My blog posts are like buses – you wait for ages and then, suddenly, two come along at once! Regular readers will be aware that The Rise of Agnil was nominated for The People’s Book Prize a while ago and I spent a while twisting people’s arms to vote for the book. Well, it’s time to say a huge THANK YOU to everyone who did because the book has made it to the finals! It’s been a nail-biting few days as I’ve waited for the end of the month to pass, signalling the end of the voting session and rushed to the web site this morning to check. I don’t know if my publisher has been sent an email as she’s currently travelling but I have also sent her a message. I feel like I’m bursting at the seams with excitement!
To add a little more to the thrill, The Rise of Agnil has also reached the finals of The Wishing Shelf Independent Book Awards . The winners of this award will be announced in one month but I’ll have to wait until May to hear about The People’s Book Prize as there is one more voting session for another selection of books. Stay tuned in to catch the news!
