Novel #32

Yep, another novel… But, before then, let’s update the rejections! Spandex Dreams was rejected because (and I quote) “we feel it would be too difficulty and would ruin the integrity of the story to eliminate the Australianisms throughout.” And Voyage Home was short-listed but failed to make the final 5 in a YA novel competition.
