Being a book editor brings all its own rewards – getting to work with brilliant authors and stories everyday being one of them – but it’s even more exciting when al the hard work of my fabulous authors pays off. Which is why I’m so excited to share the wonderful news that two of my talented authors have been shortlisted for the Selfies Awards 2021.
The Selfies Awards were created to celebrate the best in self-publishing and are judged on the quality of the writing; the production values of the book; an enticing cover and blurb that successfully addresses the target audience; and an effective and creative marketing and publicity strategy that has the potential for great sales.
Both Simon McCleave’s The Snowdonia Killings and AJ Wills’s His Wife’s Sister are both shortlisted in the adult fiction category, and I couldn’t be more proud. Congratulations!
If you haven’t read them yet, check out the below for a taster and make sure to grab your copy before the winners are announced on 20th April 2021.

His Wife’s Sister by Adrian Wills. Mara Sitwell was only eleven when she went missing. Nineteen years later, she’s been found wandering through remote woodland, alone and confused. She says she’s been kept in an underground cell for all these years – but refuses to reveal anything about the man who snatched her. What does she have to hide? And who is she protecting?*
*Disclaimer: Although I did not work on His Wife’s Sister with A J Wills, I am excited to have worked on his upcoming title.
