Nominations for the 2015 Sir Julius Vogel Awards are open!

Mayday 3dNominations for the 2015 Sir Julius Vogel Awards, New Zealand’s premier science fiction and fantasy awards, are now open!

Since my novel Mayday: A Kaiju Thriller was released in 2014, it is eligible for the Best Professional Novel category. But to get on the voting ballot I need your help!

If you read and enjoyed Mayday, I’d really appreciate it if you could take the time to send in an email nomination. You don’t have to be a New Zealander to make a nomination — the SFFANZ accepts nominations from any living person on Earth until 31st January 2015. The more nominations Mayday gets, the better chance it has of making it onto the voting ballot.

All you have to do is copy and paste the information below, add in your name and email, and forward it to:

You can nominate multiple works in a category (each in a separate email), so if you enjoyed any other Kiwi SFF novels released in 2014, be sure to nominate them as well!
