Award Nomination

I found out yesterday that my short story “Pyg the Tinker” was nominated for a Write Well Award. I have no idea when I’ll find out whether I won but I am super excited. If I win, my story will be included in a print anthology that is actually available from retailers.

“Pyg the Tinker” can still be read here. This is my steampunk take on the myth of Pygmalion and Galatea. (Not Pygmalion by George Bernard Shaw).

Holy Schnikes! Pushcart Nomination

Holy schnikes doesn’t really sound like a┬áverbose title that would be written by a Pushcart Prize nominee, but it is.

That’s right, I was notified tonight that my story, “She Knit”, which was published in the Wild Horses: Women on Fire 2015 edition was nominated for a Pushcart Prize.

I know that thousands of stories, most of which probably far outshine mine, were nominated and I honestly think I have a 0% chance of winning, but I am incredibly excited to be nominated.

I’m still reeling that anyone found my writing publishable, so learning that an editor thought I was one of their six best pieces of the year totally makes my day.

It’ll be months yet until I learn that I for sure didn’t win, in the meantime, I’ll just be telling everyone I know.

Oh yeah, and I should probably do my NaNoWriMo words for the day.
