I attended my first ever award event last night and it was awesome! Our Em was shortlisted for The YoungMinds Book Award so my agent Penny, editor Hannah and I put on our matching heels and chic black outfits (fluke not planned!) and set off for the Unicorn Theatre. We didn't win (huge congratulations to Siobahn Curham) but if that's losing then winning must be phenomenal! It was so much fun chatting to my fellow authors, assorted editors and judges, and best of all a sprinkling of teen readers. Marvelous!
