Just as I was getting excited about the cover of ‘We That Are Left’ and it was sinking in that I have a new book out in 2014, when ‘Eden’s Garden’ jumped back into my life with a bang. Not only was it chosen for the 99p Amazon Summer Sale, racing up the charts to the heady heights of number 5 in the ‘Cultural History’ category, but it has also been chosen to be in the running for The People’s Book Prize!
Tatiana Wilson, the founder of The People’s Book Prize, (whose Patron is Frederick Forsyth CBE, no less) came up with the idea as it is her ambition that new authors are given equal opportunity in the marketplace, based purely on their talent and ability. A perfect vehicle to discover writers’ talent voted by the public, raise the profile of libraries and celebrate reading.
I am honoured and fearsomely excited, and I shall now throw modesty to the winds and and hustle for your votes.
If you enjoyed ‘Eden’s Garden’ and would like to vote for it, please follow this link to ‘Eden’s Garden’ in The People’s book prize:
