Announcing the longlist for the LDC Award 2019!

Congratulations to Lilith Ai, Natalie d'Arbeloff, Camille Aubry, Niki Banados, Alice Clarke, Maria Flower, Jennifer Gloster, Caroline Grebbell, Sophia Luu Amelie Persson, Edith Pritchett, Irina Richards, Teresa Robertson, Jeeti Singh, Zara Slattery, Myfanwy Tristram and Anja Uhren!

My name's on the longlist! Shortlist to be announced later this month and winners TBA at the end of March.  The brief was to submit just 12 pages of a graphic novel-in-progress which will eventually be at least 200 pages. 

So that's what I sent, Double Entendre, the graphic novel I've  been working on sporadically for quite a while.  It's still got a long way to go but would certainly benefit from a boost of encouragement such as this.

 Mine is on the second row, first on the left. These are not the final books (obviously, since the Award is for work in progress) and only contain the few sample pages submitted to the judges.

Below is my temporary cover. It will probably change before the book is finished.

Wishing you well, Natalie.

Natalie d'Arbeloff said...

Thank you Bruce.

Tom said...

Ha! Ha!

Tom, I'm so sorry! I've only just noticed that I mistook you for Bruce in my reply above, and then didn't respond to your "Ha! Ha!"

The trouble is that I hardly check in to this space anymore because it is usually so deserted. You znd Bruce, and sometimes Vincent, are kind enough to stop by sometimes - please forgive the temporary mixup. I copy posts to my Facebook page and it can get a bit confusing.

Thanks and all the very best to you.
