The nominees for the Tenth Annual Scribe Awards (The International Association of Media Tie-In Writers yearly awards) have been announced and I am delighted to say that Backcountry has been nominated in the Adapted Novel – General and Speculative category.
It’s a huge honour simply to see my name alongside the other nominees (both in my category and across the whole list–which you can see below the pic) and I wish them all the best–anyone of them would be a deserving winner indeed.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
The Tenth Annual Scribe Awards
The International Association of Media Tie-In Writers is pleased to announce the Scribe Award Nominees for 2016.
Acknowledging excellence in this very competitive field, the IAMTW’s Scribe Awards honor licensed works that tie in with other media such as television, movies, gaming, or comic books. They include original works set in established universes, and adaptations of stories that have appeared in other formats and that cross all genres. Tie-in works run the gamut from westerns to mysteries to procedurals, from science fiction to fantasy to horror, from action and adventure to superheroes. HALO, Elementary, 24, Star Trek, Mike Hammer, Star Wars, Shadowrun, Doctor Who: these represent just a few.
The Scribe Award winners will be announced at ComicCon San Diego in July. The exact day, time and location of the Scribes Panel including the award ceremony will be announced shortly.
IAMTW says thank you to everyone who sent entries, all wonderful, for consideration.
