I am over the moon that Starfell has been longlisted for the Branford Boase Award! It is one of the only awards that recognises the author and editor, and mine – Harriet Wilson – is an actual genius. As well as a genuinely kind, warm and brilliant human being, so this makes it doubly special.
I never expected this, as there are just so many amazing books being published! So when I found out I was bit overwhelmed to say the least. All I can say is a huge huge thank you to the Branford Boase organisers – it is an absolute honour.
Huge congratulations to the other nominees who have written books I have absolutely loved this past year – I’m beyond proud to be considered next to you!
