First, a big congratulations to my friends who made the Nebula ballot – Vylar Kaftan, Chris Kastensmidt, Aliette de Bodard, J. Kathleen Cheney, Eric James Stone, Caroline Yoachim, and Mary Robinette Kowal. Good luck!
Also, congrats to Mike Rimar from my writing group The Stop-Watch Gang, who made his second pro sale. His story “Four Wizards and A Funeral” (what a great title!) will appear in Orson Scott Card’s Intergalactic Medicine Show in the near future. I hope it’s the same issue as mine (April 2011). Mike workshopped the story in the group, and I knew it would sell. Way to go, Mike!

Now that all of my stories for 2010 have been published, here’s a summary of where they appear. The links below go to subpages with links and reviews. It’s the most I’ve published in any single year, and the reviews for my stories have been very positive, so an excellent year overall.
“A Sweet Calling”, Clarkesworld #44, May 2010 (online)
“The Gold Silkworm”, Fantasy Magazine, December 13, 2010 (online)
“The Character of the Hound”, The Dragon and the Stars, DAW Books, May 2010 (print)

“The Paragon Lure”, Alembical 2, Paper Golem LLC, June 2010 (print)

As it’s also award nomination season, some readers may also find this list useful as a reading guide. I’ve received very positive reviews for “A Sweet Calling” (in the short story category) and “The Paragon Lure” (in the novella category). The former is readily available on the web, and the latter is available to SFWA members in the discussion forums. Or, contact me if you prefer a different format. Thank you for your consideration.
Note: Some works are eligible for certain awards due to geographical restrictions. “The Paragon Lure” is ineligible for the Prix Aurora Borealis Award, and “Cygnet’s Shadow” is ineligible for the Nebula or Hugo Awards.
