The list is short.

Witchmark is eligible for all sorts of 2018 awards, including the Nebula, the Hugo, and the Prix Aurora Award!

(Please note that I am not eligible for the Campbell award for Best New Writer. I published a qualifying work way back in 2003.)

Thank you to everyone who loved this book. I have included a few reviews from various internet locations, in case they’re useful:

Publisher’s Weekly, Starred Review: “The final revelations are impossible to see coming and prove that Polk is a writer to watch for fans of clever, surprising period fantasy.”

Booklist, Starred Review: “Many disparate elements are expertly woven together to make this debut a crackler, with layers like a nesting doll and just as delightful to discover.”

The Best New Fantasy Novels, The New York Times: “thoroughly charming and deftly paced; I appreciated how well the world-building meshed with the plot’s development, like a map’s surface being revealed in time with one’s progress along it.”

The Best Science Fiction and Fantasy Novels of 2018, Barnes and Noble: “This bewitching story of political maneuverings, dangerous magic, sweet romance, and bicycle chases is never less than addictive.”

Witchmark is available for sale at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Books a Million, IndieBound, and Powell’s.
