Okay, here's an actual semi-coherent blog post.

So it looks like I'm not imagining this whole thing and I really do have two Hugo nominations.

!!!!!!!!!!!

The Murderbot Diaries: All Systems Red is a finalist in Best Novella

AND

The Books of the Raksura is a finalist in Best Series

I have been absolutely out of my mind since I found out last Friday. I got the emails early Friday morning, and ran downstairs to show my husband the Best Novella nomination before I realized there was a second email for Best Series. I was so hopeful and so not expecting that.


All Systems Red
Thanks so much to my agent Jennifer Jackson, to my editor Lee Harris and to Irene Gallo at Tor.com and cover artist Jaime Jones, and Kevin R. Free who narrated the audiobook version. I didn't expect all this to happen for my little robot story.

The Books of the Raksura
(The Cloud Roads, The Serpent Sea, The Siren Depths, Stories of the Raksura I: the Falling World & The Tale of Indigo and Cloud, Stories of the Raksura II: the Dead City & the Dark Earth Below, The Edge of Worlds, and The Harbors of the Sun)

The only previous award any of the Books of the Raksura have gotten is Matthew Stewart's Chesley Award for Best Paperback Cover for The Cloud Roads. I've worked on this series for eight years, and the reader reaction to it has been everything I would have wanted. This award recognition for Best Series feels like an impossible dream that somehow came true.

The Books of the Raksura brought my career back from the dead, and I want to thank my agent, Jennifer Jackson, my editors at Night Shade Jeremy Lassen and Janna Silverstein, and at Skyhorse Cory Allyn and at Start Jarred Weisfield. And Christopher Kipiniak, who is the voice of the Raksura in the audiobooks. And cover artists Matthew Stewart, Steve Argyle, and Yukari Masuike. And the readers, fanfic artists, and fanfic writers who recommended the books to their friends and kept the series alive.


Congrats to all the nominees! https://www.tor.com/2018/03/31/2018-hugo-award-finalists-announced/
