What She Saw Makes Not The Booker 2019 Longlist!

I am absolutely delighted to tell you that my debut psychological thriller, What She Saw has made the Guardian's 'Not the Booker' prize longlist! Can you believe it... my little book!

Huge thanks to Tracy Fells for nominating me.

So what is this prize and why am I so excited? Well, it was launched by The Guardian in 2009 as a way of allowing the public to decide what novels are the year's winners rather than a judging panel made up of industry experts. A great idea don't you think? The longlist this year is made up of around 170 books with some big names on it, such as Ian McEwan and Kate Atkinson, but wouldn't it be lovely if a new writer made the shortlist of three?

... and wouldn't it be lovely if that author was me?!

That's where you come in. If you read and loved What She Saw, I'd be hugely grateful if you voted for it. All you have to do is click on the link below, and vote in the 'comments' section below the list of authors. You have to vote for two books from the list and write a short review of your favourite. Your comment must begin with the word VOTE. Simples.

Now, of course, I have no expectations of making the shortlist but to see people voting for What She Saw would be absolutely wonderful. Reading the Not The Booker review will hopefully encourage others to buy and enjoy it too.

Thank you!
