Last chance to vote!

invitation

I got back from holiday a few days ago to find my invitation to the awards ceremony for The People’s Book Prize waiting for me. It’s so exciting to even be a part of this! Next Wednesday, the 27th May, I will be heading to London in my posh frock, carrying a copy of The Rise of Agnil. invitationAs you can see the awards are being broadcast live on Sky News, starting at 20:20.

The voting session for finalists has now begun and ends on Wednesday the 27th. Even if you voted in the first round, you can now vote again on the special finalists page of The People’s Book Prize web site . You will be directed to register on the site and sent a password. The whole process is fairly painless and should only take a minute or two of your time. I’d really appreciate the support of all friends of Agnil. Please help her to win this important book award! It means a lot to me too. 🙂

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
