AUREALIS AWARDS SHORT-LISTING!

 
Very, very chuffed to have my latest novel (The Fall of the Dagger) short-listed for the Aurealis Awards  (Best Fantasy Novel).

That means that every time I have had a book eligible, I've had a short-listing... 10 times it must be now? 

I love the way the SF community in Australia does so much for authors, volunteering their time and effort -- and perhaps money in lost earnings -- just to say, "We love that you folk write, and we love what you write, and we'll take the time to show you..."

 Many, many thanks to everyone. 

And yes, like every book of the The Stormlord Trilogy which ultimately won the Sara Douglass Series Award, all three of the FORSAKEN LANDS trilogy have been shortlisted for the Aurealis.

Have YOU read it yet?

Congratulations to all the
short-listed authors. And to readers: choose any of them to entertain you. They are all talented Australians.

Thank you!

It's not likely it will win -- but I don't mind that. To know that it was good enough to be considered is enough...:)

And even better -- this year the awards ceremony is on Perth, so I will get to go!

Congratulations! Well deserved!

I'd also like to thank you for keeping the term 'the trots' in current English usage.

Best of luck!

Thank you all.

And Mac, having lived in remote areas of Asia from time to time -- trots was definitely a good description of certain events...
