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:
- The Bird of the River
Kage Baker, Tor (Jul.)
- The Bone Palace (The Necromancer Chronicles)
Amanda Downum, Orbit (Dec.)
- The Broken Kingdoms (The Inheritance Trilogy)
N.K. Jemisin, Orbit (Nov.)
- Under Heaven
Guy Gavriel Kay, Roc (May)
- Shades of Milk and Honey
Mary Robinette Kowal, Tor (Aug.)
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.
