The Aurealis Awards: The Last Stormlord shortlisted


My fifth shortlisting for the Best Fantasy Novel of the year, this time with The Last Stormlord. Every year I've had a book nominated because it was eligible, I've been shortlisted, which doesn't actually encourage me to think I will ever win, but who cares? I am very, very happy!

Others shortlisted:
Peter M. Ball, Horn, Twelfth Planet Press

Trudi Canavan, Magician's Apprentice, Orbit

K.E. Mills, Witches Incorporated, HarperVoyager

K.J. Taylor, The Dark Griffin, HarperVoyager

The only one I've read is the book I beta read - Karen Miller's. (As usual, none of them are available here yet, that I have seen.) Nice to see a small press out there with a novel nomination.

And there's lots of my pals out there in the other categories too.

Now this rates as a very good day.

Congrats, Glenda :)

Well I wish you a win, but I would wish Karen the same. I certainly think The Last Stormlord deserves it.

Yeah, Jo, I feel a bit the same way. I know Trudi too - and she is a fine writer as well. So I am a bit conflicted. Feels funny to be slogging it out with friends! Makes it nice though if one of them wins instead of me.

I haven't read some of the other writers, I will have to look into it seeing your book is not yet available. I have asked a friend to mail it to me the minute it is published in Oz.
