Embarrassing? Definitely.

I don’t have an ’embarrassed’ photo to hand, but I certainly should have.

Some very kind person sent me interview questions – which I have diligently (and hopefully in an interesting manner) answered. Only problem – I have managed to detach the questions from a note of who sent them! So someone out there is thinking that I’m either very rude in not responding, or very lazy in not having done it yet. Either way I’m embarrassed (seriously embarrassed).

So if you are the kind person, please, please get in touch – comment here or catch me on FB.

People’s Book Prize –

I have just been awarded the Beryl Bainbridge Award for Best First Time Author with Turn of the Tide as part of the People’s Book Prize! Very chuffed.

With thanks to all who voted and especially who commented on Turn of the Tide’s Book Page. It is the comments that I’ll remember when the competition itself is old news.

And for anyone who did comment – if you have read the whole book I’d be really grateful if you could cut and paste your comments onto Amazon as a review – please don’t if you’ve only read part of it – in fairness to folk browsing on Amazon.
