Scribe Awards Nominees Named

The IAMTW has named the nominees for its inaugural set of Scribe Awards. See the full list after the cut. Sharp-eyed readers may notice that my Prophecy of the Dragon snagged an award for Best Young Adult Novel.

Also, Steve Sullivan, one of my fellow Alliterates, has a novel up for the same award. My pal Jeff Mariotte has novels up for two awards: Best Speculative Fiction Original Novel and Best General Fiction Original Novel. Several of my fellow Black Library authors—Steven Savile, Nathan Long, James Swallow, and Christa Faust—picked up nods too, as did my friend Alice Henderson.

Congratulations to all the nominees! Here’s to learning about the winners at this year’s Comic-Con.


The International Association of Media Tie-In Writers is pleased to announce the nominees for the first annual Scribe Awards, honoring excellence in licensed tie-in writing for books published in 2006.

Our first annual GRANDMASTER AWARD, honoring career achievement in the field, will go to DONALD BAIN, author of the MURDER SHE WROTE novels and the ghostwriter behind COFFEE, TEA OR ME and other bestsellers.

The 2007 Scribe awards will be given out at a ceremony in late July at Comic-Con in San Diego. The details on the event, and how to attend, will be announced in the near future. Congratulations to all our nominees and special thanks to all our judges for their time, dedication and hard work!

  2. I definitely think that Prophecy would have deserved the nomination even if there were more submissions. Not to sound like I am being overly critical, but I have noticed marked (no pun intended) improvement in your Tie In books last year. I liked “Marked for Death,” but it felt a little repetitious. Road to Death and Queen were much better, as were your final two Silver Dragon books. The first Silver Dragon book set the milieu, but the final two made me mourn the end of the series.
