Exciting evening ahead ......

Dear All,

Apologies to all who have already received this news (two seperate e-mail lists which overlap).

This evening I am off to the prize giving for the £30,000 Rathbones Folio Prize.  Mary Ann Sate, Imbecile (which is your book as much as mine) is up for the prize.  

This is a huge moment for Unbound and for me.  There has always been a question mark about whether crowd funding 'works' for literary books .... Well, I'm glad we've got that one cleared up.

Absolutely not expecting to win - but just very excited that a crowd funded book gets recognised at the highest level and wanting to send a huge thank you to everyone who has supported me.

Exciting.  Very best wishes to you all.  Guardian link for review below.
