We sincerely hope that you'll enjoy the books on this list when they publish; these were the proposals that most inspired and excited us. (Although there were many, many others that could also have made wonderful books: if we ever figure out how to publish more of this work without diluting the series too much, we'll let you know!)
I'll post again very shortly about the Competition results.
There are still dozens of you who sent in proposals that ended up being turned down, and then requested feedback. I'm way behind on that, for which I can only apologise but I will respond to all of you before the end of September.
And finally: a massive Thank You to everybody who's taken part in, and helped out with, this process over the past several months - it's been a pleasure.
