Awards Nomination Season: the 2018 Round Up

We love awards! As a multi-genre publisher, we try to nominate our authors for as many awards as we can to help their careers along. For fan-based awards we rely on you, our fans who are members of organizations like the CFFSA and SFWA, to nominate your favourites.  To help you sort out eligibility, here’s a list of everything we’ve published this year, with the exception of reprints and novel exerpts, sorted by genre.  Stories that overlap genres may be listed more than once.

If you are interested in receiving complimentary review copies of any of these works, please fill out the form at the bottom of the page, and don’t forget to put us down for consideration in your respective circles!
