Someone rang me from America to tell me the news but my voicemail cut out part way through the message. Good job they followed it up with an email to confirm the details.
I was sworn to secrecy because some of the other categories hadn't had their scores finalised but a list of finalists has been published on a few blogs now so I think I'm free to talk about it.
Basically I received my two crit sheets back via email a week or so ago and was given until 10th September to edit my MS for final judging (by a US agent and editor). I finally finished the edits this evening and the first 35 pages of my novel are electronically winging their way to the organisers as we speak.
The final results will be announced in November so cross your fingers for me :o)
