Helllooooo there! I keep seeing these things pop up, and so: voila! AWARDS POST!
The only thing of mine that has come out this year (I think) is Desdemona and the Deep.
With regards to the Nebula word count requirements, I believe it would be considered a leeetle novel.
I think if it were to be considered for any other award–Locus, Hugo, or World Fantasy–it would be considered a novella (as it was written to be one), though I did a slip or two of the fingers in the editing stage and WHOOPS went my word count.
If thou’rt of a mind to do’t, go ye forth and READ my Des, and then–should she please thee, Phossy Gals et al–go on and give her a GREAT GOBLIN GOB OF VOTAGE RIGHT WHERE THE GOBBIN GETS GOOD!

Remind me what the actual wordcount is, my darling?
41,017–and so, for the Nebulas, a novel. I have asked if there was wriggle room, but not for that particular one, I think. I should do some more responsible research, but ah. MY ONE WEAKNESS.
I vote for you ! and DESDEMONA! and the DEEP! (do I get three votes???? lol, love ya
You adorable mama. You get INFINITY votes. But maybe not with the SFWA. 😀
