ForeWard Book Reviews holds a yearly Book of the Year Awards. Murder at Avedon Hill was nominated (along with eight other titles) for the 2010 BoTY award for the category Fiction – Fantasy. Last week it was announced that MaAH was given the Silver Medal.

I want to once again thank everyone out there that listened to the podcast and/or supported the book by purchasing it when it came out last year. I also want to thank my editor, Gabrielle Harbowy, for her tireless work as my editor, and Gwen Gades, my publisher with Dragon Moon Press.

Murder at Avedon Hill wins the inaugural Dr. John William Polidori Award for Best Vampire Novel of 2010. Head on over to the Out of the Coffin podcast, check out episode 70, and listen to the awards and my brief acceptance speech. :-)

Thanks to everyone that went over and voted last month. This was a people’s choice award and your votes pushed MaAH past a wonderful set of nominees, including books/novellas by Gail Carriger, Charlaine Harris, Stephenie Meyer, and Seth Grahame-Smith. You guys rock!!

ForeWord Reviews has a yearly BOTY awards program. Murder at Avedon Hill is a finalist in the category Fiction – Fantasy.

From the website:

ForeWord‘s Book of the Year Awards program was created to spotlight distinctive books from independent publishers. What sets the awards apart from others is that final selections are made by real judges—working librarians and booksellers—based on their experiences with patrons and customers.

The awards are given out in June. Wish me luck! :-)

Winter Update

Hey everyone. It’s been a while, and I’ve got no real news to share about the podcast, other than to say I’ve got audio for two stories to edit and get out to you. When that will happen, I’m not sure, and I won’t make a promise I won’t keep, so let’s just say I’ll do my best to get it out before you forget who I am. ;-)

I’d like to say I’ve made great progress on my next novel, but that wouldn’t be true. I have had some personal setbacks that have left me… unfocused, let’s just say. Or, I could say I’m just focused on what’s most important to me, which is my two young daughters code-named Wallflower and Cannonball. They mean the world to me, and sometimes that means not making the time to be creative. And other than feeling guilty for not getting new things out to you guys, it’s worth every minute of it.

Now, that’s not to say I haven’t kept busy with things that might interest you. In November we held the first annual TuacaCon. Head on over to the official website and you’ll find some fun videos from the evening and some created either before or after the event. The evening also included a reading from yours truly, a superhero (or super-villain, rather) short story called Dr. Mercury: Queen of Hearts.

Last month I was interviewed by host Gail Z. Martin (Chronicles of the Necromancer, Fallen Kings Cycle) on her “Ghost and the Machine” Podcast. We talked about podcasting and why it is so important to today’s authors.

TuacaCon was a Blast

I’m going to be posting some videos here from the evening, and I’m already thinking about how to improve things for next year (Yes, there will be a next year). Here’s Part 1 of a skit that Jack Mangan originally created for his Deadpan podcast. I added some video elements and played it as part of the evening’s events.

TuacaCon

Saturday evening I am coordinating and co-hosting a virtual convention called TuacaCon. It is an excuse to get together with a lot of friends, both in person and virtually, and show off some of their great talents. There will be readings, interviews, music, and hopefully a surprise or two.

Here’s a quick promo for the event:

October Update

A quick update for those of you that like these sorts of things:    :-)

October has been a busy month, as all months are it seems. I am working on a new writing project, which right now means a lot of research, because it takes place in our world and not a world of my creation. More on that on the upcoming Listener Feedback show.

Mur Lafferty released an interview I did with her for I Should Be Writing. Anyone that has followed my podcast knows how much I respect Mur and what she has done over the last five years, and it was an honor to be on her show.

On November 13th we’ll be having some online fun. Some podcasters are going to get together, virtually, for an evening of readings, music, and hopefully some comedy as well. We’re calling it TuacaCon, in honor of the liqueur many of us know and love called Tuaca. Please visit the Facebook event site for more information, and we hope to roll out the TuacaCon website soon. :-)
