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.
