A pretty amazing thing happened today. My novel, The Invasion, sequel to The Call, has been nominated for the 2019 Lodestar Award for Best Young Adult Book.
This is not officially a Hugo Award, but it is voted on by the same electorate and presented at the same ceremony, so for me, these are my Oscars, and this is about as exciting as it gets.
I am hugely indebted to whatever wonderful people nominated my book. Thank you! And thanks too, to the Hugo Committee for all the work they do in the background to make this happen.
This is an incredible list of nominees that any writer would be proud to be part of. See below! Read them all for extra pleasure and joy!
The Belles by Dhonielle Clayton
Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyami
The Cruel Prince by Holly Black
Dread Nation by Justina Ireland
The Invasion by Peadar O’Guilin
Tess of the Road by Rachel Hartman
Good luck to everybody involved!
Do you want to watch a civilization topple in real time? I got you a seat in the front row. The last ever episode of CreepyCast is here. Thank you, yes, thank YOU for your support. I hope to be back in September with a whole new show.
A brand new reading of one of my old, old stories is now up at CreepyCast. It’s a Science Fiction tale of alien sex that, while not graphic in any way, is probably not suitable for younger ears. You can find it on your podcast player of choice, or by clicking here.
Yep! You heard it here first, folks. Don’t be the last person on your street to suffer the awful conclusion of The Evil-Eater story on my podcast.
