Today the, The Times / Chicken House Children’s Fiction Competition Shortlist, was announced, sadly I’ve not made the top five, but I'm still extremely pleased to have got on the longlist! So I’d like to send big, congratulations to the lucky six authors who make the shortlist - and wish you all the best of luck for the next round.
Here are the Shortlisters
Good luck to you all!
Commiserations, but you did well to get so far.ReplyDelete
Hi Sue, thanks - I'm totally thrilled to have got to the Longlist! Just have to knuckle down with the next book! :)Delete

This is from Hilly - also didn't get through to the shortlist either, so commiserations. I know how it feels but like you said, a great buzz to have got this far. (Especially as they said there were about 1,000 entries.) I've entered one of my books every year and this is the first year that I've managed to get anywhere, so I must be getting better at writing!
Good luck with your writing, all the best,
Thanks for stopping by, and nice to meet another longlister! Yes it's is such a excellent achievement, and it was a great buzz. Actually i still grin when I think about it! Sad we didn't make the shortlist, but there is next year...we'll just have to make sure that the next books are even better! :)
