I'm a Scribe nominee again!
For the eighth time, I have been blessed to be nominated for a Scribe Award by the International Association of Media Tie-in Writers, which are given out at San Diego Comic-Con every year to reward excellence in the tie-in writing field. My short story "Back in El Paso My Life Will Be Worthless" in The X-Files: Trust No One (edited by the mighty Jonathan Maberry) got a nomination nod this year! (Along, amusingly enough, with three other stories in the same anthology.)

Here's the full press release from the IAMTW:

The International Association of Media Tie-In Writers is pleased to announce the Scribe Award Nominees for 2016.
Acknowledging excellence in this very competitive field, the IAMTW’s Scribe Awards honor licensed works that tie in with other media such as television, movies, gaming, or comic books. They include original works set in established universes, and adaptations of stories that have appeared in other formats and that cross all genres. Tie-in works run the gamut from westerns to mysteries to procedurals, from science fiction to fantasy to horror, from action and adventure to superheroes. HALO, Elementary, 24, Star Trek, Mike Hammer, Star Wars, Shadowrun, Doctor Who--these represent just a few.

The Scribe Award winners will be announced at Comic-Con International in San Diego in July. The exact day, time and location of the Scribes Panel including the award ceremony will be announced shortly.

This is Keith again. I want to single out several of my closest friends who are also nominated, including Dayton Ward, Christie Golden, Jonathan Maberry (who not only got a nomination, but also edited the XF antho), and especially my brudda David Mack, who got two noms! Plus also my friend and new publisher, Kevin J. Anderson...

Just in general, I'm in some really fine company here, from writers whose work I've admired for years to people whose careers I've actually been involved in developing to some degree or other. Just in general, these are all some great folks.

Congrats to all!
