Red Ink has made the list of books in the running for the 2014 CILIP Carnegie Medal.
The Carnegie Medal is the gold standard in literature for young people. Previous winners include Sally Gardener, Patrick Ness, Terry Pratchett, Philip Pullman and C.S. Lewis.
I’m thrilled to see my name alongside experienced authors, like Malorie Blackman and David Almond. And doubly thrilled that six of my Hot Key Books stablemates are also in the running for the 2014 prize. Go Team Hot Key!
The full list of nominees can be found here. The longlist will be announced in February.
Will keep you posted…
