It’s a serious pleasure to let you know that An Inheritance of Ashes, a book with apparently more energy than me, has won the 2016 Copper Cylinder Award in the YA category.
The adult category winner is Silvia Moreno-Garcia’s Signal To Noise, which is a neat, unique first novel, and the company just makes this that much better.
I will post pictures when pictures are for the having.

Now that it’s official:
I am thrilled to let you know that An Inheritance of Ashes is the winner of the 2016 Sunburst Award in the Young Adult Novel category.
It’s recognized along with Gemma Files’s incredible Experimental Film in the adult category, and Catherine MacLeod’s “Hide and Seek” in the short fiction category.
Given the amazing works on the longlist and shortlist, this is about three times the honour it would normally be, so: A million congratulations to everyone — winners and nominees! — and, well. Thank you. So much.
