My first prizegiving!

Delighted to go to the Frome Short Story Competition prizegiving last Sunday. My story – The King’s Bed – not only made it onto the National Longlist (out of 450 entrants) but was also chosen as second place in the local authors’ category. I got some great feedback from author and judge Maria McCann, plus some top tips from writing legend Peter Lovesey and agent Jane Judd. And a free lunch 🙂

All in all, a grand day out. I think the story will be published on the Frome Short Story Comp website, so I’ll keep you posted. We also started hatching a plan with local actress Tracy Ashford about starting up A Book At Bedtime on FromeFM. Watch this space….!

Next weekend: Bristol Short Story Prize ceremony. Tis the season of handshakes and hospitality!
