Queen of Monsters is up for an award!

Queen of Monsters, the first book in my new series, is a finalist for the Whitney awards in the “Adult Speculative” category. (Adult as in… not for Middle Grade or YA. Not… you know, the other common usage for “adult.”) Perennial favorite Brandon Sanderson is competing in two different categories this year, so hey… there’s a chance! The four other finalists for the category are by some fantastic authors — Melissa McShane, John M. Olsen, DJ Butler, and Charlie Holmberg.

Anyway, you can check out more information at the Whitney Award nominees & finalists page. And if you’ve already read Queen of Monsters and Sorcerer of the Ancient Depths, I will happily recommend books by all four of the other authors. Like I said, they are fantastic.
