I received great news on World Book Day (Thursday 2nd March) that The Blue Man is a joint winner of Book of the Month on the Chill with a Book Awards website, alongside Kathryn Gauci for her book, The Song of the Partisans.

My award-winning book, The Blue Man and Premier Readers’ Award certificate

Many thanks to Pauline and Clive and the Chill with a Book team for choosing my novel for Book of the Month. I first received word on Valentine’s Day that The Blue Man was in the shortlist for Book of the Month when I found out I had won a Premier Readers’ Award.

Congratulations also to my fellow joint winner, Kathryn Gauci. She’s a USA Today best-selling author of primarily Historical fiction. I shall be adding her book to my ever-growing tbr list!
