I'm even more delighted to announce that the judges at the Bisexual Book Awards included Gleams of a Remoter World in their list of finalists.
The winners were announced on Sunday and Gleams didn't quite make the grade on the night, but I'm not entirely surprised. One of the main judging criteria (along with quality of writing) was 'quantity of bisexual content' and if I'm brutally honest, the main character's sexuality is only referred to a handful of times, so it's hardly a wonder if the judges felt other books had a stronger claim to the award.
I'm still glowing, though, because being an award finalist makes all the hard work worth while. Many thanks to the Bi Writers Association for selecting the book and including me.
