The East Midlands Book Award 2015

So, after a flurry of excited tweeting a few weeks ago, I thought I probably should mention here too that I have been shortlisted for the East Midlands Book Award 2015. This is one of the most exciting things that has ever happened. Well, I think so anyway. You can see the full shortlist and find out more information here:

In anticipation of the awards ceremony on the 30th June, there is going to be an authors’ panel next Thursday (18th June 2015) at West Bridgford Library:

The reason I am so excited about this award is that it is for “Fiction, Creative Non-Fiction, Poetry or Plays” – it is not a specific science fiction award so this is an opportunity to lay our genre before a wider audience.
