...Or, MY STORY IS GOING TO BE PUBLISHED...!!!!!
Ok, so this isn't much of a blog-post, more of a I CANNOT BELIEVE THIS HAS HAPPENED-post.
And I really don't have much to say as I am still Totally Reeling but, back in November, I entered the Mumsnet/Walker Books Bedtime Story Competition with my story, 'Celeste Who Sang to the Stars'.
And on January 28th I made it onto The Shortlist of 20 authors.
(It's not The Oscars - obviously - but at this point I would like to thank the judges who compiled The Shortlist. Thank You.)
|It's tiny print, but trust me I'm there :)|
The Shortlisted Stories were then sent to Mr Michael Rosen for him to select the Final Ten for Publication.
On February 25th the Ten Winners were announced and ... (I realise this won't come as a shock, given the title of this post) ... I was one of them!
Excited isn't even in it. I am sooooo thrilled :)
(At this point I would like to say a huuuuuge thank you to Michael Rosen - can't begin to tell you what this means to me).
|I Heart M for Michael, M for Mumsnet and |
upside-down W for Walker Books
All 10 stories will be illustrated and published by Walker Books in 'The Mumsnet Book of Bedtime Stories' later in the year . . .
. . . and I think I'm going to pop :)
*Congratulations to the other Authors I will be sharing the book with. I'm really looking forward to reading your stories.
