A.B.N.A

My romance novel, A Year and a Day is through to the second round of the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award. (Apologies if you've already heard, but I'm rather chuffed about this and couldn't keep quiet)

Any kind of good news, acceptance or success always spurs me on to send out more work and try other competitions. I think I'll look out for something to sent to The Fiction Desk. They pay £20 - £30 for accepted stories.
