For Immediate Release
3-Day Novel Contest winner, Timothy J. Anderson says that Science Fiction Authors Deserve More Credit.
[Calgary, AB, March 31, 2007]
Timothy J. Anderson, author of Resisting Adonis, is the winner of the 2007 Book Television Three-Day Novel reality TV series.
In an email interview conducted earlier this week, Mr. Anderson revealed his thoughts on how it felt to win...
"Well, mixed. There were two science fiction manuscripts in the competition, and I am sorry to say mine wasn't one of them. Good science fiction is hard to write. SF writers don't get enough credit for how hard they work to make SF live on the edge. I knew I couldn't do a good enough job of SF in 3 days."
"I'm thrilled to have won, but I also have a great deal of respect for the work other writers turned in."
"One of the prizes is a writing retreat at the Banff Centre courtesy of the Writers Guild of Alberta. The Centre is where I wrote the first draft of "Resisting Adonis" ... It will be a joy to return to the scene of those crimes and spend a week working on a project."
