More Beautiful Than Death nominated for Scribe Award

I’m happy to share the news that the judging panel of The International Association of Media Tie-In Writers has nominated my Star Trek (Kelvin Universe) novel MORE BEAUTIFUL THAN DEATH for a Scribe Award in the Best Original Novel – Speculative category.

This is always a hotly contested category, featuring excellent works by some of the industry’s best tie-in novelists. This year is no different.

In addition to works by James Lovegrove and Greg Keyes, my book shares space in that category with two other Star Trek novels, both written by very talented friends of mine: Star Trek: DiscoveryDIE STANDING by John Jackson Miller and Star Trek: AGENTS OF INFLUENCE by Dayton Ward.

This really is a case of “it’s an honor just to be nominated.”

This is my 8th nomination in the Scribe Awards and my 7th in the Best Original Novel – Speculative category.

I’ve won the Scribe Award twice: Best Original Novel – General for 24: ROGUE, and Best Original Novel – Speculative for Star Trek: TNGCOLLATERAL DAMAGE.

Other friends of mine on this year’s list of Scribe Awards finalists include Monica Valentinelli and Christie Golden (in the Short Fiction category), Mike Johnson (Graphic Novel), James Swallow (Best Original Novel – General), and Matt Forbeck (in the YA/MG category).

Collateral Damage wins a Scribe Award

I’m pleased to share that my Star Trek: The Next Generation novel Collateral Damage has won a Scribe Award in the category of Best Original Novel – Speculative Fiction. It shares the win in a tie vote with the Batman novel The Court of Owls, written by my good friend Greg Cox.

The Scribe Awards are bestowed annually by the International Association of Media Tie-in Writers (IAMTW) to recognize excellence in the field of media tie-in publishing.

It’s an honor to share this award with my longtime friend Greg. I want to thank my editor on Collateral Damage, Margaret Clark, for her help in shaping the book; my agent Lucienne Diver for shepherding the business side of my work; the judges and organizers of the Scribe Awards; and my readers most of all.

Collateral Damage is my sixth work to be nominated for a Scribe Award, and my second title to win an award (my novel 24: ROGUE won the award for Best Original Novel – General Fiction in 2016). Here’s hoping it won’t be the last.
