The People’s Book Prize

Several weeks ago my publisher, Ant Press, submitted The Rise of Agnil to The People’s Book Prize Awards. This is a national competition aimed at finding, supporting & promoting new and undiscovered works. With Founding Patron, Dame Beryl Bainbridge and Patron, Frederick Forsyth, this is quite a ‘big deal’ for me. So imagine the huge excitement at Agnil’s Worlds this morning when I found out that The Rise of Agnil will be showcased on the People’s Book Prize web site  for three months from the 1st December. It means that the book has been accepted into the awards and would get through to the next round on the strength of public votes. I guess I will be canvassing for votes like crazy from that day!your-vote-counts-300x251
