There's a podcast interview with me here.

Did not win World Fantasy Award, meaning that, at the end of this awards season, my batting average is .250 (1 in 4). Which is not great for a ballplayer, but still above the Mendoza Line.

Thank you to everybody at WFC who took the time to tell me how much you liked The Goblin Emperor. I appreciate it deeply.

I got email from a reader the other day, wondering about other books like The Goblin Emperor (what [livejournal.com profile] matociquala has dubbed "committeepunk"). I'm kind of terrible at that game, so I did what any sensible person would do. I asked Twitter.

(And thank you very kindly to everyone who responded.)

Someone pointed out that if you merely want more books by me, there are several of them: Mélusine, The Virtu, The Mirador, Corambis, The Bone Key, Somewhere Beneath Those Waves Was Her Home, plus collaborations with [livejournal.com profile] matociquala, A Companion to Wolves, The Tempering of Men, An Apprentice to Elves (forthcoming in October). But there were also many suggestions of other books to try.

It occurred to me subsequently that other people might also like to have those suggestions, so I'm compiling that Twitter list here--also everyone should feel free to add more suggestions in the comments!

(N.b., just because a book is on the list does not mean I personally endorse it as being like The Goblin Emperor in whatever capacity a reader might be looking for. Many of these books I have not read. Some of them I haven't even heard of.)

Lloyd Alexander, Westmark
Lois McMaster Bujold, The Curse of Chalion
Angela Carter, Nights at the Circus
C. J. Cherryh, Foreigner
Zen Cho, Sorcerer to the Crown
Raymond E. Feist & Janny Wurtz, Daughter of the Empire
Neil Gaiman, The Ocean at the End of the Lane
M. C. A. Hogarth, Thief of Songs
N. K. Jemisin, The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms
Robin McKinley, The Blue Sword
Pat Rothfuss, The Slow Regard of Silent Things
Megan Whalen Turner, The Thief

Again, please feel free to play along at home and suggest more books!

The Goblin Emperor has now been nominated for all four major SF/F awards: Hugo, Locus, Nebula, World Fantasy.

It has won the Locus.

I don't actually know what to say about this, except, wow.

The Goblin Emperor is a Locus Awards finalist in the Fantasy Novel category. (!)

In other news, I will be attending part of Sasquan (Friday through Sunday--I just don't have the stamina for the whole thing.)

I will also be part of a thing at ALAAC: RUSA's Literary Tastes Breakfast. The program description tells me that I will see [livejournal.com profile] papersky there, WHICH IS AWESOME.

Further bulletins as events warrant.

The nominees for the 2015 Hugos have been announced. The Goblin Emperor is on the list for Best Novel.

I find this all very very weird. Good weird! But weird.

So, yes, I will be attending the Nebula Awards Weekend this year. I will be attending as Katherine Addison, given that Katherine Addison is the one nominated for the award, not Sarah Monette.

As you might expect, this is a rather peculiar feeling.

The Nebula nominees for 2014 have been announced.

The Goblin Emperor is one of the nominees for Best Novel (!!!!!).

Congratulations to everyone on the list!

The Goblin Emperor is the ALA's best Fantasy for Adult Readers on their 2015 genre fiction reading list.

This seems like a good time to link back (once again) to my Buy, Read, Talk post, because it bears repeating: if you want to support an author whose work you love, buy the book--or ask your library to buy the book, that's equally awesome--and tell people about it. I'm not talking specifically about me here (though obviously I'm not gonna say no), but about any author; this is the most widely applicable piece of advice I think I've ever given.

The Goblin Emperor is eligible for awards this year. That's all I'm going to say on the subject.
truepenny: artist's rendering of Sidneyia inexpectans (writing: airship)
I have the proofs for the mass market paperback of The Goblin Emperor. If you have noticed any typos in the hardback, now would be an absolutely SPLENDID time to let me know about them, since I need to turn my corrections in by December 2nd.

Blessings upon all your heads.

The Goblin Emperor has made it to the semifinals of Goodreads Choice Awards for Best Fantasy. (!!!)

Also, I have turned on the Ask the Author thing on the Author Profile page, so if you want to ask a question about The Goblin Emperor, click and ask, and I'll do my best.

The Goblin Emperor is now available as an audio book from Tantor Audio.

(I am SUPER EXCITED. This is the first time any of my books has been made into an audio book, and it's something I've lusted after for years.)

Please help spread the word, as I know many people find audio books fit better into their lives than text-on-paper/screen books.

The last of my guest posts is live at Bibliosanctum, on the court intrigues of the elves and the goblisn.

ICYMI, the master list of all the guest posts and interviews I did for The Goblin Emperor is here.

Also, thank you to everyone who invited me to write something for them!

Just a quick reminder that the Bitten by Books chat/AMA event avec moi (as Miss Piggy would say) is today, starting at noon CDT. If you RSVP, you get 25 entries in the giveaway contest: 5 copies of The Goblin Emperor up for grabs. (As I'm writing this at 7:57 a.m. CST, Bitten by Books' site seems to be down. Hopefully, this is a transitory problem.)

Please drop by the chat. I would love to see you all there!
