Legend Award Winner

I’ve just won the David Gemmell Legend Award!

Thanks to YOU, my fans, I’m now (or will be soon) the proud owner of THIS:














Thank you so much. While several of the other winners graciously congratulated me (more graciously than I would have managed, no doubt), I think Joe Abercrombie summed up the enthusiasm for my win best:

I think it’s a good thing they made this award an axe. I may need it for self-defense.

    CONGRATS! I had a really hard time deciding between you and Abercrombie. I’ll admit… I voted twice. Once for each. 😀 what was I supposed to do!? How is one supposed to actually decide? Nope. Can’t be done.

    While I’ve read all of your books, I have yet to read any of Joe’s. This made it easier to vote for you, to be sure. @lordgrimdark’s books are on my TBR list though!

    Congrats are much deserved! You rock, just don’t let it go to your head. Although, how can you not let it go to somebody’s head when carrying around a giant axe as your reward!

    Congratulations!! Of course The Blinding Knife is the best fantasy novel! I’m glad my favorite author is getting some recognition.

    I’m a big fan of both your books and David Gemmell’s (rest his soul). It is truly a high honour to be chosen to wield Snaga. May you have the strength and fortitude of Druss the Legend himself to forever uphold the Warriors Code!
