Good news, everyone: last Thursday my work was nominated in two categories for the next Scribe Awards, which are presented annually by the International Association of Media Tie-in Writers (or IAMTW).
Nominated in the category of Best Original Novel – General Fiction was my action-thriller 24: Rogue. In the category of Best Original Novel – Speculative Fiction, I received a nomination for Star Trek: Seekers #3 – Long Shot. These constitute my fourth and fifth nominations for Scribe Awards.
