Guess what came by email:

On behalf of the Science Fiction and Fantasy Association of New Zealand
Inc. we write to advise that you have been successful in getting onto
the final ballot for the 2012 Sir Julius Vogel Awards in the Best New Talent Category.

Your work Guardians of the Shimmer – DreamTime has also been successful in securing a Best Youth Novel placing.

The vote will occur at AuContraire, to be held in Wellington from 12 – 14 July 2013.

Will definitely be doing all I can to get down to Wellington mid July.
Thanks to all who sent in votes for me – cross fingers and toes time now
