People’s Book Prize Final

At long last! Voting is open in the People’s Book Prize final. Turn of the Tide is one of 12 finalists in the fiction section – scary stuff. The voting will close at 10.00am (BST) on Wednesday 28th and the winners will be declared that evening at a ceremony in Stationers’ Hall.

Wish me luck!

How nice is that?

First debut novel ‘event’ tomorrow in Blackwells, Edinburgh, http://www.cityofliterature.com/whats-on-results.aspx?sec=5&pid=23&item=3901 discussing ‘Writing History’ as part of the ‘Previously’ Festival.

Then official book launch in Waterstones, Edinburgh on Thursday… a little bit scary…

And an event in Eyemouth next week as part of Book Week Scotland. 1http://www.facebook.com/events/268168133295152/

I am delighted to have received messages from Cathy Kelly, Anne O’Brien and Jeffrey Archer – People’s Novelist Competition judges – sending me ‘best wishes’ for the book launch.

How nice is that?
