Sir Julius Vogel Award shortlist 2013: EMPIRE STATE for Best Novel and Best New Talent nomination

I’m chuffed to bits to announce that I’ve been nominated for the Sir Julius Vogel Awards this year in two categories: Empire State is in the shortlist for Best New Novel, and I’m in the shortlist for Best New Talent.

The full list of nominations can be found here. My congratulations to everyone on the ballot!

The Sir Julius Vogel Awards are given out by the Science Fiction and Fantasy Association of New Zealand; eligible voters are members of SFFANZ or Au Contraire, the NZ national science fiction convention, which is being held on 12-14th July in Wellington.

My thanks to everyone who nominated me! Not a bad way to start the day, really…
