Please vote for Rapacia for the Oregon Book Awards!

If you do, you will win a warm sensation that you have done something vaguely noble that will leave the world slightly better off than if you hadn’t.

Rapacia: The Second Circle of Heck Nominated for Oregon Book Award!

Though speechless, I hope very much that I will be allowed to give a speech! Check it out: apparently, readers will be able to have their say too, so don’t be shy! This is way cool, practically uber cool. Here’s a little background on the awards:

“The Oregon Book Awards are presented annually for the finest accomplishments by Oregon writers who work in genres of poetry, fiction, literary nonfiction, drama and young readers literature. All finalists are promoted in libraries and bookstores across the state, and invited to take part in the Oregon Book Awards Author Tour, which brings finalists to public libraries and independent bookstores in towns including North bend, Eugene, Newport and Astoria. Oregon Book Awards Special Awards honor some of the state‚Äôs most dedicated supporters and lovers of books.”


This is really bad but was fun to make.

If any of you make a Heck XTRANORMAL I’ll mail you a Heck button!
