First Book Contest Update

Filed under: General — Neil Aitken @ 5:41 pm

Just received a letter from the University of Wisconsin Press informing me that while my manuscript, The Lost Country of Sight, was not selected for publication, it was a strong semi-finalist in the competition! I’m pretty stoked. It’s nice knowing that it’s making an impression out there.

I’m finishing up a new revision on the manuscript today and hope to mail out the next batch of book contest submissions tonight. Hopefully there’s even better news coming soon.
