Award recognition for THRONE OF THE CRESCENT MOON

Somewhat overdue announcing some of this, but there have been several exciting bits of recognition for THRONE OF THE CRESCENT MOON recently:

- THRONE was listed on a slew of ‘Best of 2012′ lists by book bloggers, magazines, and websites, including io9, Barnes and Noble Book Clubs, Fantasy Faction, Fantasy Book Critic, LitReactor, BookwormBlues, BoookBanter, and a bunch of others that I’m churlishly forgetting here.

- Reddit Fantasy’s Debut of the Year for 2012 was…THRONE OF THE CRESCENT MOON! The Reddit Fantasy Awards come with a jaw-droppingly cool plaque, too

- Adoulla and company have also found their way onto the prestigious Locus Recommended Reading List for 2012.

- Last, but certainly not least: THRONE OF THE CRESCENT MOON has been nominated for the Nebula Award for Best Novel! Um, wow.

All of this recognition, combined with the kind attention that THRONE has already received, is thrilling. Writing can be a profoundly isolating gig. Knowing that other folks give a damn about the products of one’s lonely toil — that they’ve enjoyed it, even — makes a difference, at least to this half-witted, scruffy-looking word-herder.

    I have to say, I can’t remember the last time I saw a debut novel get such widespread good press from other authors.

    I was at Picocon in London at the weekend and it came up in a panel – every single panellist (and a few authors on the floor) were effusive in their praise.

    I’ve already read the sample and it’s next on the reading list. I would have read it earlier but I was plowing through the Wheel of Time.

    Prepare yourself…I’m sure there will be more accolades to come. You have a talent for rejuvenating fantasy.

    I’ve just started reading it today. I enjoy it in a way that I haven’t enjoyed fantasy books for a long time. I hope more books are to come!
