Yay, I won an award!

6It’s a super duper awesome start to the new year, because after a long hiatus during which I’ve been working reeeeeeally hard and not blogging so much (sorry, I am still alive, honest!), I just found out I won an award for The Day Of The Wave, which I’d only just started writing this time last year. Where does the time go, seriously?!

I won the number 1 Favourite Non-Fiction and Biography Book Award in the THE Book Club (TBC) Arthur Awards for The Day of The Wave, voted by 4000 people! What a nice start to 2016, thank you to whoever voted! You’ve really inspired me to WRITE WRITE WRITE in 2016!

I’m working on something a little different at the moment, so hopefully I’ll have some news about that soon.

Thank you readers, and happy new year! x
