The People’s Book Prize is an annual (UK Literary Award). Titles are nominated by Publishers, and are voted on by the public. The prize is administrated by Titiana Wilson for the People’s Book Prize limited. One of its roles is to recognize the work of first time authors.
My novel, Darby, was nominated by Ecanus Publishing, Great Brittan. Darby was my first novel. The sequel to Darby is titled” Hanging Dog, An Appalachian Community, will be on the market soon. I might add that Hanging Dog, An Appalachian Community, will be much more enjoyable if the reader has read Darby, but Hanging Dog is also a stand-alone novel taking place in Cherokee County.
At the launch of The People’s Book Prize, Dame Beryl Bainbridge, the prize’s founding patron, stated, “Something like this, once it takes off will be of enormous importance to writers.”
I feel very honored to have received this nomination. You can vote for three book, but only once for Darby. Darby will be in the fiction category.
Voting begins March 1, 2014 through May 20, 2014. The winner will be announced May 28, 2014. To vote type in: http://www.peoplesbookprize.com/how_vote.htm and following the instructions. You must register to vote.
