No Nebula this year

I didn’t win, alas. That said, if I gotta lose, losing to Connie Willis is the way to go, lemme tell you. And I had a great time at Nebula Weekend, though I was only there for Saturday and Sunday (it started Thursday). I have pictures, but they came out very dark for some reason, so I won’t post them. (If anyone was there and has better pics, please send them to me!)

And while I’m aware that “it’s an honor to be nominated” is a cliche, that really is the case here. The other authors in the Best Novel category were no shakes, and I know and/or am friends with several of them, so there was really no way I could be disappointed. And given that this was my first novel, and I’ve got lots more in me, well — there’s always next year.

So for the winners: congratulations! And my fellow nominees who didn’t win, I’m thrilled and humbled to be among you. Let’s all celebrate!

  1. Hello NK!

    I have fallen in love with your writing. I am reading the Hundred Thousand Kingdoms and bought both the book and audiobook. Your story telling is wonderful and the story itself is mysterous and very compelling on many different levels.

    Look forward to more of your work!


  2. Congrats again!

    I do think it is an honor to be nominated. Glad you had a great time.

  3. Maybe they’re just waiting to give you the award for the full trilogy, a la the Lord of the Rings movies? On that note, really looking forward to KOTG.

    I’m sure that with the amazing writing skills I witnessed in that fascinating book that it’s really just a question of time before you win one Nebula…or many!
