I've just heard that Jimmy Coates: Killer has been shortlisted for the Hillingdon Secondary Schools Book of the Year. That's my first ever literary shortlist! Obviously, I'm chuffed.
Apparently there are about 60 schools involved in the award, and the winner is announced at a ceremony in March. No word yet on which other books are shortlisted. All I can say is thank you for shortlisting me and, of course, everyone in Hillingdon, vote for me!
Meanwhile, Jimmy Coates: Assassin? (the US edition of my book) has received another good review in the States. The Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA) called it "the perfect primer to the Bourne series by Robert Ludlum."
I consider that quite a compliment, so: thank you, VOYA.
The opinions that are most important to me, of course, are the opinions of people like YOU! If you enjoyed my book, I'm delighted.
If you want to earn my immense and everlasting gratitude, you could leave a review on Amazon (.com or .co.uk) or CLICK HERE and write a review of the book for Blue Peter.
