On the longlist

A great start to the week with the news that Flip has been longlisted for the prestigious 2012 Branford Boase Award for debut children’s novelists. The award recognises the editors as well as the authors and so I’m delighted that my wonderful editor at Walker Books, Mara Bergman, is similarly in contention.
I’m also pleased to see Cat Clarke on there for Entangled (Quercus). Cat and I met last autumn when we ran some writing workshops for the Ilkley Literature Festival and I liked her and her novel very much – it’s one of those books that make you wish you’d had the idea first. Congratulations, too, to a fellow Walker author, Rebecca Lloyd, who has been longlisted for Halfling.
