I just got a letter in the mail to say that Bound was given a Highly Commended in the FAW Christina Stead Award presented by the Fellowship of Australian Writers!
It really is an amazing honour and I’m a little bit amazed BOUND made it so far, considering it was probably up against some pretty strong competition! It also makes me feel pretty nifty as an author.
Unfortunately as the ceremony is in April and because of commitments (RWDU in March and Supanova in April) I won’t be able to physically get to Victoria from Queensland [without my work killing me] to receive it. However, it will be posted and I will show some pictures! Squee!
