In e-mail over the weekend, a couple of these came in: PBW, just to let you know, I've nominated you for [award] . . .
I appreciate the compliment, but I don't accept awards of any kind. I have had my name and/or my work removed from everything for which they have been nominated since 2002, and with the exception of one romance rag, everyone has respected my wishes. I hope you'll save me the headaches and do the same.
There are many, many other writers out there who deserve recognition and rarely get it. Please nominate one of them for your favorite award.
