Ah Well, It Didn't Cost Me Anything

War of the Words Short List

The novel I sent to the UK first novel contest apparently didn't make the short list. C'est la vie.

They actually posted the short list back on Tuesday 8 September 2009, the day after they were going to make contact to the authors. I wasn't sure they were sticking to the schedule, since they'd mentioned they got a lot of entries and then on Friday 4 September 2009 said they were going to expand the short list from I think six to ten authors. But, sigh, I hadn't heard from them and so remembered to go looking on the SciFi Now U.K. site.

Ah well. Nice thing is that I have this novel, which I'll look over one more time, then I'll start sending it out again.

It's all good. (grin)
