Hi, folks! Despite my raging imposter syndrome, my rampant perfectionism, and the fact that I’m a very young writer who’s still learning and growing and rather nervous about putting myself out there, I’ve decided to do a post of my published writings from 2017 that are eligible to be nominated for literary awards! I care deeply about the work I’m doing and I’d love for my words to reach more people through this post.
-Eligible for young adult/middle grade, fantasy, first novel, and small press book awards, as well as the Ursa Major, Cóyotl, and Leo Literary Awards within the furry fandom.
“The Moon Fox”: My first professional, SFWA-qualifying sale!
“When Pigs Fly”, ROAR Volume 8
“Hungry,” Fossil Lake IV: Sharkasaurus!
“A Fate Purse than Death,” The Supreme Archvillain Election
-These stories are eligible for the usual fantasy/science fiction short story awards. “The Moon Fox” is also eligible for professional debut awards, such as the John W. Campbell Award for Best New Writer. “The Moon Fox,” “When Pigs Fly,” and “Hungry” are also eligible for the Ursa Major, Cóyotl, and Leo Literary Awards.
“What Doesn’t Kill You,” Werewolves Versus Fascism
-In addition to general and speculative poetry awards, “What Doesn’t Kill You” is eligible for the Leo Literary Awards.
“Bite Marks,” Fossil Lake IV: Sharkasaurus!
Thank you so much for your time! I look forward to writing more and better in 2018, and to reading YOUR words, too!

How do you nominate? Must you read on line?

Great question, Becky! Different awards have different rules. Mist is eligible in the Best Young Adult/Middle Grade Novel category of the Dragon Award, and anybody can nominate it for this award, as long as you have an email address! You can do that at this page: http://application.dragoncon.org/dc_fan_awards_nominations.php If you have any questions about how to do it, let me know! 🙂
Also, anyone can nominate Mist or the three eligible short stories I mentioned above for the Ursa Major Award! I can show you how to nominate for that one once the nominations open up. Thank you so much for your support! ❤
