So, I got a story published last year, and I quite like it. I hope you read it and liked it, too. I hope you read it and liked it so much that you’d consider nominating “Oh Give Me A Home” for a Hugo Award for Best Novelette. I hope that you’d also consider nominating me for the John W. Campbell award for Best New Writer, ’cause my little tale of family, farming, and miniaturized bison now makes me eligible for the glory that is the Campbell Diadem (with matching cheese board). (Note: I’ve submitted “Oh Give Me A Home” to the 2014 Campbellian Anthology, so check back here on January 15th for a link. EDIT: here it is!)

And now back to work.
