Awards, Awards, Awards!

Hey, guess what Gang!?

Both of my books have recently been listed for brilliant book awards!

UKLA AwardsFirstly, FLYAWAY has been longlisted for the lovely and prestigious UK Literacy Award. This is a fab and important award, voted for by teachers and with the aim of picking a book that uses language in a particularly evocative or imaginative way. I loved playing with the writing and imagery of Flyaway…it was what I enjoyed most about this book! As I said over on my other blog post, I’m now crossing my fingers that my quiet, feathered book makes it to the next stage.  There are wings inside this book, ones just itching to stretch and fly.

Stolen - Inky Awards 2010 LogoThe other exciting news is that STOLEN has been shortlisted for the Inky Awards.  This is brilliant news as these awards are absolutely wonderful.  They are voted for by teens so are a really good indication of what you guys out there really like to read.  I’m so honoured to have made it onto this shortlist (and with such other fab books for company too!) And I’m really very grateful. THANK YOU kind and lovely judges.

Now …. If  YOU feel like voting for STOLEN to WIN this amazing award…you can!

Check out the voting on the insideadog website. There are great prizes to win if you vote too! You can vote for it here!

Anyway, I’m meant to be writing Book 3, instead of getting so excited about my other two books that I want to jump around my living room like a pogo stick. Must get back to the tappety-tap…

Wishing you delight and dancing,

    That’s awesome news! Congrats!

    When’s book 3 due? And will it come with a free jungle vine as a bookmark instead of a feather?
