The Obligatory Award Eligibility Post 2014 Edition

Okay, so let's talk about happier stuff for awhile!

We're sliding into the end of the year and the award eligibility posts are going up, if any of you are voters in such beasts and so inclined. So, without further ado, here's the stuff I've written this year that might qualify for something!

Flash Fiction:

Godmother - self-published, approx 600 words (as T. Kingfisher)

Short Story:

Jackalope Wives - Apex Magazine (written as Ursula Vernon)
The Dryad’s Shoe - Women Destroy Fantasy, Fantasy Magazine (as T. Kingfisher)
Toad Words  - self published, (as T. Kingfisher)


Boar & Apples - self-published as part of the Toad Words & Other Stories anthology, approx 25K (as T. Kingfisher)


The Seventh Bride - self-published, approx 57K (as T. Kingfisher)


The Hidden Almanac (with Kevin Sonney)

I think that covers everything of significance I've been doing lately. If you are so inclined to vote for one of those, thank you!

Although it falls a few days short of 2014, you might wish to add A Dark Elf Solstice.

*laugh!* Oh yeah...but no, I think that's outside the qualifier. And I can't imagine anybody's gonna give THAT an award! *grin*

So if I want to nominate e.g. "Toad Words", should I nominate it as a U. Vernon or T. Kingfisher story?

T. Kingfisher is probably the best, although you can probably include the other name in parenthesis-- "Toad Words" T. Kingfisher (Ursula Vernon) or something like that?

Both names I think. Removes any ambiguity.

My word count thingy thinks The Dryad's Shoe is a Novelette (over 7500 words).

Word thinks it's 7300, so just shy of the mark!

I guess my firefox word counting add on is 200 words off then. I wonder why.

I've really been enjoying reading through your T. Kingfisher stuff! (And the authors you cite in the intros, for that matter!) I think you're getting very close to that "uber comfort book" goal you set, if you aren't there already! I'm really hoping you have a few more novels itching to get out of your pen!

I can honestly say that your wish will be granted unless I'm hit by a bus--one is nearly done, just needs editing, and I'm cooking away on the current one! So there's at least two more fairy tale retellings still to come!

Thank you again for the many tasty stories!

(The link for Dryad's Shoe seems to point to Toad Words.)

'tis fixed -- thank you!

Just wanted to tell you how much I LOVED "Toad Words" and "Seventh Bride". You are officially on my list of people to "buy anything that comes out as soon as it's available". That's all. :)

Such much good stuff! Well done, Ursula.

I would like to say that I just saw your new book 'Castle Hangnail' on Amazon and it looks very interesting :D. Is the format kinda like Nurk? In that there will be illustrations here and there through out? I noticed that it was listed to have 320 pages. Will there be a sequel as well?

Ack, super late reply, sorry!

Format very much like Nurk, only longer. Text, some illos.

They haven't bought a sequel yet, but if it does well, I would be happy to sell them one. Unlike Nurk, this one doesn't leave much in the way of hanging threads, so it's complete if they don't.
