Well, at Bridge House we finished reading our competition entries at last. It was close. We had a futuristic setting with a story of everyday people facing the same sorts of problems that we do. We also had an hilarious if slightly unbelievable romp. Both were well written and both would need some editing.
Both judges came down slightly in favour of the futuristic one. It’s very difficult to establish exactly why. Maybe a little more believable despite its futuristic setting? Maybe slightly less editing needed?
It just shows that in this competitive world much actually depends on what else is available.
My publishing partner has just had the thrill of contacting the people and letting them know.
So, soon we’ll be editing another novel and preparing it for publication.
Another day in the life of a small publisher.
