Sometime early this year I sent in some money and entered this contest. And then (as I have learned is wise) I forgot about it. An announcement showed up on my Facebook Author Page telling me Martin of Gfenn had been short-listed. Still, the short-list is pretty long so it’s probably a good idea to forget about it again. 🙂

  1. It is very worthy of congratulations just for getting on the short-list. In fact, it’s worth a hearty ‘bloody well-done!’ moment. So, there you are. I dips me ‘at and ‘opes for the best!

    • Who knows…but a few days ago I returned to the Schneebelis Come to America and research started magically falling into place which I find very (mystically?) encouraging. 🙂
