    I was sponsoring this award for a bit of PR and a bit of a laugh, but I am just after reading all the posts and I am astounded. Such amazing writers and such brilliant stories. I am genuinely so proud to be associated with this. I left a comment on any of the blogs where the option was still open – sorry if I missed you. See you all next week – keep it up – unreal.

    By the way – best of luck to the judges – this will be hard!!
