News just in this morning… I did not win the Text Prize for fiction…
Congratulations to Jane Higgins, winner of the 2010 Text Prize for Young Adult and Children’s Writing, for her apocalyptic action novel The Bridge.
I’ll second that. Congratulations to Jane on her win, and congratulations to my fellow nominees for being shortlisted. May we all be published eventually!
See the Text Publishing site for more details, and the basic plot of Jane’s novel. It’s hard to tell of course from such a brief description, but The Bridge does sound like a compelling and exciting work.
I’ll be back here, writing away furiously on my next work, and perfecting the first News Bytes. Did I mention that News Bytes is most definitely a series? There was never really a place in the entry to indicate that, though I suppose the book itself gave some clues to that at the end.
But enough about me (that’s the only time you’ll ever hear this on my blog!) Congratulations to Jane again — may you have much success when the book is released.
