That's a FIRST PLACE badge right there in the Global Thrillers Category at the 2022 CIBA's! Gutted that I couldn't make it to the Award Ceremony but my son had just been born four days prior, 'nuff said.
Now a 2022 GLOBAL THRILLER FINALIST, THE SEQUENCE, a fast-paced page-turner is up for the Grand Prize just down the street in Bellingham! #globalthriller #thrillerbooks #amwriting
Hugo Nominated for the Astounding Award for Best New Writer 2022 (presented by Dell Magazines)
Of the 187 nominees for this award, I placed 11th!
"The Sequence" has made the long list for the 2021 Chanticleer CIBAs CYGNUS book awards for science fiction along with 37 other authors!
This has me extremely excited to see how the next step into the Short List turns out. Fingers crossed! I believe in this book, it is a page-turning thriller you won't want to put down, and just wait for the sequel. It's close to completion and will have you on the edge of your seat I promise!
UPDATE: The Sequence was not selected for the CYGNUS awards' Short List, however the recognition of being Long Listed with my debut novel has me excited for the rest of the series.
Award Eligible Work for 2021
For work done in 2021, I have my first novel, The Sequence, that is eligible for nomination in the Hugo, Nebula, and Locus Awards, among others.
