Armageddon’s Arrow nabs a Scribe Award!

armageddons-arrow-coverA few months ago, I babbled that this year’s nominees for the 2016 Scribe Awards, sponsored by the International Association of Media Tie-In Writers (IAMTW) included a bunch of work by several friends of mine, as well as Armageddon’s Arrow, my Star Trek: The Next Generation novel that was published last year.

Last night, I was surprised to learn that I’d won!

I know it sounds like false modesty, but I honestly was pretty sure that one of my fellow nominees would take home the award. Indeed, my money was on the rather redoubtable Jonathan Maberry, who’s something of a force of nature right now when it comes to the written word. That said, I’m happy to bring the trophy to Ward Manor.

Courtesy of the IAMTW, here’s the complete list of nominees, with the winner in each category in bold. I’m thrilled that my brother in literary shenanigans, David Mack, also received an award for his awesome 24 novel, Rogue!
