Hey, peeps —
Happy Wednesday and all that. Thought I’d pass along some newsie things to you.
The Golden Crown Literary Society is taking nominations for its literary awards. Here’s the drawback. The first deadline
IS TODAY OMG GET YOUR STUFF IN ASAP PLEASE HURRY BEFORE THE WORLD COMES CRASHING DOWN AND YOUR BOOKS SELF-COMBUST INTO STEAMING PILES OF “WHY DIDN’T WE GET SUBMITTED TO GCLS OMG WE ARE BEREFT.”
That is, if a book was published between January 1 and August 31, 2015, those nominations for the Goldies need to be in TODAY, people. TODAY! SEPTEMBER 30. Dang. That snuck up on us, didn’t it?
THE NEXT DEADLINE IS DECEMBER 21. That’s for books published between September 1 and November 30, 2015. So if you’ve got books that will be published then, here’s your chance.
