I’m actually pretty surprised by this. I did not see this one coming. I’m very honored, and I hope to win. Chances are against me, because there is a lot of great competition this year. Seriously, check out who I’m up against. I’m glad to have made it this far, and I hope to make it to the final ballot. I even hope to win in my category, although I don’t think it will happen. I’m not in this to win awards, but recognition is nice, and this has filled my belly with LSD butterflies. Thank you to all of my readers and all fans of bizarro. Also, thank you to Kevin Strange and StrangeHouse Books, who published TOQT, and to D.F. Noble, who edited it. Please take the time to check out the announcement. Just to see my name among these amazing writers is blowing my mind.
