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.

Other Gemmell Awards

I wanted to let you know that besides the Legend Award, The Blinding Knife has also been nominated for an award that I have absolutely nothing to do with! And that is the Ravenheart Award, which celebrates fantasy cover artists and their work. Congratulations to Silas Manhood, who illustrated The Blinding Knife’s cover. I noticed that the voting page for the Ravenheart Award doesn’t have the cover art listed on the voting page, so I thought I’d put those amazing covers up here. Click on any one to see it full size.
