sign up for my mailing list.
