Hi everyone.

Well, SDFA is back, and with this return come the long awaited winners of the twelfth round of awards. Obviously, the delay in these is obvious, and for those who have seen the site recently, you’ll be aware that the site has been closed since October 2005 - nearly six months - it’s hard to believe.

I’m not happy that I had to close, nor am I happy that it has taken so long to get these awards awarded, or the next round together. That said; I am glad that I’ve come to a juncture that has allowed me to re open SDFA. I’m not starting again - it’s a straight forward continuation, with the exception of one thing - and that is that positions for judges will be open to apply for. To those of you who have offered to help out, you know who you are, and have been contacted already, to those interested in judging, just send me an email with the required info on it (see on site) and we’ll take it from there.

I’ve had a horrible 2006 so far, and we’re not far into the year, I’m not going to go into it, but I’ll be updating my LJ soon, for those who are interested in knowing what’s been going on.

I’m still planning on SDFA having three rounds a year. A Beginning, Middle and End, which comprise of two months of nominations and two months of judging in each. Obviously, as this round is starting in April instead of May, I’m just splitting the time up equally. If all goes to plan, which it should, Round Thirteen nominations will close in mid June, and winners will be announced just as Round Fourteen begins in September (check the site for dates).

As always, I’d like to extend my thanks for all of the support you have all given in the past, and continue to provide, and hope that you participate in this, the Thirteenth Round of Shadows & Dust Fanfic Awards.
