So, in addition to becoming a bestselling author for the first time in my life, I found out the day after the Hugo Awards winners were announced that I’d been long-listed for the Astounding Award for Best New Writer. Very chuffed about that. Thank you so much to everyone who voted for me.
Congratulations to all the nominees and the winner, Rebecca F. Kuang for the incredible ‘The Poppy War’ series! Full results are here.
That same day, I had a surprise opportunity to participate on a panel at CoNZealand Fringe, which was providing independent European timezone scifi convention content while the World Science Fiction Convention was being held in New Zealand. The panel was The Best Parts of the Worst Year: Favourite Books and Media of 2020.
I’m late on this of course, but congratulations again to all the nominees and winners of the Hugo Awards! It was a fantastic list of worthy works and people, and I wish you all a long and successful career.
