Just a quick, dashing-between-things post to say UnConventional in Auckland has been fabulous. Thank you to the con organisers and to all my wonderful, welcoming fellow writers and fans in the NZ Specfic community… Trudi Canavan, Helen Lowe, Russell Kirkpatrick, and so many others, I had the best time thanks to you all.
The award news: ‘Samiha’s Song’ took away the prize for Best Novel. ‘Oracle’s Fire’ took away the one for Best Artwork. I lost it when accepting the spikiest statue in fandom and became incoherent and teary.
I promise a real post about this, complete with descriptions and photos, when I return home and have a moment to stick my brain back together. In the meantime… I’m just happy.
