London Book Fair and the Author Blog Awards Party
First, the Awards report, as promised. Despite all your lovely votes, I didn't win. The honours went to The Shopgirl Diaries written by Emily Benet. I've had a look, and it's a really good blog, so I'm not feeling too bad about it! I'll be getting a nice shiny blogbadge for being shortlisted, anyway. Here I am at the party,
Publishing Talk along with Anna Lewis and Jon Stark of Completely Novel and lots of other nice bookie people too numerous to mention. The wine flowed and the chat was chatty and I even wore my eBay Jimmy Choos (which I'd promised Sam Missingham of The Bookseller I'd bring to the party in a rash moment on Twitter).
