Did you do the covers? Amazing!
I didn’t have anything to do with the Dark City anthology, except to buy it and read it, and Erin is a dear lady and talented writer who is muchly deserving of the nomination. 😀
For the PROTECTORS 2 anthology I shared editorial duties with Tom Pluck and formatted the ebook. For Josh’s book, I did one round of proofreading, formatted the ebook and laid out the print edition. I can’t take any credit for the nominations, but I can still feel pride in playing a part.
