Greetings Brave Adventurers,
Its not quite a win, but must be worth at least a brag; my fantasy novel White Eyes was given a Highly Commended by the Australian Society of Authors in their Emerging Writer’s Mentorship Program. It was the only fantasy novel to make the list.
This year saw over 250 entries into what is a highly-contested competition. 12 mentorships worth over $2000 are awarded, as well as 5 Highly Commended prizes (who receive over $500 worth of courses and mentoring).
The competition is only open to those with a completed first draft of their novel and judged based on the first chapter of the novel and the synopsis.
If you’d like to read more about the competition, check it out here.
If you’d like to know more about my novel, White Eyes, you can check out the trailer I entered into the Pitch Your Book Australia competition, where it placed in the top 10. (Nope, I’m never going to make trailers for a living…I know!)
Stay tuned for more about my novel, as I will be seeking traditional publication.
