Woo hoo! I received the most exciting email from my publisher, Sweet Cherry Publishing.

Book 1 of Hopeless Heroes (Here Comes Hercules) has been nominated for the Fantastic Book Awards! It’s  wonderful to know that children are enjoying my quirky, time-travelling twist on Greek mythology.

The Fantastic Book Awards is an annual book event organised by the Lancashire School Library Service. Developed in partnership with schools, it’s designed to encourage kids to read for fun. Children aged 9-11 (years 5-6) are challenged throughout the year to select the story books they like the best.

It’s a great way for kids to meet, discuss and share their bookish views in a relaxed way. Activities can be run as a book club or for a whole class, and can inspire both able and reluctant readers.

This year’s nomination list is pretty amazing – I’ve got my reading plan all sorted!

Good luck to all the nominees – including me 🙂
