Welcome to March!

I don’t know about you, but I’m expecting it to be a very busy month with lots of crazy things happening involving or resolving what I’m going to be doing for the rest of the year in terms of my day job, my writing, and yes, even my work as a hypnotist. But you don’t have to worry about any of that. No, you’re only job is to watch the pretty spiral for a few minutes.

You see, March is also the month that members of SFWA submit their final ballots for the Nebula Award. And because of my self-serving use of my powers of evil mind control, I’m sitting here with a nomination for Best Novella for “Barry’s Tale.” In addition, the deadline for nominating works for this year’s Hugo Awards is coming up fast on March 10th, and it would be a shame to have gotten the Nebula nom and not have a matching Hugo nom, so…

Just relax, stare at the spiral, open up the appropriate window in your browser, and let your conscious mind drift off into bliss while your unconscious mind does my bidding. That’s right. I would add a maniacal laugh here, but I don’t want to distract you from your trance.

Oh, what the heck, you’re already done voting by now. Bwahahahaha!

Also, thank you.
