Today this was announced.
Boneshaker has been nominated for a Hugo Award. And I honestly have no idea what to say.

So I’ll just post this, and then resume running around my apartment in utter hysterics: Thank you, thank you, thank you to everyone who voted to nominate me. I am honored, shocked, amazed, befuddled, overjoyed, thrilled, and humbled to be counted among the nominees; and congratulations to everyone else who made the list. It is a privilege and a delight to be included in such outstanding company.

Also, I must add a separate, serious, hearty bonus round of fist-bumps and high fives to my editor at Tor, Liz Gorinsky — who has also been nominated (Best Editor, Long Form). For the record, she is amazing. And I’m not just saying that because my first novel was her first acquisition, back in 2004. Or because she also edited Boneshaker. I’m saying it because she’s amazing.

Hot damn, y’all. What a long, strange trip it’s been…
