Finally, I can tell people about this! The ever-fabulous Lawrence M. Schoen is my client, and he's nominated for the John W. Campbell Award for Best New Writer! Yes, he is a bit of a dark horse nominee, but that still doesn't make me any less proud of him! I've known about the nomination since my birthday, but wasn't allowed to say anything until the announcements went official. And as I told Lawrence, "That's the best birthday present you could have given me." =)

Congrats to you both. :)

Sam said...

Whhoooo hoo! Congrats!!

Just a question - Does Lawrence have two agents? I used to be with Firebrand, and I remember him there. Since I write in two completely different genres, this kind of interets me.

Jodi Meadows said...

Woo! Awesome news!

Jenny Rappaport said...

Yep, he has two different agents Nadia Cornier of Firebrand handles his YA fiction, and I deal with the adult stuff.

Sam said...

Thanks for answering my question - I sent the same question into Miss Snark's blog ages ago, but it never got answered!

resurrectedwarrior said...

Oooh! That's great, Jenny!

*grabs pom-poms* Go Lawrence! Go Jenny! Go Lawrence! Go Jenny!

Okay, two things. First, I read Neil Gaiman's "How to Talk to Girls at Parties" and it is awesome. It was the first of his work that I'd ever read, but it won't be the last. Second, I'm so glad to see that Brandon Sanderson has been nominated for that Campbell award. I actually haven't read his novel yet but I've been to his blog a time or two and he seems really neat. I like when nice people get cool stuff!

John Joseph said...

How does Lawrence qualify for the Campbell? I'd've thought his eligibility ran out long ago. Looks like he's got pro publications dating back to 2000.

Nathalie Mallet said...

WoW! Congratulations to you both.

David said...

congrats--way to go!

btw, I see that Delany's book on writing got a nomination as well. That book is awesome, well worth checking out. . .

Spencer said...

I'm glad B.Sanderson was nominated again. And congrats to both you and the Klingon.

Kathie said...

Congratulations Jenny and Lawrence. What a thrill for you both. This period between nominations and awards must be the best part--whether you win or not.

Alyssa Goodnight said...

Congratulations to both of you! How exciting!

John B said...

Congratulations! That's kickin.
