Weird Lies WINS Saboteur2014 Award for BEST ANTHOLOGY

I’m going to be spending the morning editing all references to the lovely Weird Lies on the website  to AWARD WINNING Weird Lies, because, ladies, gentleman and aliens… WE WON!!

So what does it all mean, apart from the warm glow and the little star thingy and the aforementioned editing of the website?

It means that a lot of people like what we do – the award is by public vote (THANK YOU everyone who nominated and voted for us, you are lovely, lovely people).

It might mean it’s easier to get books into bookshops, and sold – you might think that creativity is its own reward, but we all need to eat.

It might mean we get more gigs for our readings – speaking of – TONIGHT you can hear lovely Liars’ League actors Tony Bell, Silas Hawkins, Carrie Cohen, Sean Patterson, Lisa Rose and Sarah Feathers reading from AWARD WINNING* Weird Lies, and it’s equally terrific stable fellow, Lovers’ Lies, at Misty Moon, where we will also be PREVIEWING the animated trailer (by upcoming animator Nick Page) for our next book, Devilskein & Dearlove. I will say nothing more, other than it’s ACE (Misty Moon aficionados, yes that is what I mean.)

(* wondering how long it will take to get bored with typing that)

It was an excellent event, which kept the energy going all afternoon and all evening, with live readings from all sorts of poets and authors, including London Lies author and Oxford local, Emily Cleaver.Emily Cleaver reading at Sabotage

A BIG thank you to everyone I forgot to thank last night, I hadn’t written a speech, so it was very off the cuff.

And a very big thank you to all the writers, in AWARD WINNING Weird Lies and all the other books, you are all brilliant.

And an especially big thank you to Alix, who turns out for almost every live event and does front-of-house so brilliantly. For someone who said she didn’t want to be involved, she does an epic amount, and it wouldn’t happen without her.
