International Rubery Book Award

I’m very excited! I’ve been awarded 2nd prize for Unravelling in the International Rubery Book Award for books published independently or self published. I received a cheque and a plaque. A Plaque!

And of course – the glory!

Most important are the positive comments from the judges who felt Unravelling is ‘an enjoyable and captivating read. It is well written, intricate, with a compelling narrative and strong dialogue. Unravelling deserves to be recognised.’

Whoopee! Perhaps not the Booker or the Orange, but whoopee do dah all the same!

  1. Hello Lindsay,
    First congratulations on your plaque! and on your second award. I was lucky enough to get on the Rubery long-list (The Story of the Damascus Drum), which thankfully I didn’t discover til after the winner had been announced so spared anxious weeks of unrequited fantasy. I had entered the competition on a whim and forgotten all about it.
    Have you any idea how many entrants were there altogether?
    best wishes
    Christopher Ryan
    I shall now go and investigate unravelling.

    Thank you for your congratulations, Christopher, and for getting in touch. I was a winner in 2011, whereas I presume you were on this year’s longlist. Congratulations on that – always nice when someone recognises your work has merit, isn’t it?
