Short List Announced!
« on: September 30, 2012, 02:51:29 PM »
Today we announced part one of six of our short list picks! The remaining list will be revealed throughout the rest of this week. Plus we will be announcing the cover art towards the middle of the week! You can read all about it at the Fantasy Writing Contest website!

Remember this is not the complete list, nor is it in any particular order. The rest of list will be revealed in small bits throughout the week. Congrats to those who made it! :)

Just read the blog post on the Long List and want to say a big "thank you" to the judges on my part for deciding to post the list of folks still under consideration. For me, the disappointment of making it through early cuts but not the final cut is nothing to the ambiguity of never knowing where you stood in the process. And if I don't make it through even the first cut, well, the sooner the uncertainty is over, the better.
And now, back to hoping my name appears on the long list sometime this week...

This has now got very real, will be looking forward to seeing each days blog posts with a mix of excitement and fear.

Well done to Vasso Christou, Rose Taylor, Steve Erdal, Leslianne Wilder and Miah Saunders.

Keep in mind if you didn't make the short list, that doesn't mean your story wasn't good. We had over 100 stories that we pulled for our long list. Getting down to 30 was really hard and getting it down to six is going to be even harder! :)

Congratulations to the first five! I, for one, think it's a great idea to release the list of those who made it this far. Crossing my fingers that my name appears sometime this week! I also know that, whether or not I win, I'll be buying a copy, just to see what it took to make it in. Hopefully everyone else will do the same, so that would be 1700 copies sold!

What sort of time will each days shortlist be posted? Or will you keep the times random to mess with our heads  ;)

Most. Nail. Biting. Week. Ever.

Well done to all taking part - you created a world, populated it with characters and told their story. Be proud.

Congrats, Idlewilder!  :D
Anyone else from the forums there yet? (Besides pornokitsch, who apparently wrote most, if not all, stories in the short list. ;))

Somone already said this, but - this is going to be a wonderfully stressful 'what if' kind of week.

And congrats to the first 10. May you accept my friend request after i search you out on fb  ;)
