Shades of Milk and Honey nominated for an RT Reviewer’s Choice Award for Best Fantasy Novel 2010

Right after I left WFC yesterday, my wonderful publicist emailed me with some awesome news and, of course, I had no one to squee with. Shades of Milk and Honey has been nominated for an RT Reviewer’s Choice Award for Best Fantasy Novel 2010!

The nominees are:

It’s such an honor to be on the ballot with so many authors whose books I love. The awards ceremony is in LA at the RT Booklovers Convention, April 6-11. This year, the ceremony will take place on Thursday, April 7th from 4:00-6:00 pm. I had already been thinking about going because I’ve heard great things about the convention and this cements the decision.

Also, squee!

  • “It Takes Two”, Nicola Griffith (Eclipse Three)
  • First Flight“, Mary Robinette Kowal (Tor.com 8/25/09)

I’ll be heading up to Seattle for the ceremony on Saturday, June 26, 2010 in Seattle WA, during the Science Fiction Hall of Fame Awards Weekend, and hope to see some of you there.

Wow.
