I've got no hopes of being on the list... but I entered mostly for the feedback, so I'm most interested in when that's coming out!  ;D

The Entry Plus stories will be started after we announce the winners. We kept that part of each entry secret so we don't know which stories are normal entries and which are entry plus until after we're done judging. :)

So only 5 more names to appear, so I have a 1 in 1,675 chance...not sure my nerves will survive today!

Congrats to all who've made it so far. I'm not holding my breath, but would like to see a fellow Pirate go through. :)
Not likely, having one is already great. :)

Thanks for the info, Autumn. Much appreciated.

Don't be so glum. You have at least a 5 in 1675 chance!

Any idea when the last 5 titles/authors in the long list will be posted?

Never could get my head round time travel!

Anyway, it's here, the last 5 titles/author's and the complete long list...

http://fantasywritingcontest.com/2012/10/longlist-66/

Congratulations to all 30 author's who've made it onto the list. My entry never made it, disappointed but then rejection is part of the writing game, just have to pick the story up, dust it off and see if it'll fit somewhere else. Plus side is I opted for Entry Plus, so I have the detailed feedback to look forward to so can see where I went wrong, what I can do to improve.

And there's always next year!

Aye. My entry didn't make the cut, either, but congratulations to all that made it anyhow. Phil and I will be on top next year.  ;)
Oh, I have a blog. http://dullboredom.wordpress.com/

Check it out, if you've got the time. Much appreciated.

Writer. Read my free, serialized story Radio Silence and vote to keep it free and serialized!

Congrats to everyone who made the list! :) And thanks to everyone who entered. :) I loved reading your stories and I can't wait to see what all of you come up with for next year!

Congrats to all who made the list!  I didn't, so I'm going to allow myself one hour of self-pitying overindulgence in chocolate while muttering how the writing life sucks and why do I bother, then I'll start thinking about next year's entry.  :)

(And, of course, look forward to getting the entry-plus critique, which by turns excites and terrifies me...).

Ah well, I didn't make the list. Thanks for the opportunity though, the contest pushed me to write a story I probably would have never written otherwise.

Congrats to the authors who made the list!

Congratulations to all 30! :) Now the sieving will be even more painful. ;)

Not being in the Top 30 doesn't mean that your story sucked - there were about 200 awesome stories and they just couldn't take them all. :)
