Nebula Award Nominee! Life Goal = Achieved

Wings of Sorrow and Bone is a Nebula finalist. I’m gobsmacked. I’m thrilled. I’m terrified.

You see, being a finalist like this has been a life goal of mine since I was a teenager. I even mentioned this on my old blog back in July 2012, during that difficult period after my first book didn’t sell and Clockwork Dagger was almost ready to go on submission to editors:

Within five years, I’d like to have a story or novel make the shortlist for a Hugo or Nebula. I’d also like to have a poem up for the Rhysling Award.

This week I confirmed that, for the second consecutive year, I have a poem nominated for the Rhysling.

Then this. The big one. The Nebula nomination. I actually made my goal a year before my deadline. How funny is that?! I guess the next goal should be to actually win a Hugo or Nebula at some point.

Wings of Sorrow and Bone is available at all online retailers for just 99-cents. Check it out–it seems people actually like it!?
