Star Wars: Adventures in Wild Space – The Cold nominated for Scribe Award

This morning, I woke to the fantastic news that Star Wars: Adventures in Wild Space – The Cold has been nominated for a Scribe Award by the International Association of Media Tie-In Writers. ​

The Cold is listed in the YA Original category which encompasses both Middle Grade and YA books.

This is my sixth Scribe nomination, and my first for prose, the other nominations falling under the audio drama category.

In 2014, Mark Wright and I won the Scribe for Best Audio for Blake’s Seven: The Armageddon Storm, and the trophy is still proudly displayed on the mantelpiece.

This year’s award will be presented at a special panel at San Diego Comic Con.
