I’ve just found out that “It Takes Two” is a Locus Award finalist. I’m in some fine company, including two of my fellow Hugo Finalists.
The winner will be announced here in Seattle on Saturday June 26th—
—which means I have a tricky decision to make. On the one hand, an evening of catching up with old friends, meeting writers who could become new friends, and maybe (or maybe not) picking up a shiny object for my shelf. On the other, well, it’s our anniversary which we tend to prefer to celebrate in private. Yes, we have many anniversaries (see this and this and this), but every single one matters to me. A lot. Decisions, decision…
But, hey, what a lovely dilemma to be in :)

Nice! And well deserved on both counts!
Congratulations!! Great news.
Somehow, I think you may find a way to do both… :) Hope so anyway.
Thank you. And, yep, I like to get my own way :)
Uh, well, what does Kelley say? Perhaps you are asking the wrong people. Congratulations! Nice dilemma to have! By the way, thanks for making the story available. I just finished it this morning and quite enjoyed it.
If I were you. . .I'd choose to celebrate Kelley on that day. Full-stop.
Here's the thing: the event is in the afternoon:
12:30 to 3:00 p.m.: Locus Awards Lunch Banquet and Ceremony at the Lake Union Courtyard Marriott with M.C. Connie Willis, who will present the awards and judge the traditional Hawai'ian Shirt Contest. Books will be available for purchase at the event, thanks to University Book Store.
So I'll be able to have my cake and eat it, too. Assuming I'm the one who y'know gets the cake…
Kelley says “Yay Nicola” and appreciates all of you for thinking of me. The nice thing is, I think we can celebrate the nomination and our anniversary both. After 22 years I am pretty confident that she loves me :) and I am happy to share her with folks who appreciate her.
Yep. Because they don't bake :)
