    Is it just me, or has the removal of Government funding actually given the Queensland Literary Awards a much higher public profile?

    Does anyone else have trouble creating an account, or even signing in via FB on the Pozible site?

    BTW 30 seems a lot to get a thankyou. Kickstarter typically gives you an eBook for 5 – 20 dollars.
