Last Flight of the Dragon

The Dragon Award is closing its nominations in 24 hours ....

I suggest you get on it.

At this point, I don't care if you vote for me, one way or another. I just want them to have tons of votes. Obviously, I'd like a nomination. But I'd also like to win the lottery.

You want me to be blatantly honest? Sure. Let's do that.

Do I think it's possible for me to get a nomination? Sure. Definitely.

Is it PROBABLE? I wouldn't bet against it. Heck. Honor at Stake came out of nowhere. I didn't expect that to go anywhere.

Is it possible for me to get a WIN?

..... That has so many factors, I'm not even going to try to do the math on it.

But, as my father always says, "If you don't ask, you don't get."

So, I'm asking that, if you have the genre slot open on the ballot, plug me in there somewhere. If you wouldn't mind.

And if you have something else for best Horror / fantasy / apocalyptic ... then what am I going to do? Complain?

Talking about the Dragon awards gives me an excuse to talk about books. It is, in part, PR. In some cases, it gives me an excuse to talk about books I've already reviewed, or merely want to read. Without the Dragons, I'm not sure I would have gotten to Another Girl, Another Planet until well into next year. (Yes, next year. My reading speed has suffered due to my work schedule.)

It's not like I have a lot of excuses left. People keep taking those excuses away from me.

Be well all.

Illegitimi non carborundum.
