I have entered "Calvus" in a number of competitions as well as having submitted it to numerous agents and publishers. Finally, it was one of the winning entries in Morris Publishing Australia's writing competition. I am informed that the judges were unanimous.
Winners receive a publishing contract and I've now signed and returned mine. Morris is a new company so we'll have to see how it all goes but it's certainly good news and a step in the right direction for this book. Once published, it will be my second published novel. Wow!
