Great day at The Word (National Centre for the Written Word) to give its grand title. As part of this year’s Write Festival the library ran its first ever short story competition and asked me along with crime writer Adam Peacock to judge it. Which is a privilege, so thanks due to those who thought of us. Today was the celebration of the winning and short-listed stories. It seemed to go well though I’m always a wee bit anxious about reading out other people’s work, only because I want to make a good job of it and not spoil something which is precious to the writer.  Thankfully there weren’t too many hitches, there were some lovely looking books to hand out and some cheques for the top three stories. Well done to all who entered.  Meanwhile I’m working on a serial for Women’s Weekly- there’s a first time for everything- and have to say the process has been really interesting and something of a challenge to someone who’s been writing short stories for so long. I’ll let you know how it’s coming along.  Oh and the rewrite of the novel short listed in the Kelpies Prize is now complete. Looking for a home for it...

More than pleased to find that I've been short listed in the annual Kelpies Prize a wonderful competition run by Floris Books in Edinburgh, which champions children's and young adults stories with a Scottish feel. Fingers and pretty much everything else very crossed that my novel Haunted Tide can make the final hurdle!  It's been long in the writing, actually, had many edits and rethinks but it's a story I really like and believe in. So obviously I'm delighted that somebody else really likes and believes in it too! Here are the other two shortlisters and what a pedigree!  Hannah Foley and Robin Scott-Elliot. Look them up on and you'll see what I'm up against!

Whatever happens, I'm sure all three of us find it great that someone out there appreciates the work we do. Hard slog, that's what it is and it's nice to feature on a list! Anyway, it means a day trip up the road with my little band of supporters to meet another little band of supporters. If you're going to be at the Edinburgh International Book Festival and you've got space in your schedule, the award ceremony takes place at The Party Pavilion at 7.30pm.  Can't wait! Thanks for stopping by and reading my exciting news!
