Patricia Wood's novel, Lottery, has been short listed for the 13th Orange Prize for Fiction - and the first time author is a favourite to win!
This is so exciting... I posted about Patricia's remarkable achievements last year. It was only when I started this blog that I discovered who she was and that her first novel had sold; prior to that I knew of her simply as Orion, one of the regulars over at Miss Snark's blog.
Way to go, Orion! I'm rooting for you!
