Twice Bitten

Just got hit with a double rejection from Bridgehouse. We’d sent them 2 stories – Deadly Reflection & Daughters of Annwn – for their young adult anthology. We already have a plan where they can go to next, so might see if they need tweaking before sending them out again. We have just emailed our werewolf story, Of Wolf and Man to Pill Hill Press for their werewolf anthology. We’ve had 3 stories rejected by them so far since Oct, so talons crossed it’ll be 4th time lucky.

We’ve just finished redrafting our novel Soul Asylum. Just as well really ‘cos on Tues we’ll find out whether we made it through to the next round of Brit Writers’ Award. We don’t know which of our pieces of work made it through this far, so we’d aimed to have SA fully polished by the final, which is in July. To celebrate we went to watch Cardiff Blues beat Munster in the Magners league. Unfortunately they didn’t get the bonus point win they needed to make it into the playoffs, but considering they’ve spent most of the season near the bottom of the league, it’s pretty damn good going.
