Awards for Science Fiction and Fantasy Writing
It’s time for book bloggers, podcasters, and booktubers to nominate their favorite science fiction and fantasy books and short stories published in 2015. There are three categories for the 2015 awards:
1) Shorter story (under 40,000 words/160 paperback pages)
2) Traditionally published novel
3) Small press / self-published novel
Nominations must be received by February 14th, 11:59PM US Pacific time.
Here are the steps required to nominate a story (A, B, and C are required. D, E, and F are optional):
A) Establish your credentials. Make a comment to this blog post, with links to three reviews posted in 2015 on your blog, podcast, or booktube channel. If you have a multi-topic podcast/video, please give us time references.
B) Post on your blog (or podcast/booktube channel) nominating a story and explaining why you think it’s the best.
C) As a REPLY TO YOUR CREDENTIALS COMMENT, post the following:
D) If we receive too few nominations in one of our categories, we may combine two (or all three) of our categories, so let us know which of your three nominations you consider #1, #2, and #3. If you do not specify, then your nomination will be your choice for the surviving category.
E) You may change your vote at any time before the deadline. To change your vote, simply repeat steps B and C above, and remember to REPLY TO YOUR CREDENTIALS COMMENT.
F) Spread the word to other book bloggers, podcasters, and booktubers!
