Coventry (again!)

GLORIA UK final cover 1I’m delighted to announce that Twenty Questions for Gloria has been shortlisted for the 2017 Coventry Inspiration Book Awards. It’s the second time I’ve been in contention for this award – one of the bigger regional children’s and YA prizes – following Flip‘s shortlisting in 2012.

Gloria is competing in the “Simply the Book” category for novels aimed at readers aged 13 and upwards. Voting begins in the autumn, with hundreds of students at schools throughout the Coventry area taking part. I’m up against some excellent YA authors and some terrific books. Here’s the shortlist in full:

Eve Ainsworth Crush
Martyn Bedford Twenty Questions for Gloria
Moira Fowley-Doyle The Accident Season
Nick Lake Whisper to Me
Philip Reeve Railhead
Dave Shelton Thirteen Chairs
Jon Walter My Name’s Not Friday
Matt Whyman Bad Apple
