So Ariadne, I Love You won best novella at the Ditmar Awards on Saturday. Absolutely bonkers when you look at the books it was up against. I managed to pull it together enough to give a semi-coherent acceptance speech – this time not just a long list of happy expletives.

Congrats to all the nominees and this year’s winners. But an extra solid shout-out to J.S. Breukelaar who won best novel for The Bridge. A twofer for Meerkat Press!

How fkn chuffed do these kats look?
