I recieved this wonderful notification a day or two ago:

Sally and Joel

On behalf of the Science Fiction and Fantasy Association of New Zealand Inc. we write to advise that you have been successful in getting onto the final ballot for the 2008 Sir Julius Vogel Awards in the category of  Best Professional Publication  for Deputy Dan and the Mysterious Midnight Marauder.

The voting for the awards will occur at Conscription, to be held over Queen’s Birthday Weekend in Auckland.

I’ve looked at the SSFANZ website and this is what they say about the awards:

Voting on the Sir Julius Vogel Awards takes place before and at the National Science Fiction convention each year. You are eligible to vote if you are a member of SFFANZ, OR a member of the National Science Fiction convention that year. You are only entitled to one vote, even if you belong to both.

I dropped back an e-mail asking how absentee votes may be registered and I will let everyone know as the information comes back to me. I hope that all of you who are members or attending, and who loved the book, will send in a vote for us!

/shameless plug! :)
