Way back in the throws of winter I was urged to enter my crime novel Winter Downs for the Arnold Bennett Book Prize.
I was completely shocked to be told this week that it was amongst the five titles that had been short listed, which are:
- Poetry anthology. A Less Clear Dream by Roger Bloor
- Historic murder mystery Winter Downs by Jan Edwards
- Murder mystery Red is the Colour by Mark L. Fowler
- Dystopian superhero novel Superhero City by Eddie Skelson
- Illustrated children’s book Nana Duck by Kathy Tallentire
The winners to be announced on 9th June, so much nail biting before then!
