    Hey guys,

    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”

    Off to jump around the room a bit now…

    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!’

    Thanks guys!
    Annoyingly, I am only going for the Sunday, so won’t get to revel in the glory. Will have a little party on my sofa at the appropriate time πŸ™‚

    Hi Deads, I can write a blog, but I’m only going to be at the Festival for the Sunday, so I’m not sure how helpful it will be!
