My YA novel Mica, fille de Transyl is a 2013 Trillium Award finalist!
Organised by the Ontario Media Development Corporation, the Trillium awards reward literary excellency in Ontario.
The OMDC supports the province’s creative economy by providing innovative programs, services and funding for the film & television; book & magazine publishing; interactive digital media & music industries.
Moreover, this year, two of the three YA novels belong to the spec-fic genre (outright science fiction for me, anticipation for my colleague Daniel Marchildon). The third novel is in a more familiar crime story genre.
So, as I predicted, SF is finally rising as an acceptable literary genre. It has taken a long undergroung toil and 14 SF novels from my part, to get to see this.
From left to right: Daniel Marchildon, Claude Forand, Michèle Laframboise, happily signing together!
