Yesterday I discovered that The Ghostly Father has been nominated for the Guardian First Book Award for 2014, in the "books nominated by readers" category. Needless to say, I was gobsmacked, proud and humbled, all at the same time.
But this is only the start. If it's going to stand any chance of getting even to the longlist stage, it's going to need a lot of support - and that apparently includes the number of nominations it gets at this stage. So, if any of you (and/or any of your friends) have read it, enjoyed it, and think it stands any chance, please could I ask you to add your own nomination to the list?
Here's the link to the site. All the instructions are in the main article, but briefly, you need to make your nomination in the "Comments" thread at the end of the article, beginning with the word "Nomination." All nominations close at midnight on 13 July 2014.
Thank you all in advance :-)
