Please be sure to have your work ready for your reveal day, with the podfic links and streaming in the body of the work. The mods will check all posts prior to their posting date and contact you with any issues we see, but please double-check your own posts as well in case we miss something. Mods will reveal on AO3 and crosspost to this comm on DW and Tumblr. Once the project is live, you're free to crosspost wherever else you'd like.
Reminder #1: Party Favors are due August 26, and will be posted August 27.
Reminder #2: To those participants with extensions, please remember that your due date is our agreed-upon extension date, not your posting date. However, if you would like to turn in a postable draft at your deadline and then update it between then and your posting date, you may.

Ira and Susan attended Worldcon 75 on our behalf (we can't even with our jealousy over Ira getting to meet Daveed Diggs). We're so grateful to everyone who nominated and voted for us this year. Thanks also to our fellow finalists, too. It was lovely being a part of a robust ballot featuring commentary and criticism from a wide range of voices. The full list of finalists and winners can be read at thehugoawards.org.
We're still reeling a bit, but we wanted to at least reach out and say THANK YOU and OMG and WHAT and THANK YOU OMG, etc. We are super honored and so excited! Congrats to US, congrats to the other winners, and thanks for liking our work! ♥ You can find the text of our speech below.
Thanks so much for this amazing award. We accept on behalf of ourselves and the four Lady Business editors who couldn't be here tonight: Clare, Jodie, KJ, and Renay.
We also want to thank everyone who has supported Lady Business throughout the years in ways large and small, including our readers, commenters, and guest columnists. Special thanks go out to John Scalzi, whose work welcomed Renay back to science fiction. Without his books Renay wouldn't have been in the SF community to start this project with our co-founders, Ana and Jodie. Thanks to Ana Grilo of The Book Smugglers for consistent support and writing opportunities, Kate Elliott and Justin Landon for believing in our work and being the best cheerleaders, and Zachariah Carlson for being our personal Shadow Broker all these years.
When Lady Business was founded, the goal was to create a safer space for discussions in a community that was still struggling to recognize white women, much less any other marginalized identities. There's still work to be done, and change has been slow, but we are thrilled our project has been a voice within this cultural shift. We are incredibly honored that the Hugo voters find our intersectional feminist work valuable, and we will keep working to remain worthy of your recognition as we move forward.
We dedicate this award to Jodie Baker and Ana Silva. Thank you very much.
A friend has uploaded several for me, so I thought I'd drop you the link so you can grab them and re-upload, if that's possible?
Link is here and the zip contains the following
Ach, Das Knaben Augen (mp4)
Je te Veux
As well as some older podfics that I think have been restored to the archive already
hope this helps!
