There was lots of excitement, chat and fun when I went along to the official announcement of the shortlists for the book awards at Dublin’s Bord Gais Theatre. You have never seen so many happy authors, publishers and book sellers in one place.
I am in very good company as the other authors on the shortlist for the Irish Independent Popular Fiction Book of the Year are Graham Norton, Cecelia Ahern, Emily Hourican, Hazel Gaynor and Ross O’Carroll Kelly.
It is heart-warming to know that so many of you have enjoyed reading Rebel Sisters.
I’m really looking forward to a big night out on 16th November when the awards will be presented at the Irish Book Awards Ceremony and Gala Dinner in Dublin’s Double Tree Hilton Hotel. It will be broadcast on RTE One on Saturday 19th November and voting is now open…

Voting closes at midnight on 11th November 2016.
