Many of you already know that my editor, Betsy Wollheim, was nominated for the Hugo Award this year. If for no other reason than I talked about it on the blog a couple times.
Guess what happened this Sunday night?
Thanks to everyone who voted for her, spread the word, or even quietly rooted for her from the sidelines.
The only downside? I wasn’t at the award ceremony. Because I’m an idiot.
You see, I *was* at Worldcon, and I assumed the Hugo Awards were going to be on Saturday night. So when Scott Kurtz and Kris Straub invited me out to Seattle to be on Kris and Scott’s Scott and Kris show on Sunday night, I said, “Sure.”
So while my editor was winning her Hugo. I was in Seattle, catching the tail end of PAX and doing…. well… this:
More details about the show, and a transcript of the Kris’s fanfic are here.
And I’m not saying the show wasn’t fun. Because obviously it was.
And I’m not saying that I didn’t enjoy getting to meet Johnathan Coulton out at PAX, because I did. I super did. And I found out he’s read my books, which gives me a happy.
And I’m not saying I didn’t enjoy being in Seattle, visiting the Geek Chic headquarters, having a great signing at the University Bookstore, and having some amazing Thai food.
I’m just saying I wish I could have been there to see the look on Betsy’s face.
More blogs are coming. Big announcements. Cool news.
