Thank you to everyone who submitted their books to us. It was not easy to narrow down the entries to a longlist as the quality was consistently high and there were several serious contenders for the top three prizes. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to read your work.
We are now running our annual short story competition. Please look on our website for more details. First prize £500 (approx 805 US$; €609).
I am going to the RWA 2012 Annual Conference in Anaheim, CA. I will attempt to post to the blog daily.
My focus this year will be workshops on promoting as I will have two books to promote and am considering a short story collection early next year. Stay tuned.
