The Aurora Award Nominess for 2014 were announced recently. Amid all the fantastic nominations is one that made me particularly happy. Matt Moore has been nominated for the Ottawa ChiSeries in the category of Best Fan Organizational, along with ChiSeries Toronto and Winnipeg. Matt has put in a ton of work this past year getting it up and running and I’ve had the pleasure of helping out as book wench. This is a testament to the effort he has put into putting on a great series for the Ottawa community and its success. Congrats Matt! And congrats to all the other nominees (there are some great names, awesome works and wonderful people in there).
And as to the other exciting news… I came home from my vacation in Punta Cana this weekend to learn that my story, Stolen Cargo, won Witty Bard Publishing‘s recent steampunk competition. The anthology of the six winning stories will be published as an ebook this Saturday, so stayed tuned for a link. 😀
