Goodreads Choice Awards

So, voting on the first round of the Goodreads Choice Awards happened last week. The nominees–or maybe the suggested votes? Since you could write in a qualifying book if it didn’t appear in the list?–didn’t include Ancillary Justice, but I did see some folks say they’d written it in. “Wow,” I thought, “that’s pretty cool, that some people liked it that much.” And it put a nice shine on my weekend.

I see this morning that it got enough write-in votes to be a nominee this round. I’m not gonna lie, that pleases me a great deal.

I’m not posting to exhort anyone to go vote for Ancillary Justice. If you’re a Goodreads member and you care about the voting, you’ll presumably vote for your favorite among the nominees this round. Obviously I’d love for that to be AJ, cause like a lot of writers I’m vain that way. But it might not be, and I can’t help but notice there are lots of great choices there, some of them by people I admire and even like personally. So, if you’re going to vote, by all means do, cast your vote for the book of your choice.

No, I’m actually posting to thank you guys–I don’t know who all of you are, and probably most of you won’t read this, but just in case–I’m honored and so very pleased that you liked Ancillary Justice enough to write it in. That honestly means a lot to me.

    I am glad it worked. I loved Ancillary Justice so much I posted my review on Google+ and encouraged other people to write in Ancillary Justice. I’m sure I wasn’t the only one nor the first.

    Anyway you have at at least one vote in the next round!

    Looking forward to your sequel when it comes out.

      Thank you so much! I can’t tell you how much just knowing you enjoyed it so much means to me. It’s really the best thing a writer could ask for.

    I’m one of the people who wrote in Ancillary Justice. There was no question at all about what I’d vote for – it was such a standout book!
    I’m just so happy that other people seem to agree. I really hope your book wins (even though, all things considered, it’s not a proper award or anything) because it was a most excellent science fiction novel.
    Can’t wait for the next one.

      By that I mean that I hope you win All The Awards – not only the Goodreads Choice. 😉

      Gosh, thank you so much! It’s so amazing, I mean, I worked hard to make it the best that I could, but it’s different when it’s out in the world, and it’s an incredible experience to have other people respond positively. 😀

    Reading Ancillary Justice right now. I couldn’t vote for it, because I’m not finished, but it’s got me turning the pages so far!
