You're so productive. It must feel good to have your creativity appreciated.

Many congratulations, Rachel! Fish is highly contested (not sure that's entirely the phrase I'm looking for, but I mean there are always hundreds of entries), so getting noticed among that lot is a great achievement.

And, hey, if a longlisting's good enough for a Booker shortlistee...

Rachel Fenton said...

It does feel good, Kass! Thank you x

Thanks, Dan! Fish get entries into he thousands - must check what the figure was for this comp - so this longlisting can at least provide a benchmark for the quality of my writing. It's a story I've had for years, too, so I'm really happy it got somewhere.

I'm not sure Moore will be as pleased as I am with the longlisting, but I hope she's not offended my me pleased-ness!
