A nice surprise on my birthday a book made the top ten in Earlyworks comp

edited January 2011 in - Writing Tales
I had an email to say my book for children made the top ten in their recent competition and I win a signed book from one of the author judges.
And it's my birthday today too so that's brill!
They said my book proved attractive to the readers and there is feedback for me to consider to revise and then try with agencies. So I will!


  • Happy Birthday and congratulations! Double celebration now :-)
    Also good about the positive feedback too.
  • Great feedback and great news. Congratulations and a happy birthday too.

    Good luck with the revision Kateyanne and I hope you find an agent who'll take you on.
  • That's brilliant, kateyanne.
  • Well done and Happy Birthday! :)
  • A Two in One celebration - well done
  • Happy Birthday, Kateyanne.

    I think I'm allowed to say Congrats, because I wasn't involved in the final judging...
  • Well done and happy birthday.
