I’m deeply thrilled and honoured to report that Timefall has been selected as one of the finalists in the Young Adult category of the 2019 Aurora Awards, which are sponsored by the Canadian Science Fiction and Fantasy Association.
The Auroras essentially are Canadian “readers’ choice” awards, with numerous categories ranging from best novel, best YA, best short fiction, best cover art, and more. After books are initially nominated and then selected by the committee, ballots go out to all CSFFA members, who then have a couple of months to read and become acquainted with the works, in e-format. Voting will open up on August 3, and will close in mid-September, with the winners being announced at Can-Con 2019 in October.
Once again my sincerest thanks to Lorina Stephens of Five Rivers Publishing, and to Dr. Robert Runte for his insightful comments during the editing slog, which stretched out over couple of years.
And, finally, deepest thanks to the individual who saw merit in Timefall, and nominated it for this year’s Auroras!
