I’ve been nominated for the storySouth Million Writers Award!

Screen shot 2013-08-09 at 8.13.35 AMFolks, this is just too amazing not to share:

The editors at Bartleby Snopes have nominated my story “Lightning My Pilot” for the 2013 storySouth Million Writers Award!

It’s a hell of an honor, and I’m inexpressibly proud to be listed alongside Joseph Lambach’s “Cutting Hair for My Sister” and Brian Kayser’s “Underwear and Leftovers.”

Thanks, SO MUCH, to the editors at Bartleby Snopes (easily one of my top-five favorite lit mags online), and many happy congrats to Lambach and Kayser. Also, you should go to the announcement on Bartleby Snopes‘s website and scroll down — there are a few other stories that readers nominated as well.

Good luck to everyone!

(Oh, and if you’re interested in the story’s background, I did a three-part interview with EJ Runyon about “Lightning My Pilot” over at her blog.)

  1. For one awful moment I thought it was going to be one of these pay-it-forward awards you get on WordPress, and I thought “Oh come on!” But then I thought, “This is Sam, so no way.” So I clicked, and – Lo! – it was something legit, so that is pretty damn good!
