Baby’s First Awards Eligibility

Oh, it’s that time of year: Awards Eligibility roundups!

And since I have my first story published!!! this year, that means, I’m told, I am eligible to be nominated for such things. Next year I hope to have more stories out in the world for your enjoyment, but for now, there’s just the one.

And because this is my first year publishing something I believe I am also eligible for the Astounding Award for new writers?

The Scribe’s Garden, a 500 word short story/ flash fiction, published in May 2021 by Cast of Wonders, can be found here:

It is firstly a story about passing on the torch to the next generation, but also of the consequences even good magic can bring, and the simple joys of gardens and flowers and fluttering things.

“The Scribe’s Garden” was inspired by a summer of raising caterpillars to butterflies with my daughter, and a scribal magic system that’s been quietly growing in my mind for ages.

I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it!
