‘For Those In Peril On The Sea’ Named As A Finalist In ForeWord Firsts Winter 2013 Competition

1 May

For Those In Peril On The Sea

For Those In Peril On The Sea available from http://www.amazon.com/For-Those-Peril-The-ebook/dp/B00BRLF8PS/

The finalists for the ForeWord Firsts Winter 2013 competition have just been announced and I’m very pleased to be able to tell you that For Those In Peril On The Sea is one of only five novels on the list.

The ForeWord Firsts competition is run quarterly and is for independently published novels from new writers.

The winner will be announced on the 30th of May 2013, so it will be a nervous month until I find out if it will come out on top or not. Either way, it is good to see a novel that combines my twin loves of zombies and sailing being given some mainstream recognition.

      Thanks for the congrats, Jack. I’m really stoked about this. It’s nice to see a ‘zombie’ book competing well with what would generally be considered more mainstream literature (and it’s always nice to get some recognition for all those hours put in writing it!).
