This is the news I was teasing in my last update!
On April 30th, I received notification that I was the spring recipient of the Canadian Science Fiction and Fantasy Association (CSFFA, AKA the Aurora Awards) Professional Development Grant!
Now I can resume work with Suzy to revise my novel in a more focused and accountable way. W00t!!
Sorry, the cheque’s already been deposited and I forgot to take a picture before I went to the bank.
The CSFFA asked that I hold off until they made the official announcement in their next newsletter. Now they have, so I can spread the word!
In case you’re curious, there are two submission periods in the year, spring and fall. So, If you’re interested you can find out more here: the CSFFA Professional Development Grant.
You won’t know if you can succeed unless you apply.
So, maybe go do that. The next submission period opens June 1st.
Much happy dancing is happening.
It’s good to have good news.
Until next time, be safe and stay well; be kind and stay strong. The world needs your stories!
