Thanks to my Fans - wow, I have fans!

Yesterday I got my Analog July/August issue. I felt the usual anticipation of good stories, and also a bit of nostalgia for last year's July/August issue, in which I had my first ever publication. When I opened it up I found the results of the Anlab voting - Analog readers' favorite stories of last year, by length category. I was shocked and thrilled to discover that my story, "Let the Word Take Me" was voted in third place!

For all of you who voted, thank you so much. I'm so glad you liked the story of David Linden and Allayo. To go from being an unpublished writer to a writer with so many fans in just one year has been amazing and wonderful.

For all of you who may be curious to hear the story, I will in fact be reading it aloud at the Westercon convention, this coming July 5th in Tempe, Arizona at 2:00pm. Look for me!

And again, my heartfelt thanks.


  1. Congratulations Juliette! That's very exciting.

    I'm going to have to pick up a copy of that issue and read your story. I have a couple issues that I want to get anyways so I'll just add that one on the list.

  2. Congratulations, Juliette!

    I'll tell my friend bill Thomason to look out for you at Westercon.

  3. Collin,

    Thank you, thank you, thank you! I'm so glad you enjoyed Bronte!

    Two fans for that tale now. Guess I'd better crack down to work. If nothing else, rough out the wedding scene. There aren't enough hours in the day... But, yes, I am going to get back to that.

  4. Juliette, I have an idea for how the attack may have been possible. It came to me at 5:30 this morning after a night of not sleeping. I went to sleep almost immediately after for a few hours and then had to be up and doing. So, as of yet, I haven't had a chance to work the idea out. But I think it'll be just the ticket.

    Collin, Astute observation, that. I'll keep it in mind.

  5. Catreona,

    What you've just subbed to me is already far better than the first thing you sent. So well done, there.

  6. I've been working, but must stop for the night. Very tired! I think it's going to work though.

  7. Congratulations, Juliette!

    (P.S. My reworked beginning is coming!)

  8. :) I'm so happy for you! Have fun in Tempe. I loved the saguaro park there.
