Grants for the Win

Got back from spending the Easter weekend down south (my son caught an octopus. We had to eat it ...) to learn that Grants Pass had won Best Edited Publication in this year's Australian Shadows Awards. That's a reasonably deal in Australian horror circles, so huge congrats to Amanda and Jennifer who obviously did a sterling job putting the book together. You can, of course, snag a copy for yourself either from Amazon* or from Drive Thru Horror if you prefer ebooks to paper.

(Incidentally, one of my older stories, Just Us, is also available now in e-format. You can pick up a copy of the Voices anthology in which it first appeared here.)

Meanwhile I've almost finished a submission for another Apex books project ... I'm just waiting on someone to authenticate my Sarf Lahndahn hoody-speak. It's been a while since I've lived in the UK, and there's a very real danger of my dialogue sounding woefully dated. Can't have that.

And lastly, big thumbs up for the new Doctor Who. Spent a good couple of hours after watching it grinning like a complete idiot. Hurrah!

*I've just spotted that someone on Amazon is selling a used copy of Grants Pass for nearly 30 quid! Plus postage!
