First of all, you may have noticed that both this blog and the blog at my main site are now equipped with a widget where you can sign up for my e-mail newsletter. Because received marketing wisdom says that an e-mail newsletter is an absolute must for every serious indie writer.
So sign up for the newsletter, if you would like to be informed about new releases and special promotions. You can sign up at the sidebar widget or via the newsletter tab in the main menu.
For more, read the announcement at my main blog. And don’t worry, your e-mail address is safe with me. I won’t spam you.
What is more, I’ve also been informed that self-published work is eligible for the Hugo Awards. So here’s a list which works of mine are eligible:
Best novelette category:
Flying Bombs, a dieselpunk novelette featuring the Silencer, a villain calling himself the Master of the Air and the largest Zeppelin ever built. I’m quite fond of this story and it took a long time to find a market.
Best short story category:
Whaler, which is short story about space whales and the men who hunt them. Yes, I know that you’re groaning, but a space whale story did win the Nebula Award for best novelette last year. And mine has a twist.
Letters from the Dark Side is epistolary fiction in the style of a True Confessions magazine. It’s theoretically a collection, though of short story length according to the Hugo rules.
Rites of Passage is not Hugo eligible by the way, because it has been previously published at a time when I didn’t even know that the story was eligible for anything.
Theorectically, I should be eligible for the best fan writer Hugo as well for the posts made at this and my main blog.
If you want to read one of the eligible stories for awards or nomination purposes, drop me an e-mail and I’ll send you a copy in the format of your choice.
