Best Gay Historical of the Year?


Next year I am going to try and be more organised and have a proper SIN awards and will list all the releases as they come out –  but as we come to the end of the year I thought we’d have a fun poll and see if we can decide on what we think is the best release of the year.


1. The books has to have been released between 1st Jan 2008 and 31 December 2008. It must not be a re-release. It must be gay historical in alignment with the community e.g. pre-Stonewall fiction with no paranormal aspects.(Ghosts allowed)

2. You can self nominate this year, and the ‘best” will be decided by populist vote.  I may change this next year, if I can get readers to help and judge…

3. Nominations will close on 1st January 2009 and voting will take place throughout January. Awards will be handed out on Valentine’s day.

4. Feel free to suggest additional categories and I’ll feel free to ignore ’em! I’m happy to include others, such as short stories, if there are enough to make a race.

5. place your nominations in a comment on this thread. Sorry if that wasn’t clear.

Go for it!

  1. I’ll dive in:

    Novel: Lessons in Love by Charlie Cochrane
    Novella: Frost Fair by Erastes
    Cover: The Secret Tunnel by James Lear

  2. Ohh, self nomination! That make it easy – no one to beg. LOL!

    Novel: The Mercenary’s Tale by Lynn Lorenz

    Cover: Jackson’s Pride by Christine M. Griffin

  3. Novel: Whistling in The Dark by Tamara Allen.

  4. Self nomination sounds like fun 🙂

    Novel: Captain’s Surrender by Alex Beecroft (published 1st January 2008)
    Novella: Hard and Fast by Erastes
    Cover: Samuel Blackwell (Deceased) by Emma Collingwood.

  5. I didn’t realize Captain’s Surrender came out in 2008. If so, I think I might change my choice for novel, although that’s a toughie, because I liked Lessons in Love alot, too!

  6. Well, I’ll self nominate lessons in Love as well, if I can? If not, tell me and I’ll get Tamara to self nominate or cross-nominate or something.

  7. Any amount – no limit to nominations as long as they apply. Right now we don’t have enough to run the awards to be honest.

  8. Lessons in Love by Charlie Cochrane

    Bound By Deception by Ava March (Novella)

  9. I also would like to nominate A Hidden Beauty by Jamie Craig

  10. Cover – A Hidden Beauty by Jamie Craig
    Short story – Another Chance by Shawn Lane
    Novella – Bound by Deception by Ava March. Yes, I’m self-nominating. Couldn’t resist and it is fun. 🙂

  11. By all means, I nominate “Icarus in Flight” by Hayden Thorne!!!

  12. Also, I realize I’m the only one who has read it, but I’d also like to throw in a nom for “Two Irish Lads” by Gerry Burnie.
