Tis the Season

Awards season, that is. Now that 2012 has passed into honored and unlamented history — happy New Year, everybody — people are looking back and thinking about what was best in the year, what was worst, and everything in between. And because I keep getting asked about it, here’s what I’ve got that’s eligible for […]

So, yeah. This happened.

Nebula nomination number three, for The Kingdom of Gods. I found out on Friday, if you’re wondering why I’m so calm about this; had time to go out and celebrate with friends, recover from the hangover, and cool down over the last few days. But I’m still kinda ¡holyshit! about it, just more quietly so. […]

Give my editor a Hugo

Or a Nebula. Or something. ‘Cause she should get one. AS I SHALL PROVE. This is my editor. (Image taken from GalleyCat.) Isn’t she cute? Her name is Devi Pillai, of Orbit Books. She’s not only cute, she’s pretty badass. Here’s some stuff she’s edited — other than, y’know, my books. The Way of Shadows, […]

World Fantasy 2011

Heading off tomorrow, on Launch Day — I’m launching from the ground and flying to San Diego! GET IT? Launching — um, yeah, OK. Anyway, while I’m there I’ll be doing a little of this and a little of that. Friday: 8:00 PM: I’ll be at the mass autographing. Saturday, 11:30 AM: Reading from The […]

Locus Roundtable on, er, Me

Locus, that nice magazine that just gave me a big shiny award, also does other cool things. Who knew? Like, they have a series called Roundtables, in which they ask a bunch of writers, reviewers, and other literary folk to chat about a particular work or topic. And — starting before the award, actually — […]

Nebula Awards Interview

I didn’t win at the Nebs this year, but they’re the gift that keeps on giving nevertheless. SFWA’s got a lovely interview posted with me that I did while I was in France. An excerpt: In writing Book One, what was the hardest part? The easiest? Probably the political intrigue was hardest, because it interested […]



…and then it hits me.

I’ve been nominated or shortlisted for (or won) nine major awards. Nine. Awards. Nine. The Hugo (Nominee) The Tiptree (Shortlist) The Prix Imaginales (Nominee) Gemmell Morningstar Award (Finalist) Locus Awards (Finalist) Nebula Award (Nominee) Goodreads Readers’ Choice Awards (Nominee) Romantic Times Book Reviews Award, Fantasy (Winner!) Crawford Award (Shortlist) ::bogglety:: I kinda don’t know what […]

Awards Update

The award nominations keep coming for The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms… wow. I’ve been in a perpetual state of “Huhwha?” for the last few weeks. The new nomination is for the Prix des Imaginales, which I’ll find out about in a few weeks when I go to the Imaginales Festival in France. It’s for Best Translation, […]


Ya’ll, The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms is a Hugo nominee as well as a Nebula nominee this year. And you know what that means. That’s right. It’s Sparkly Pink Text time. HELL TO THE YEAH. I have to admit, I half-expected the Nebula. Enough people had the book on their proto-awards lists that I felt I […]
