I’m delighted and a bit shocked to announce that Ember and Ash has won the Aurealis Award for Best Fantasy Novel of 2011. Thank you to everyone concerned with the awards (especially the judges, of course!) and to all those who have found ways of congratulating me over the past few days.
Congratulations also to the other winners: see http://www.aurealisawards.com/media-release_winners2011.pdf for the details. I was particularly chuffed when old friend Christopher Cheng won the Best Children’s Fiction award for Sounds Spooky.
