And today the finalists for the Aurealis Awards were announced, and Tender Morsels is up there for the Best Fantasy Novel, together with Alison Goodman's The Two Pearls of Wisdom, Sylvia Kelso's Amberlight, Juliet Marillier's Heir to Sevenwaters and Karen Miller(hi Karen - yee-haw!)'s The Riven Kingdom.
Also...also...the alien-prostitute story I wrote for Jack Dann's Dreaming Again, 'The Fifth Star in the Southern Cross' is up for the Best SF Short Story Aurealis. And my mates on that list are Simon Brown, Nathan Burrage (go, Nathan!), Trent Jamieson (the thrice-finalised) and Tansy Rayner Roberts, who named her daughter after the Aurealises and is now being rewarded with the first of many shortlistings.
Congratulations, everyone! We're all over here.
