Kitschies nomination for “Semiosis” 
6th-Mar-2019 09:39 am
Kitschies TentaclesSemiosis has been nominated for the Kitschies Golden Tentacle Award. I am honored — and awed by the other nominees. Perhaps it will impress the judges that the cover art of my book features genuine tentacles.

The Kitschies, a British award, describes itself as a way to reward “the year’s most progressive, intelligent and entertaining fiction that contain elements of the speculative or fantastic.” The Golden Tentacle Award is for debut authors, and the full list of nominees are:

Children Of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi (Pan MacMillan)
Frankenstein In Baghdad by Ahmed Saadawi (Oneworld)
Semiosis by Sue Burke (Harper Voyager)
Sweet Fruit, Sour Land by Rebecca Ley (Sandstone Press)
The Poppy Way by R.F. Kuang (Harper Voyager)

Other Kitschies award categories are Red Tentacle for the best novel, Inky Tentacle for the best cover art, Invisible Tentacle for the best natively digital fiction, and Black Tentacle awarded at the judges' discretion.

The winners will be announced at an awards ceremony in London on April 15.

Congratulations, that's exciting! I somewhat recently read your book and loved it. I love the idea of plants as not only sentient but intelligent. The nomination is well deserved in my opinion. While I haven't read any of the others (Children of Blood and Bone is on my TBR) I think it would also be well-deserved win. Good luck, and either way, Heck Yeah!!!!
