This is a huge shout out to the www, cupped hands, belting from my belly. Why? This week has seen the shortlists of two huge short story prizes and Unthank (my publisher) have published authors on both of em. CD Rose for the Times EFG and Angela Readman for the Costa Short Story prize. You can read more about the Costa finalists, including Angela, here.
In addition, Unthank have just announced that they’re publishing Sharonville, Sharon Zink’s debut novel. Warm loveliness to the writers and a big yay to everyone and Unthank. They’ve been bloody brave, stuck by their literary morals and published what they loved.
Fingers crossed for everyone and congratulations Sharon!
p.s. and the week before (ish) AJ Ashworth won a society of authors award.
