Very excited and a bit overwhelmed to announce that I’ve been shortlisted for both the pitch perfect and opening chapter comps for this year’s Festival.
I submitted material for my second book, which is only at the planning (yes, actual planning, you did hear me right) stage. Grand total of 1400 words of it written, but it means a lot to me that the idea seems to have “legs”
Always great to have ‘one of our own’ to cheer on. Mind you, I’m going to have to hold myself in check. Apparently, I’m doing the comp intros on both Friday and Saturday this year. Even though the decision isn’t down to me, I’ll be tempted to jump up and down and yell, ‘Vote for her!’
