I’m sorry, this was simply too funny not to share. For once, I don’t mean to come across as arrogant; it is an accomplishment to have several hundred readers a day. That being said, it is abundantly clear that these rabbits not only have ZERO concept of the relative readerships involved, and they can’t even bother to take five seconds to figure out the score before hopping to strategerize:

THE CARL BRANDON AWARDS
But speaking of awards, TC declares “you are BY FAR my favorite PoC author” and reminds us that it is nomination time for the Carl Brandon Awards. The Carl
Brandon Parallax Award is for an outstanding work of speculative fiction
by a self-identified writer of color. The Carl Brandon Kindred Award is
for an outstanding speculative fiction work dealing with race and
ethnicity. You may nominate the same work for both awards.
My eligible works:
The Hugo-nominated “Opera Vita Aeterna”, from The Last Witchking, published by Marcher Lord Hinterlands, is eligible for both the Parallax Award and the Kindred Award as a short story.
Wardog’s Coin, published by Marcher Lord Hinterlands, is eligible for
the Parallax Award as a short story collection (one author).
QUANTUM MORTIS A Man Disrupted published by Marcher Lord Hinterlands, is eligible for the Parallax Award as a novel.
QUANTUM MORTIS Gravity Kills published by Marcher Lord Hinterlands, is eligible for the Parallax Award as a novel.
Other eligible works:
I would also remind you that the Hugo-nominated WARBOUND, by Larry Correia, published by Baen Books, is eligible for the Parallax Award as a novel.
Nominations can be made here. They cost nothing and can be made by anyone, but they must be made by April 30th.
