Oh, WOW. I just learned that TRIPTYCH has been nominated for a CBC Bookie award. Thank you!
About the Bookies:
Last year, CBC Books introduced the CBC Bookie Awards, the “people’s choice” of Canadian literary awards. Readers across the country cast their votes for their favourite science fiction, mystery books, graphic novels, literary fiction, short story collections and more. It’s one year later, and the Bookies are back and bigger than ever!
The finalists were chosen by CBC’s book-loving producers at CBC Books, Canada Reads, Writers & Company, The Next Chapter and more, with consideration given to your recommendations online. The finalists represent our favourite Canadian reads (with the exception of the two new International categories) published between January 1, 2011, and December 31, 2011.
This is a Reader’s Choice award, so it means a lot of people had to have told the CBC about TRIPTYCH. I cannot express how touched that makes me, and how pleased I am that people considered my novel worth nominating.
I think it’s absolutely brilliant that a small press from Alberta has a book on a major Canada-wide award poll. Please, share this webpage, and vote for your favourite books of 2011, no matter which ones they are. Show the world how much we Canadians support our authors.
You can vote once per day, every day up until March 31st at Midnight.
