Of Awards and Dreams
As I slog toward the end of my current, manuscript, there's been a couple of "yee haas!" to push me toward the goal. Sojourn, the first book of the Time Rovers(TM) series is a finalist for a Foreword Award in the science fiction category. There are fourteen finalists, four of which are from Dragon Moon Press. Awesome.
The other good news is that I've been chosen as one of the winning authors in Aberrant Dreams' Writer's Challenge. This contest was unique. AD readers chose an illustration, wrote a synopsis of a short story and then chose the author who would pen that story. So my work will be included amongst such big-name pros as Ian Watson, S.P. Somtwow, Alastair Reynolds, Howard Hendrix, etc. Wow.
It's been an incredible week. However, next Thursday loometh and there's this hassle I'm having with one of my characters so it's back to the business at hand.
Thanks for sharing the good times with me....
