Was very chuffed to hear that Act of Faith made it onto the Gold Inky longlist this year. It’s a great honour. A sensational list, too.
Congratulations to everyone on the Gold and Silver longlists. And long live Inky!
I must say I’m quite partial to an awards sticker nowadays. Last week I signed a whole lot of copies of Act of Faith with their new silver CBCA Notables stickers on the covers. Very posh. Although I do rather fancy the idea of a silk sash. With gold fringes. Not for me, you understand. But Signora Contarini would love it.
