I was thrilled to bits that Monkey Wars made the shortlist for the UKLA Book Awards 2014 today. It’s the only UK award chosen by teachers, and sets some very high judging standards, looking for “language rich in layered meanings, imaginative expression and exciting vocabulary.”
Not surprisingly, the other 5 books on the shortlist are real powerhouse titles, including 2013 Carnegie Winner Maggot Moon!
But when I tried to tweet my thanks to UKLA for putting me in such august company, first I ended up at the UK Locksmiths’ Association, then I started talking to the UK Lingerie Awards!
You’ve got to be so careful on Twitter these days!
