News & Updates

Quentin Mills-Fenn of Winnipeg’s Uptown Review says Snowmen, our latest 3-Day Books release, is “really quite good… Sedore has produced a gripping and satisfying story which betrays no clue to its origins.”

Congratulations to long-time Vancouver entrant Christopher Meades, who made the 2007 3DN shortlist with his novel, The Three Fates of Henrik Nordmark. An expanded version of his original draft has been released by ECW Press and is now available in bookstores. Read an excerpt at the ECW website.

And we’ve heard two more 3-Day Novel success stories! Sandy Lender found a home for her 2009 3DN manuscript, Problems on Eldora Prime, with NWP, and Lisa Naraine expanded her 2008 entry, The Package, and the revised version was recently accepted by Transit Medias. Congratulations to both contest veterans.
