WINNER ANNOUNCED: Huge congratulations to Glennis Virgo for winning our inaugural Debut Writers Over 50 Award with Vile Apparel, a glorious world building novel set against the rich fabric of 16th-century Bologna where a young woman seamstress fights for justice and her ambitions in a male-dominated world.

Jenny Brown Associates’ Award is for debut novelists resident in the UK aged 50 and above. We hope to run the Award again in 2025. 

In the Musselburgh library today on the new release shelf you will find The Paris Peacemakers.

It’s a stunning read, I highly recommend it. Fascinating to read from the point of view of three people who went away from home to serve in the war in different roles.

Feeling a wee bit bowled over by the outpouring for Joshua yesterday - thanks to everyone who liked, shared, and said lovely things about this special book.
