The Canadian Science Fiction and Fantasy Association has announced the ballot for the 2015 Aurora Awards, recognizing the best in Canadian science fiction and fantasy, and I’m pleased and proud to announce that Twist of the Blade is on the ballot in the Best Young Adult Novel Category.
Others nominated in that category:
Lockstep by Karl Schroeder, Tor Books;

Out of This World by Charles de Lint, Razorbill Canada;
