Just found out* my novel OLEANNA is a semi-finalist for novel-in-progress in 2009 Faulkner-Wisdom. WOOOOOT! Yes, the same Oleanna that I've been angsting about all summer :)
Edited to add: turns out they had it listed wrong at first, it's actually on the shortlist for finalists. Cool!
* Apologies to my friends who have seen this elsewhere.
