The International Rubery Book Award is 'a prestigious international book award seeking the best books by indie writers, self published authors and books published by independent presses, judged by reputable judges. Creative writing is such a key part of life for those who enjoy writing yet it is increasingly difficult to become traditionally published. Through our reputation of finding quality and outstanding books we aim to bring recognition to the works that win and heighten an author's profile. The Rubery Prize is now a well-established name in the publishing world.'
I'm thrilled to have been shortlisted. The judges described Wild Quiet as 'interestingly cosmopolitan'... 'an entertaining and varied collection.'
