Earth Rise nominated for UMA Award!

I am happy to announce that Earth Rise has been nominated for The UMA Award in the Best Short Fiction category.

More formally known as the Annual Anthropomorphic Literature and Arts Award, the Ursa Major Award is presented annually for excellence in the furry arts. It is intended as Anthropomorphic Fandom's equivalent of the Hugo Award ® presented by the World Science Fiction Society, mystery fandom's Anthony Award, horror fandom's Bram Stoker Award, and so forth. Anyone may nominate and vote for candidates for the Awards. The UMA is a global public award and decided by the fans, not by a committee. You can Cast your Vote here.

Wish me luck for the finals :).
