The Gemmell awards are, of course, inspired by the legendary (see what I did there?) fantasy author David Gemmell, and recognize general awesomeness in the fantasy genre. They give out three awards each year: the Legend award for best fantasy novel, the Morningstar award for best debut fantasy novel, and the Ravenheart award for best fantasy novel cover art.
Guess what? Anyone can vote! And you can actually vote for Duskfall for both the Morningstar award and the Ravenheart--just go here to the voting section of the Gemmell awards website. The first award listed is for the Legend, but you won't find Duskfall there, although there are some really fantastic books on that list as well (and the long list for the Legend award is, indeed, long this year). Just scroll down on the same page, and you'll see the Morningstar and Ravenheart awards. Easy peasy!
It's honesty a huge honor to even make the long list--to be associated with David Gemmell in any way, and to be on the same list as every author who's been nominated this year, is pretty incredible. I'm happy to have made it this far!
If you enjoyed Duskfall, consider voting for it!
