I was honoured to be shortlisted last year.  Making the short list again this year had me filled with pride and thrilled to be listed among so many talented writers. Congrats everyone!

I'm thrilled and honoured to have made the shortlist for the Book Award. Huge congratulations to fellow shortlistees. 

A quick question - is anyone else getting 'access denied' when trying to access and download the shortlist badge? I'm keen to use this on social media.

It is thrilling & humbling to have been shortlisted for the Book Award. And I am honored to be recognized amid such a deep pool of talent. Good luck to everyone at the Award Ceremony!

Many congratulations to all who made it through to the Shortlists - slightly sad that I am not numbered amongst you, but to have reached the Longlist is still honour enough for me...for now, anyway.  May I wish each and every one of you the very best of luck for the final phase.

Although I am late in posting my thrill in being named to the Shortlists, my appreciation and excitement hasn't waned since learning of this honor. Heartfelt congrats to all those who made the Shortlists and continued success in the future!

Congratulations to Jodie Smith, Susan Almond and P.J. Roscoe, who along with me are the shortlisted candidates for the Book to Film award.  Here's hoping there will be a film made of each of our novels. The future is exciting!

Susan Almond Wed, 19/10/2022 - 00:13

Having read the other submissions I am absolutely blown away to be considered alongside three such talented writers in this shortlist. Jodie Smith's work is so original, P.J. Roscoe creates such a fantastic atmosphere in her writing and Justine Gilbert I think captures that particular period of history perfectly. Congratulations to all three of you and best of luck for having your books adapted for the screen (followed of course by their being awarded BAFTAs, Oscars etc - that goes without saying! 🤣) 

R J PARKHOUSE Wed, 19/10/2022 - 15:44

There is a feast of talent on display in all the award shortlists this year. Congratulations and best wishes to all. I'm honored to be included in your number on the Writing Award and the Mentorship Award shortlists.

Michele E. Gwynn Fri, 21/10/2022 - 10:16

Well, I posted a congratulations to all my fellow Shortlisters in the Book to Film category the other day, but my comment is gone, and the link to the shortlist is gone, and some of the comments have me scratching my head. Anyone know what happened to the Shortlist link for Book Adaptation Needed?

There are 5 of us in there, and a wonderfully talented group of ladies it is. Again, congrats. I'm honored to be among you. 

JAY JONES Sat, 22/10/2022 - 14:24

My heartiest congratulations to all my fellow Shortlisters. It is such an honour to be chosen in the Writing Award category.

Good luck everyone.

P.J. Roscoe Fri, 04/11/2022 - 12:38

Gosh, how fabulous to be among the amazing shortlist for Book Adaptions to Screenplay. Such a fabulous energy to be in with amazing fellow authors x
