We can’t be more proud of our publisher at Twelfth Planet Press for taking out Best Non-Professional category at the World Fantasy Awards. It’s a tribute to Alisa’s hard work and strength of conviction about what she is doing, and to her tireless helpers including Terri Sellen, Amanda and Tehani Wessely amongst many others.
As you know Glitter Rose is published by TPP and some international readers are getting the chance to dip into it as it found its way into WFC con bags last weekend.
I’m very thrilled to say that my publisher for Glitter Rose, Twelfth Planet Press, has earned a World Fantasy Award nomination in the category of Special Award, Non Professional. This is an outstanding achievement for an Australian publisher, especially for Alisa Krasnostein who essentially runs TPP as a second job. I’m delighted at this acknowledgement of the quality of her work. Not only has she showcased great Australian talent but her Twelve Planets series will become very important to the world of literature, as it continues to give female SF writers a voice.
Congrats Alisa – I’m very proud to be associated with you!
