It’s true! In case you don’t believe me, here is the picture of the trophy, along with my Shirley Jackson Award nominee stone. Couldn’t be more grateful to the Aurealis Award Committee, and all the folks who had a hand in Collision’s success, from (especially) my wonderful agent, Matt Bialer, to Meerkat Press for getting behind it more ways than I can say, and all the readers who weighed in with helpful suggestions, and the publishers who picked a bunch them up over the last few years. Friends too, who’ve cheered me on when the going got dire. And mainly my family. I need them to be able do this.
Thank you to Meerkat Press for hosting the joint launch of The Bridge and J.Ashley Smith’s Ariadne: I love you. Thanks to all who attended, asked questions and got our over-caffeinated answers and congratulations to Andrea Teare for winning the swag.
Viper has gone in the post just over two hours ago wending its way to the ABC Fiction Award. It feels good to have done it and now to return to Blue Moves in Good Faith.
Great stuff! But go to Jalpnik.com to read the comments. They’re priceless.
