Kristin at Norwescon

Well, I didn't win the Philip K. Dick Award but Kristin sent me this awesome pic from Norwescon, where the ceremony took place today (noon my time - I watched it via their live video stream).


Doesn't she look great? I was honored to have her represent me and she did an amazing job with the reading excerpt from Song. And, of course, I was honored to have been nominated. The winner was The Strange Affair of Spring Heeled Jack, by another debut author, Mark Hodder. Congrats to Mark!

Sorry to hear about the lost, but being nominated is still pretty epic. Still love SoS. :)

Rats, Sara! SOS is still a bloody good book!

Thanks guys. It was kind of amazing watching the live stream while Kristin texted me, both from across the planet, but it was almost like being there. I think there was even a noisy baby at the awards just like in the room with me.

Wow and yay for you. Always good to see Australian dwellers being all internationally famous.

One of the best books I've read in awhile. You should have won!
I loved both your books, and was surprised you didn't drag it out; b/c you could have.

What are your plans next?
Btw, I've posted your books on my blog a couple of times & wrote review on Amazon. Thanks http://ufobsession.blogspot.com/2011/04/top-reads-scarabaeus.html

Thanks for the reviews, Wolfy - I always love hearing what people think. I'm working on another sci-fi romance at the moment, probably another duology.

Yay! I can't wait to hear more. Will it be part of the same world, or entirely new plot?

Sara Creasy said...

New characters, different part of the galaxy - essentially a different world but I'm using the same idea of nodespace travel, so you could think of it as being in the same story universe. It's set much further in the future than the Scarabaeus books and things have changed quite a bit.

Wolfy said...

Wow, thanks for the scoop. I can't wait to get a glimpse.

I was at the Philip K. Dick ceremony, and I put a link to your book on my blog.

Sorry I couldn't write a review of your book since I haven't read it, but I was impressed that Kristin Nelson flew out to Seattle for the occasion. As usual, she was very friendly.
