Good news! My book THE SWAN RIDERS had been long-listed for a Locus Award. I've been reading Locus Magazine since I was a tiny little geek looped up on Star Trek, and so I am well pleased!
Public voting moves books from the long list to the short list. Anyone who wanted to cast a vote my way, could do that here. (I'm in the YA novel category.) Also, it's a killer list if you're just looking for something to read.
