A hearfelt and awed thanks to everyone who helped out on the great authonomy adventure. Last night at around 4.12am UAE time, I sat here and watched the screen change and Space get marked out as one of the five books selected to go to a Harper Collins editor.

I'm grinning like an idiot and I think you're all wonderful.

I'll be back to my normal snarky, irascible self by tomorrow: don't you worry.

Cheers, all!

Well done Alexander: your campaign was masterly.

Wanna do PR for T & T in November? 'Cos I certainly haven't got the time to do what you did - not if I actually want to get any writing done.

Keefie... it's not about the time, it's about what you do with it!

I'll slip in a few plugs, to be sure! :)

Blimey! So it's true, then. You can write a bit.... :-0

Top job, Macca. I'll have to read the bloody thing now to find out exactly what happened to the vibrating aid in Chapter 2. *snort*

Look forward to the serialization in Harper's & Queen. Oh...
