Interview with Jayne Barnard

I have had the honour to be interviewed by Jayne Barnard, the author of the incredible Maddie Hatter young adult novels, as part of her series interviewing Prix-Aurora Award nominees. The interview can be found on her website, Clockworks and Crime. Jayne Barnard’s latest novel, Maddie Hatter and the Timely Taffeta, along with the other novels in the series, can be found where all great books are sold.

Aurora Award Voting

The Prix-Aurora Award voting ends in a week, folks. Saturday, September 8, 2018 is the deadline. Still time to vote for your favorite stories in a variety of categories, including Best Short Fiction where my own story, Rose’s Arm (published by Laksa Media in the anthology entitled Where the Stars Rise), is nominated under.

For all those who nominated my story for an Aurora Award, I want to say a humble and grateful thank-you. You have no idea what this nomination means to me as an author and creator, even if it doesn’t win.

So visit the Prix Aurora Award website (linked) and vote. If you haven’t already gotten your membership to the CSFFA, do it now. It only costs $10.00 and gets you the author package which includes a multitude of nominated stories and novels. Pretty great deal for $10.00.
