Prize?

Just to inform you that Messages from the Lost Continent has been entered to compete with numerous other books in the 2007 Lulu Blooker Prize. It's one of those few prizes where you don't have to pay anything to submit your work, and the Grand Prize is an actual $10,000 (before taxes). However, the competition is tough, and it's not one of those prizes where the public can vote, so I can't ask my handful of readers to vote for me, and the book will have to make it through the process all on its own merits.

The shortlist will be announced on 12 March. I don't really care about the prize, but I'd really want to be on the shortlist. Sigh.

Me too, I've entered "The God Interviews" (in the comics category). Wishing us both luck.

I suppose it goes without saying that your readers are all rooting for "Messages"; but I thought I'd say it anyway.

Interesting contest, by the way.
