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.
