Well, Guys, against all the odds I made the short list! Of course, I'm excited but at the same it feels a bit daunting. I really didn't think I had a chance, there were some really big names and publishers on the long list. But this competition is supposed to reflect reader tastes rather than those of the critics, so I'm guessing it's done its job on that front. There are still some great names there though and a variation in genres. As the commentators are already saying, it's going to be interesting x

Today has seen the review of Neil Gaiman's The Ocean at the End of the Lane http://www.theguardian.com/books/booksblog/2013/sep/09/not-booker-prize-neil-gaiman-ocean-lane and as stated, I'm up next. To say I'm nervous at this stage, is an understatement! x
