Got some good news en route to AWP last week and am only getting around to announcing it here: Shader has been nominated for a Firecracker Award!
The Firecrackers have been around for more than 20 years and they promote indie publishers and small presses that put out books. I remember when Soft Skull used to get a couple Firecrackers, back when it was an indie press–this is almost 15 years ago–and it was a big deal for them. Well, it’s a big deal for me now as well.
Check out the list of nominees here.There are a lot of great fellow nominees in the Creative Nonfiction finalists, so actually winning the thing is another matter altogether. Like the people at the Academy Awards say, it’s just great to be nominated.
