FAR AWAY SHORT LISTED FOR HNS INDIE AWARD 2016

I’m thrilled to announce that my novel FAR AWAY has moved from the long list to the short list of the Historical Novel Society Indie Award 2016 and so I get to show off with another lovely logo.

I am very honoured and keeping everything crossed! Many,  many thanks to all those of you who have read, reviewed and supported me with the book. It has meant a very great deal to me and as the glorious Janet Webb (the woman in the green dress in the clip below) used to say at the end of the Morecambe and Wise show ‘I love you all.’  Well, she doesn’t actually say it in this clip but she looks so gloriously celebratory I thought this one would do!

  1. Congratulations, Vicky, that’s terrific news. And so wonderful when ‘your little book’ goes out into the big, wide world and gets the attention it deserves…Dare I suggest that you dust off your own green gown, no matter what happens on the night?

    • Thanks Colin – isn’t she just fabulous? I’m such a bloody introvert but who knows what might happen if I put on a dress like that. Maybe my inner drag queen would come out. Sometimes I feel in sore need of one!

  2. Dear Vicky
    Congratulations on this news and so deserved.
    I have just finished Far Away and was so moved by the story and way you shared it with us.
    I choose your book for our book club to read and I look forward to discussing it tomorrow evening.
    With warm regards
    Lesley
