On Writing Awards

Two days ago I learned that City Without End is a finalist for an award, the 2010 Endeavour. It’s given out for a “distinguished Science Fiction or Fantasy Book written by a Pacific Northwest Author.”

Very pleased, of course. I think City Without End is the strongest book in the quartet of which it is a part. (The Entire and The Rose.) And it has a hell of a cover, you must admit Stephan Martiniere received a Silver Spectrum award for it.

Other nominees are:

  • David Marusek’s Mind Over Ship
  • Patricia Briggs’s Hunting Ground
  • Cat Rambo’s Eyes Like Sky and Coal and Moonlight
  • Camille Alexa’s Pushing the Sky

The thing about awards? You just can’t take them too seriously. Read More…

Win a Free Book

For the launch of my new blogging website, I’ll have a drawing for copies of The Entire and The Rose books. You can request one of the following three books: Bright of the Sky, A World Too Near or City Without End (but not the fourth and final book.)

The three winners will be announced on my blog April 23. Read More…

More Fine Design from Pyr

I keep thanking the writing gods for Pyr’s superb work–especially art direction–for “The Entire and The Rose” series. Incredibly beautiful books. You can see more of Pyr’s cover art and books here.

So this is the new trade paper version of Book Three of the series, City Without End, shipping on January 25. Cover art by the amazing Stephan Martiniere.

And although this cover looks like a celebration, as in perhaps a triumph over all odds, actually there’s much more to come with the fourth and final volume, Prince of Storms (Also a January 2010 release).
