First, thank you to everyone who nominated and voted for my work in the most recent New Blood Awards event. I also wish to mention in particular my beta reader, Breathesgirl whose countless hours and commentary kept my writing on track and American Android who created the image of my stories.
To everyone – I am thankful that my efforts entertained you.
The premise for these awards was to recognize new writers to the Southern Vampire/True Blood genre. Because this is the first year, those eligible for consideration included those authors who started publishing in 2014 to present. There has been some worry that since the original author stopped the series and the television show has ended that the writing for these characters would wane.
I present to you the proof that stories of this fandom’s demise are premature. These are the authors nominated as ‘New Blood’ in our genre, and whose wonderful stories recommended them for inclusion in this year’s contest.
