So, dreams really do come true! Okay, admittedly, I haven’t actually won anything. The winners will be announced on 1st April 2018 but until then, I’m thrilled to be a finalist in the Wishing Shelf Book Awards 2017. This may be as good as it gets in my writing career, so I’m certainly going to appreciate it while I can.
If you’re wondering how it was selected, the adult books (my book is in the adult fiction category) were chosen by two reading groups, one in London and one in Stockholm. The books were marked according to EDITING, THEME, STYLE and COVER and every book that was awarded over 30/40 was considered a finalist. So, many thanks to those people in the Wishing Shelf Book Awards London and Stockholm reading groups for awarding me over 30!
If you haven’t read it and you’d like to know what the fuss is about, a paperback copy is £5.00 and the ebook is £0.99 from Amazon and they can be purchased here
So, what’s the book about? Well, it pretty much describes itself on the cover as it is exactly one hundred stories and each one is exactly one hundred words (not including the title which I’ve tried to restrict to two words) and they offer glimpses into the lives of people who lived one hundred years ago during the Great War. It’s not a history book, but the stories are based on real events and sometimes real people. It is my tribute to them.
If you’d like to check out the reviews first, it has 29 reviews – 27 of them are 5star reviews and 2 of them are 3star reviews. You can find the reviews here on Amazon
I’ve been told that tissues are also needed but I’m sure you’ll have some of those already.
If you buy the book please consider leaving an honest review on Amazon – good or bad, whatever you think. Thanks!
