I was more than a little (read: a lot) excited this morning to wake up and find that The Game Bird had been longlisted for 2018 BOOKNEST FANTASY AWARDS in the best debut category.

The Game Bird is a small ship, and old – and she’s up against some pretty incredible books – but if you’d still like to sling The Game Bird a vote, you can do so here.

Think of all the humiliation you could save me.

Oh, and you can win a sword. You can never have too many swords.
