Once again, it’s been a long time since I have blogged. I do have an excuse, though. Honest. I’ve been working hard on a new book. Things don’t always go according to plan and I’ve been doing more deleting recently than I’d like to, but I’ll tell you about that later. I actually came here to tell you about something else.
My most recent book for younger readers, BOY X, has been nominated for a couple of awards!
The Coventry Inspiration Book Award 2017 and The Essex Book Award 2017.
It’s always a huge honour to be nominated for these kinds of awards because the winner is
chosen by the readers!! The Coventry Inspiration Book Award runs an on-line voting system; the book with the least votes is knocked out and then voting starts all over again. If you’d like to vote for BOY X, you can find the information right here.
The Essex Book Awards works in a different way. There’s a website where readers from the various schools involved can leave reviews, and the winner is announced on a special day in Chelmsford for all the participating schools. If you’d like to see some of the great reviews the children have written, you’ll find them right here.
Keep reading . . . it makes you smart.
