Award nomination!

I was supposed to sit on this a while longer, but somebody apparently jumped the gun, so now I’m allowed to tell.

Romantic Times (which covers a great many things besides romance) is holding its Reviewers’ Choice Awards, and With Fate Conspire has been nominated! In, er, the “Epic Fantasy” category, which is not what I would have expected — but hey, I’m in good company:

THE WISE MAN’S FEAR Patrick Rothfuss, DAW, (March 2011)
WITH FATE CONSPIRE Marie Brennan, TOR, (September 2011)
THE COLD COMMANDS Richard K. Morgan, DEL REY, (October 2011)
THE KINGDOM OF GODS N.K. Jemisin, ORBIT, (November 2011)
STANDS A SHADOW Col Buchanan, TOR, (November 2011)

I won’t know the results until April. In the meantime, congrats to my fellow nominees, and to all the other nominated authors.

      (No, I don’t know why I have a habit of thanking people in various languages. I do it in speech, too, not just to avoid repetition in comments. But if I’m going to do it, I figured you should get French. πŸ™‚ )

    Yah, I wouldn’t use that category either, but I hope it doesn’t work against you, because yours is the best book on that list.* Congrats!

    *I have not actually looked into Stand a Shadow–it might be really good–but I still feel quite confident.

      I haven’t read most of them, honestly — what with, well, not reading a whole lot of epic fantasy these days. I don’t expect to win, but we’ll see.

    Congrats! (And I guess the scope is epic enough, even if it’s certainly not a traditional epic.)
