The Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America, which sponsors Writer Beware, has chosen me to receive this year’s SFWA Service Award for my work with Writer Beware.
Here’s the official press release.
This is very, very cool, and I’m truly honored. By rights, half of the award belongs to Ann–not only is she Writer Beware’s co-founder, she ranks me on the Writing Scams Committee. But she and her husband, former SFWA President Michael Capobianco, received a joint SFWA Service Award a few years ago for their many years of service as officers and volunteers, and I guess this is the kind of award you can’t get twice.
I’m grateful to SFWA for standing behind Writer Beware for the past ten years. Ann and I do the work, but without SFWA’s steadfast and ongoing support, we could not exist. And I’m deeply grateful to all of you–the many writers who read this blog, who visit the Writer Beware website, and who contact us to share their stories. Without you, we couldn’t exist either.
Here’s to ten more years–at least–of exposing schemes and busting scams.
