The Bridge Wins Ditmar Award for Best Novel
An incredible Conflux Weekend, culminating in being honored by the committee and voters with this wholly unexpected award. Grateful doesn’t begin to described it. I am totally floored.
Congrats to all the finalists and winners, especially pals J.Ashley Smith (Best Novella) and the divine Kaaron Warren (Best Collection, Best Short Story).
Aside from that, it was a weekend filled with mad conversations, hugs, panels, launches and far too much drinking, far too little sleeping and endless laughter. What a community.
