The news was broken on Jay's weblog which had this to say:

DGLA and Edge Lit

Just got back from the Edge Lit festival in Derby, organised by the wonderful Alex Davis.  It was really great to see everyone, and particularly gratifying to find out so many people have already voted in this year's Gemmells.  There were still a few who hadn't even heard of us!  They were pretty excited to find out that they, the readers, have the…

I'm honoured to be here. Mr. Gemmel's work has inspired me to writing my own tales. For now I will remain a voter, but perhaps...

Thank you for the warm welcome.

I was surfing the net after new fantasy books when I saw that a book was nominated for the David Gemmell Legend Award. That caught my interest, so I had to check it out. David Gemmell is my favorite author (alongside Tolkien, but two different kind of authors), so I wanted to find out what this was.

I must say that it's a brilliant idea, seeing how much David Gemmell gave to the fantasy genre. He was a true artist when it came to writing fantastic fantasy books.

Thanks for your welcome, I posted in the wrong part of board. But thanks to Debbie, will be able to find my way around now. I have read several of David Gemmells books over the last year. Great reads for sure. Plan on reading more.

Thank you for the welcome, much appreciated!

Life is hectic at the moment so I don't know what I'll be able to contribute, but I'll be reading all these great book recommendations and trying to find time to read the ones I've missed so far ...
