Several debut novels that I announced made the Gaylactic Spectrum Awards list, and they are:

Hi Tia - turns out we mis-spelled Lisa Shearin's name in the announcement. Can you correct it above, please. Sorry for the inconvenience.

That's what I get for cutting and pasting! Thanks for pointing it out and I'll be more careful next time.

Loved the books by Patrick Rothfuss and Lisa Shearin. I would choose Patrick Rothfuss, if I was forced to choose.

Brilliant for the readers. :)

I hope Lisa Shearin wins. :-) Of course, that's the only book on the list that I've read, so I might be a bit biased. ;-)
