Had a lovely birthday gift on Sunday when I found out that Until Forgiveness Comes is on the Million Writers Award list of 2008’s notable fiction. As previously stated, this award seeks to highlight and celebrate online fiction in all genres, not just SF/F. I join 3 of my fellow Altered Fluidians on the list — 2 others from Strange Horizons! SH obviously liked us last year. Also, fellow Black Bean Meghan McCarron. And a large number of writers I am pleased to call my friends. I know tons of talented people!
On May 15th a shorter list of 10 stories (picked by the award administrator) will battle it out to see who can claim best story of the year. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that I will be on that list.
Even if I’m not, I am super, super excited to be on the long list. Yay!
