My question - I won a national Canadian fiction award for a book published in 2012 by a small press. (It was actually the Canadian Authors Association Award for Fiction <http://canadianauthors.org/conference/caa-award-for-fiction-2013-shortlist/> ).
The award is not well known in the US, but it's totally legit. Is it okay to include a hyperlink to the award in a query? Or should I just list the award in the second to last paragraph and allow the agent to look it up?
Second, I'm not a huge fan of hyperlinks in email for two reasons:
1. my email management program finds them too spicy and often spits them into the spam filter (Priscilla eats anything)
2. it offends my sense of aesthetics (this is just me, and clearly I'm deranged from paint fumes)
I'd list the award but not the link. Remember though: that's my opinion not an ironclad publishing standard.
