Turns out one of my short stories, Fall Down, has been nominated for StorySouth’s Million Writers Award by the good people at Bound Off.

As the name of the award suggests, there are one or two other people nominated so chances of picking up the $300 first prize are probably quite slim — gable end of a crisp slim. Still, it’s nice to be nominated and I’ll be using the next few weeks to perfect my magnanimous applause when the winner’s eventually announced.

Bound Off is a podcast publication so you can download an mp3 of me reading out the story, dodgy accent and all, from the site or iTunes.
