Fine list

I am overjoyed and (unusually!) lost for words to discover my unpublished novel Some Things the English is a finalist in the Dundee International Book Prize, which is to say I am in the top two - many thanks to the judges, "Radio 4 presenter Kirsty Lang, creative writer Neil Gaiman, publisher Scott Pack, literary agent Felicity Blunt and writer, critic, reviewer and programmer Stuart Kelly" and Director Anna Day! 

The opening chapter to my novel and the others shortlisted - a fine list - can be downloaded and read for free on Kindle from Amazon.

You're going to win if Neil Gaiman has anything to say about it. I totally think he would love the way you write.
