What Have You Done? What Have You Loved? 2023 Edition

It’s that time of year again – award eligibility posts are popping up around the various scattered corners of the internet, and readers are starting to reflect on their favorite works of the past year. Every year for the past several years, I’ve assembled a links round-up post of eligibility posts, recommended reading posts, and general helpful links and resources.

If you’re an author, editor, or publisher and you have such a post, either of your own work or work you’ve loved this year, please do send your link my way and I’ll add it to the list. Feel free to drop it in the comments, or email me at

If you’re an author, editor, publisher, or creator with award eligible work, and you’re on the fence about putting together a post, I highly encourage you to do it. It’s a valuable way to reflect on what you did in the past year, not to mention letting others know what work you have out there and in what categories your work is eligible. There’s so much work published each year, it’s hard to keep up, so it never hurts to remind people what you’ve done.

I’ll be putting together my own eligibility post at some point, as well as my usual recommended reading posts. I’ll also be updating this post frequently with new links as I find or receive them. In the meantime, browse the links below, check out the fantastic work that’s been published in 2023, and send your own link my way!

  1. Award 🧵: this year I got my story “Asleep at the Wheel of the Razorwave Grand Prix” published in “The Back Forty” anthology! If you love the unknown and unorthodox racing stories, give it a read!

  2. LITTLE NOTHING by Dee Holloway (Queen of Swords Press, 2023) is eligible for all new novella awards.

  3. Thank you for this opportunity! I’d like to share my 2023 book “Spirits in Our Midst – Ghost Stories” by B.J. Lawyer. I tried my best to entwine some love stories with explorations of life and death that oftentimes end with romantically heartwarming conclusions. Others are just a little gruesome and dark, as most ghost stories usually are, lol. I hope you enjoy them –

  4. Thanks so much for doing this yet again! Here’s a little post from me.
