I’m kind of late out of the starting gate here (what can I say, November and December were busy) but here’s my very short list of award-eligible writing for 2017.
ISBN: 978-0-9949565-9-0 (print)
ISBN: 978-1-98886500-3 (eBook)
When Allaigna was seven she almost sang her baby brother to sleep — forever. She may not be heir to her mother’s titles and secrets, but she has inherited her grandmother’s dangerous talent for singing music into magic. Allaigna’s Song: Overture is a love story, a family saga, and a coming-of-age novel that braids together the stories of daughter, mother, and grandmother.
This book is eligible in the novel category for the Nebula Award, the Endeavour Award, the Aurora, Sunburst, and any other general novel awards for fantasy novels published in 2017. It is also eligible for awards for first novel / new writer such as the Campbell.
See? I said it was a short list.
If you’re in the voting mood, however, why not consider the following:
- The astounding Melissa Mary Duncan for her cover art on Allaigna’s Song.
- Book designer Kris Sayer for the incredible job she did on interior and cover design, including the custom cover font
- Inker Mel Anastasiou who improved my pencil illustrations a hundredfold.
I’m happy to send review ebooks to any SFWA or CSFFA voting members. Just drop me a line here:
