I heard some more good news today. Kirkus have chosen EARTH GIRL as one of their Best Teen Books of 2013!
I’m delighted that Earth Girl Die Begegnung has been shortlisted for the Science Fiction category of the Leiserpreis 2013. Voting will be open until November 28th. Please take a look and vote here.
Typhoon Haiyan slammed into the Philippines on Friday (8 November), causing catastrophic damage. Authors for the Philippines is an online auction to raise money for the Red Cross’s Typhoon Haiyan Appeal.
The full list of items is here. I naturally recommend the signed copies of Earth Girl and Earth Star (item 145), but you can bid on a huge range of other items as well.
Details of how to bid are here. Bidding is open now, and will close at 8pm GMT on Wednesday 20th November.
