Today I found out my newest book is up for a Lambda Literary Award!

Last edited Tue Oct 31, 2017, 09:16 AM - Edit history (1)

I got this mail from my publisher:

I am very pleased to tell you that we will be nominating Runner for the 30th Annual Lambda Literary Awards.

https://www.lambdaliterary.org/awards/

Finalists will be announced in March 2018 and winners at the 30th Annual Lambda Literary Awards gala on Monday, June 4, 2018, at the NYU Skirball Center for the Performing Arts in New York City. We'll let you know if we happen to hear anything from the judges before then. But since every award organization operates differently, you may hear something from them first. (If you do, we'd love to know so we can track our nominations!)

You may be contacted by the Dreamspinner office for your permission to send out your information with the nomination if that is needed.

Best of luck!

Regards,

~Lynn

Edited to add for MLAA:

Runner by Parker Williams
 
Matt Bowers’s life ended at sixteen, when a vicious betrayal by someone who he should have been able to trust left him a shell of himself, fighting OCD and PTSD, living in constant fear and always running. When he buys a remote tract of land, he thinks he’s found the perfect place to hide from the world and attempt to establish some peace. For ten years he believes he’s found a measure of comfort, until the day a stranger begins to run on Matt’s road.

He returns every day, an unwelcome intrusion into Matt’s carefully structured life. Matt appeals to the local sheriff, who cannot help him since the jogger is doing nothing wrong. Gradually, after tentatively breaking the ice, Matt begins to accept the man’s presence—
But when the runner doesn’t show up one day, it throws Matt’s world into chaos and he must make the hardest decision of his life.

15. Phenomenal and will watch for it!

I have a collection of folks on DU who are great writers. It's on display daily (of course, my place is so small, I think the walls stay upright because of my books).
