I wasn’t sure what I was going to talk about this week, then yesterday, I spotted this tweet in my @replies…

Brainchild of UKYA author Andy Rob, here’s a little about the awards from the UKYABA website:
Book-bloggers often create online awards for authors and publishers but, until now, there has been little to redress the balance. These awards seek to do just that, in the same spirit of fun and passion that bloggers exhibit every day. They have been voted on by publishers and authors and the awards themselves are kindly sponsored by some of the UK’s leading and most-prestigious publishing houses.
To say I was delightfully shocked and surprised is a massive understatement!
In other news, I’m going to have to be properly on top of my blogging this week, as I’m off away for a short break the following week, so will need to double up on the posts!
