Third time not lucky...

Well the Aurealis best fantasy went to a West Australian author - unfortunately not me! Sigh. I shall try again.

Congrats to Juliet Marillier and the other category winners, especially Shaun Tan for an extraordinary work, "The Arrival". If you have not seen this, take a look. Buy it for your kids. Buy it for your friends. Keep one for yourself. It is a very special work.

Juliet's a tough act to topple, Glenda - but your turn will come. I really, really do believe that. Yes, Shaun Tan is brilliant - the Renaissance Man! It must be something in the water in WA:-)

Hey, to be nominated three times for an Aurealis is quite an achievement already, and we're proud of you for that! It underlines the fact that you're producing consistently good work and in the running with the best. :o)

Yeah you are ace! So don't fret. One day you'll conquer the world and forget about us! Donna who?

Think about all the other novels that weren't nominated.

I was sitting up there in the theatre fingers crossed for you, Glenda. Sorry it didn't work. Next time.

Maybe you've written that book already, and the world just hasn't woken up to the fact ... yet. :o)
