Lovely, lovely news.
I’m so thrilled to say that Dear Mrs Bird has been shortlisted for The British Book Awards 2019 Debut Book of the Year. It’s a huge honour to be nominated for a Nibbie, and especially to be in such glorious company in this category.
The most massive thank you to The Bookseller, Picador Books, Pan Macmillan and my absolute acest of agents, Jo Unwin at JULA. Jo, I am beyond excited to say, has been shortlisted for Literary Agent of the Year. It is so very richly deserved.
Thank you everyone; booksellers, librarians, bloggers, journalists and of course readers for all your support. It’s here because of you guys. 😍😍😍
