Oh my goodness, look what I came across when doing some research on YouTube this morning: the video of the SCBWI Crystal Kite Award for the British Isles and Ireland 2015! I was thrilled to be shortlisted for this award and honoured to see MINTY in such exalted company. Seeing the accompanying video at the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators conference that November was a terrific surprise, but I must confess that I was too excited to truly absorb its content. Now, thanks to the lovely people at SCWBI, I can watch it as often as I like (writing time permitting!)!
Massive thanks to narrator Dom Comlon and to Addy Farmer for her beautiful words about MINTY, and congratulations to winner Clare Furniss and the other shortlisted authors. Yes, I realise this is 2018 and I should have posted about the award ages ago, but better late than never. Right?
