Nell Continues to Impress
England’s international Page Turner Awards competition announced today that The Private Misadventures of Nell Nobody is a finalist in the Book Award category, and has advanced to the long list! It made the finals last year in the Writing Award category, before it was a published book. A new panel of judges has decided to advance it in this year’s competition, so I can claim that it has been a finalist two years’ running.
Thank you to the judges for their esteem, and to everyone who has read the book and complemented it. I would (probably) write even without the positive reinforcement, but it makes me feel good that people seem to like Nell and her mentor, Horatio Nelson.
