Great news last night: RANGATIRA is a finalist in this year’s New Zealand Post Book Awards. The other two fiction finalists are both excellent short-story collections: FROM UNDER THE OVERCOAT by Sue Orr, and Fiona Kidman’s THE TROUBLE WITH FIRE.
I’m very excited to be a finalist in our national book awards, and will be going home (thanks, Penguin!) in late July in time for the awards ceremony.
If you live in NZ and want to nominate RANGATIRA for the People’s Choice Award, you can do that at the Booksellers.co.nz web site. The deadline is Friday July 6th.
