Governor General’s Literary Awards - Fiction 2009

14 October 2009 in The Mistress of Nothing

GGLA2009HeaderTurns out I’m on the shortlist for the GGs!!!  Five books on the list.  This was totally unexpected, as unexpected as the Giller longlisting, but to go straight onto the shortlist… well… really, such good news indeed.  My publisher and agents are as excited as me.  My sister e-mailed me that she was crying into her keyboard.  We wish my mum was here so we could shout down the phone at her in excitement.  This is really just such good news, I can’t believe it.

Hello Kate

Congratulations on being shortlisted for the GGs

Your Mom and Dad and my Mom would all be very proud of you

Am sure you will be interviewed on CBC before long so will keep my ears open for that.

Best wishes
Ellen Tremblay

Thanks for this Ellen, much appreciated!

It would have been great to have had the chance to celebrate this with Auntie Emma and my mum and dad!

Yours - Kate
