Lockstep wins 2015 Aurora Award
I share this award with Charles de Lint--the vote was a tie!
Yesterday we held the 35th Annual Aurora Award ceremony, at Canvention here in Toronto. I was up in the Best Young Adult Novel category, along with a field of impressive peers. My novel Lockstep tied with Charles de Lint's Out of This World to win in the Young Adult category.
I'm thrilled and honoured to be in the company of such fine writers. I'm also delighted to have won in the Young Adult category, as this seals an Aurora win for me in each of the Short Story, Novel, and YA Novel classes.
It's an early Christmas present, and I'm grateful to everyone who contributed to the awards, and in particular the Aurora Committee who have worked so diligently for 35(!) years now to bring this award to the Canadian readership.
