Shortlisted for the Aurealis!!!

My third shortlisting for the Aurealis Award: Best Australian Fantasy Novel of the Year. This year it is for Heart of the Mirage. [See? Told you all, you should read it….]

Ok, I had better shut up before my head swells up. Or maybe I should remember that I haven’t ever won the actual award yet…Third time lucky maybe?

I think I am dancing on the ceiling, or something. I don’t seem to be making much sense even to myself… You know what actually tickles me? One of the other four shortlisted books is called Blaze of Glory. Anyone who has read my The Isles of Glory knows why I am laughing.

I am going to open a bottle of Lambrusco.

  1. Congratulations!

    Kendall (who just bought your previous trilogy before my other half cut of off from book-buying for myself for the holidays ๐Ÿ˜‰

  2. That’s really good news to hear, Glenda! So what if you don’t win? Not every book can make it into the shortlist! Congratulations!

  3. Nor should you!

    Commentary on the other thread notwithstanding, regardless of the pros and cons of the process, it is magnificent and I’m desperately rooting for you to win.
