Congratulations, Nikki! Well Done!

At The 21st Annual Lambda Literary Awards Last Night

Winner of the award for best LGBT SCI-FI/FANTASY/HORROR:

* Turnskin, Nicole Kimberling, Blind Eye Books

Raised in a remote farming community, Tom Fletcher knows little of his Shifter heritage and less about the dangerous lives that others of his kind lead in the city of Riverside. For Tom the big city is a daydream of opening nights and bright theater lights.

But when Tom meets Cloud Coldmoon-infamous and handsome heir to a criminal syndicate- everything changes. Suddenly suspected of murder, Tom must flee to the only city where his kind are common.

Filled with shapeshifters, con men, mobsters and ruled by the vengeful Coldmoon Family, Riverside is as perilous as it is alluring. Tom seeks refuge in the Turnskin Theartre, where his shape-changing skills can be put to good use on and off the stage.

Here he has a chance to fulfill his dreams of stardom and romance, but only if he can stay one step ahead of police and criminals alike, otherwise the next shape he takes could be his last.

Nikki is a superb writer, fellow classmate of the 2004 Clarion workshop and editor at Blind Eye Books, which published my story "Under Suspicion" in their anthology Tangle Girls. kimnik reveals her surprise at winning here.

Congratulations, Nikki, on your well-deserved award. And in the "Boy It Has To Be Tough To Be You" Category, it's such a shame you had to beat out another Blind Eye Books nominee: The Archer's Heart, Astrid Amara, Blind Eye Books.

Now we just need pictures from the awards ceremony. (grin)
