Some News on Last Year's Competition
I’m delighted to report that one of the entrants from last year has been published. Although Vanessa Couchman’s opening chapter of The House at Zaronza did not win a cash prize, her entry was one of four for which the senior editors of Crooked Cat Publishing requested the full manuscript. Obviously, the rest of the novel impressed them enough to offer a publishing contract.
For all of you who have made the second quarter 2014 short lists, congratulations and good luck with the final stage of judging.
