A tough act to follow

Sara's book has been nominated for the Philip K. Dick award!

Philip K. Dick award Nominees announced

This is one of the most prestigious awards in the industry. Just being on the short list is a real achievement. I'm very happy for her, even if she did wake me up early to brag about it.


  1. That's so awesome! I love her novel (can't wait for the second this March).

    Don't worry. When yours comes out, I'll try not to judge you against her brilliance.

  2. I just found out my book won't even be eligible - since it's hardback, not paperback.

    A narrow escape! :D

  3. Well, that's a downer! At least you have the potential for at least one in the house. I read SoS 4 times last year... so I definitely think it deserves the nomination - and also the win, but I won't get ahead of myself.

  4. I'm not sure I read my own books 4 times... :D

    I don't think it will win - it's not nearly "edgy" enough to compete with the zombie books from the hipster independent houses. But it's great to see her name up there in lights, as it were.
