Fanfares and Trainfares

The competition for the ARC giveaway of SISTERS RED by Jackson Pearce is closed. Many thanks to everyone who took the time and trouble to enter - not least because not only have I been reminded of some great fairytales but I've also been introduced to some smashing retellings.

However, because I only have one ARC there can only be one winner and the Random Number Generator has declared the winner to be:

anonymous aka Dot, from the AW cooler whose favourite fairy tale is Twelve Dancing Princesses and who nominated retellings by Jessica Day George and Diane Zahler

:throws confetti:

Dot, if you could email me at caroline_hooton AT yahoo DOT com, then I'll arrange for postage etc etc.

In other news, I went to my graduation ceremony today and can therefore officially call myself a graduate of City University with an MA in Creative Writing (Novels). All the photographs make me look like a technicolour bat and as is usual at these things, there was a lot of queuing and waiting and sweating in robes in return for 20 seconds of going up on stage and shaking hands with some strangers.

I also have a serious case of mortar-board hair.

But yes, the MA is now officially over and I can turn my thoughts to other qualifications that I might like to study. Am giving serious thought to a part-time Phd in creative writing starting in 2012, mainly because then I can put myself on an academic par with my sister who has a Phd in addition to a first class degree.

Competitive, moi?

Right, I need to do some quick research on scabbards.
