First I should admit that I have no idea how reddit works, nor do I know how these awards work, or anything else. However, it has been made known to me that Bookworm Blues has been nominated for Best Fantasy Site on r/Fantasy. That’s SO COOL. I don’t think I have a shot in hell of winning or getting anywhere with it, but that’s okay. I’ve been nominated, and I’m pretty proud of that. I mean, honestly, I’m not a fool. I know this site is one of the quietest and less popular ones online, so I get thrilled about whatever bones get thrown my direction. (No, I’m not being all poor Sarah over here. I’m being realistic.)
Author Michael J. Sullivan says some nice things about me and my site:
Sarah Chorn does an amazing job with Bookworm Blues – She is a dark horse nominee against some amazing heavy weights but I throw my full support (such that it is behind her). I think she is the model for how to write good reviews. She is fair, and even when critical is respectful of the authors and readers who might have a differing opinion. She’s also persevered through some incredibly difficult personal challenges in regards to health issues for herself and the ability to carry her child to full term. I’m happy to announce that both mom and daughter are doing well.
So, if you have any clue how reddit works then go do whatever you do over there to show me some love. I’m assuming you click the “up” arrow once you dig through the thread and find my nomination. I’m not sure. That’s what I did. I’m guessing that means something to someone.
Regardless, thanks for the nomination and the kind words. It’s incredibly flattering.
It was a well deserved nomination…keep doing such good work and I’m sure that in the future you’ll be the leading contender rather than the dark horse.
