A very quick post to rant a bit more about the absolute amazingness of being nominated for the Carnegie Award 2015 with’The Girl Who Walked On Air’. Yes, I really did just write that last sentence.
This is an extremely prestigious award, voted for by the people who know books best of all- librarians. Just to be nominated is a massive honour for a newbie writer like me. The nominations list totals a whopping 93 books and reads like dream. There’s such a tasty mix of experience, experimentation, debuts and the traditional. Massive congrats to everyone on the list and to the librarians who voted for our books. I for one wouldn’t want to be deciding the longlist!
