Holy shitballs, Batman! + Reminder!

Just a reminder that my Fade to Blue contest ends tonight at midnight, EST! Be sure to get your entries in by then!

Ok, so I sign into my Yahoo! account and I see I got a couple of emails. I click one open and at first I thought it was one of those "you won" spam emails because I thought I signed into a different account than by Bites one.

But then I took a closer look . . .

Holy schnikes! I've been nominated for a BBAW Award for Best Speculative Fiction Blog! OMG! I swear I read that email I don't know how many times just making sure I was reading it right and if it really was for me. OMFG!

At first I thought of my blog and didn't really think it was all that specfic-y. Then I started going through my posts so I could get my nomination requirements in and . . . yeah, pretty specfic-y. I read mostly horror and fantasy, comment on mostly horror and fantasy. It's a pretty big trend that I never noticed before but obviously my readers did! Yay! I mean, I always figured my blog was just a general YA book blog. Sure I slanted towards horror but I guess you are what you read, huh?

And the thing is, being that I was nominated, it means a bunch of people went and nominated me! They thought of my little blog!


Holy crapweasels that is so cool. So unexpected. Here I am, farting along, and BAM! Nod. That is just totally awesome. Thank you, thank you, thank you to everyone that nominated me! Now I can't wait to see how I do on the shortlist scheme of things! What an honor!
