Leeds Book Award!

I just got home from a great trip away - Winchester SCBWI conference and Mass Book Launch, a writing/research trip to Keswick, and appearing at the Edinburgh Book Festival First Book Award party with authors SJ Watson and Allan Wilson..... and what did I find?


My house is a Disaster: new bathroom and old scattered throughout and none of it functional; thick layers of dust; total chaos.


But I was Happy Dancing because Slated has been shortlisted for the Leeds Book Award, 14-16 category! wahoo!


It is a great shortlist: 


14-16 Category

Phil Earle             Saving Daisy

Sarah Hammond   The Night Sky in my Head

Sam Hawksmoor   The Repossession

Edward Hogan       Daylight Saving

David Massey       Torn

Teri Terry              Slated


Voting closes Friday 26th April 2013 and the winner will be announced at an Award ceremony and celebration event on Thursday 23rd May.


Maybe the bathroom will be sorted by then...?
