It's always nice when the first of the month brings some good news! And this came after 12 so it's not a joke... but it seems that My Mother Was An Upright Piano has been shortlisted in the Best Story Collection section of Sabotage's Saboteur's Indie Lit awards. I had no idea it had even been entered, so that's doubly exciting! MMWAUP faces stiff competition from Ashley Stokes, Laury A. Egan, Tony Williams, and Superbard, but just getting to the shortlist is delight enough. It is decided by public vote, so click here to find out more. I am not the sort of author who asks people to vote for her book, that doesn't really sit well with me. But if you fancy joining in, then a vote for any indie lit book is a good thing! I haven't heard of several of these collections so will be checking them out myself. Thank you, whoever nominated MMWAUP, you've made my April!
