This is an excerpt from an e-mail I received from Barnardos early this year. It is in regard to my manuscript See No Evil: story of a war child.
I just wanted to let you know that your manuscript has not been successful in the great Aussie book prize. Apologies for the delay in getting back to you. We have only just received the news.
The judges were very impressed with your work. You made the final short list and I wish you all the very best with it.
