My novel in progress - Salted - was chosen as one of the four finalists in the Faber/Book Tokens Not Yet Published Award, and I won Waterstone's 2009 Bookseller's Bursary. My short stories have won prizes and been published in many lovely places (amongst them - PANK, elimae, Neon, Pulp.Net, 3:AM, Dogzplot, FRiGG, CRT, Kill Author, Flashquake, Foundling Review, See You Next Tuesday, Red Peter) I review for Waterstone's Books Quarterly, Pulp Net & The Short Review, and have written non-fiction articles for a variety of publications, including Writer's Market.

I was glad of the welcome though Barry, I'd hate you to think I wasn't!

And, hi Corey, thanks for the good wishes.

Corey Zeller – Nov 15, 2008

What's up, Sara? Hope things are going well.

Sara Crowley – Nov 14, 2008

I thank you for the welcomes. Is it a little weird that the 3 of you all said exactly the same thing? Is it a fictionaut rule?


I am glad to be here, and look forward to exploring and hopefully contributing.
